Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Saint Lucia.
Hike through the forest paths to find the secret hot mineral spa pools. Eat the freshest picked fruits and scrumptious healthy cuisine on the island. Sink into your mat holding the final yoga pose. Or just relax by the pool overlooking the Caribbean sea’s sunset with a book.

Though St. Lucia is officially part of the British Commonwealth, do not underestimate the French influence to the island. All the districts are French named and it is still a member of the Francophone due to the French Creole/Patois spoken by the natives, though English is the official language. Particularly in Soufrière you will still be able to see old French Creole style houses scattered around the district, especially downtown. Where you’ll find the noisy daily fruits and vegetable vendors and local fishermen bringing in the daily catch at the waterfront.
As well as the magnificent Pitons, Soufrière is home to most of the St. Lucia tourist attractions. Springs, hiking trails, botanical gardens, waterfalls, plantation estates, snorkeling sites are all situated here. It also has some of the most prestigious award winning hotels in the Caribbean.
Soufrière was the first capital in St. Lucia when it was under French rule. This beautiful island was fiercely fought over by the French and the British and switched possession 14 times before finally becoming a British territory in 1814. Soufriere was home to most prominent plantation estates on the island due to its rich terrain and natural scenery.
Soufrière is a French term meaning ‘sulphur in the air’ due to the volcanic area now called the Sulphur Springs. It is an Unesco heritage site being the only drive-through volcano in the world. Connected to the volcano are many warm springs and pools scattered across the district. Visits to the pools will be scheduled during the week’s itinerary.
