La Soufrière

Highly recommended
The symbol of Guadeloupe, La Soufrière is an active volcano at the south end of the island. The highest point in the Lesser Antilles (1 467m), it is the island's major tourist attraction. A surge in activity in 2005 (following serious quakes in 1976-1977) means that the "old lady" is now watched with heightened concern. Climb the mountain on the Chemin des Dames from St-Claude. Splendid scenery, nature at its powerful and awesome, as stressed by the constant smoke from its crater. Exercise caution.
