Drive right up to La Soufriere Drive-In Volcano and explore an active geothermal crater of the dormant Qualibou volcano. Marketed as "the world's only drive-in volcano," the crater features many hot springs and sulfur-emitting openings in the crust. Park your car in the crater, and then explore the area with the help of a professional guide. Afterwards, dip into the scalding hot sulfur pools and mud baths downstream, noted for their skincare benefits.

  • I'm glad I went but wouldn't do it again. We paid extra for a few minutes of talking and the get a better look at Gabriel's Hole. Not to mention a steep enough walk there and back to exhaust my...  more »
  • We stopped for 30 minutes to hop in the black water and then cover ourselves in sulphur smelling mud. It was a fun first time experience. Great for photos. But not worth doing again.  more »

  • A must while visiting St Lucia. Drive through volcano with mud bath. Stinky but we'll worth h the experience. You need a good 2 hours here. Our taxi driver Lynoss dropped us at parking lot and we walked up to the volcano and did tour. Our guide Michelle was very informative and allowed us to spend time at various spots to view and take pictures. We looked through the different vendors there and bought a few trinkets. Walked back down to mud bath and stored our belongings, we had our bathing suits already on but there is change rooms there. Got wet in one of the five bathes and then got a thick coat of mud all over our bodies. Waited for about an half hour for the mud to dry, this helps your skin tighten to make you feel and look 10 years younger. It works a day later and my skin is still right.
  • The worlds only drive though volcano, and it is gifting with views of bubbling sulphur craters, a mud bath, and secret hot springs. The initial sulphur smell is very imposing but doesn't linger or diminish the overall experience.
