BodyHoliday Adventure Programme
This is a group led multi-sport adventure challenge, not a race. We leave BodyHoliday by mountain bike and ride a 10 km wild challenging dirt trail to the Atlantic beaches of Donkey Beach, and Cotton Bay. From there we cross back over from the Atlantic to the Caribbean coast at Pigeon Island.
From Pigeon Island the course involves a short run challenge of 4 km that combines the flat with a hill climb. Don’t worry… the hill climb does have its rewards, abseil 100 feet down off a cliff on the far side of Pigeon Island. Then it’s a scramble through the woods down to a remote pebble beach. Dive into the sea like David Hasselhoff and knock off the short swim out to your Ocean Kayak. Climb aboard and start the 2.5 km endurance kayak back to BodyHoliday along the Northern coast line of Saint Lucia.
When you finally step out onto our warm sand, not only will you be part of an exclusive few to have completed the circuit but the team and the crowds will be there to welcome and cheer you on!
The course is designed to be achievable by people with an intermediate fitness level. Sign up for your place today as spaces are limited.

Stage 1: Bike Ride – all terrain; 10 km
Stage 2: Run – 4 km.
Stage 3: Rappel/Abseil; 100 Ft.

If joining extreme adventures is your thing, then you will love climbing Mount Gimie, the highest point in St Lucia!
Mount Gimie is the tallest mountain in the West Indies. The mountain’s peak reaches 950 m (3117 ft). It is of volcanic origin and is covered by lush tropical rainforest.
The initial part of the trail is a descent towards the base of Mount Gimie. The ascent is long but not too severe. The summit is small and grassy. After a rigorous hike up, at the summit, you will revel in the magnificent, breath-taking views – Pigeon Island to the north, Vieux Fort to the south and the Pitons west. The view from the summit on a clear day will have you checking off that experience from your bucket-list.
Mount Gimie Hike is one of our most extreme adventures at BodyHoliday!

The Pitons are the most famous landmark of both St Lucia and the Caribbean, and have been declared a World Heritage Site.

At the summit, you will revel in the magnificent, breath-taking views.

If the idea of climbing to the top of Gros Piton seems impossible, why not walk this Nature Trail instead? Located between the iconic Pitons this scenic nature trail is heavenly. You will enjoy the same spectacular views from high up without all the hard work as the car park is 3/4 of the way up the hill. The walk is guided by friendly, knowledgeable locals and takes around 45 minutes to complete. You will learn about St. Lucian culture, history, and exotic horticulture. After the walk you will take a short drive to Piton Falls where warm mineral water cascades 30 feet into a pool below. The warm waters from the three mineral pools below the Falls will make for an ideal rest stop after your walk.
This scramble and abseiling session has been called thrilling, inspiring, wild, exhilarating and awesome! Our guides will lead you on an abseil down into a 120 foot gorge onto the sand bank of a shallow river. The further you go down the gorge, the closer you get to the wild flora and fauna of the island. If you have second thoughts about doing the abseil, you can hike to the landing area. This 2-hour trek is adventurous and requires a high level of fitness.
US$150 per person
This experience takes you on an adventure to one of the few accessible waterfalls on the eastern side of the island near the fishing village of Dennery. The trail descends and takes you across the Dennery River before scrambling through the rainforest. Within half an hour you will hit Errard’s summit and begin to admire the beautiful views across the rainforest. Our guides will lead you on to experience the thrill of abseiling down a 66ft rounded cliff waterfall. Once you have completed the challenge of lowering yourself down the waterfall, with the rush of adrenaline, a short walk brings you back to the starting point.
