There is an active volcano in St Vincent (La Soufrière) that last erupted in 1979. The volcano rises to 4,048 feet or 1234 m. It is the largest of the 3 craters that are present at the summit of the volcano, the other 2, the Somma and the 1812 crater are both presently dormant. Eruptions have generated a series of pyroclastic flows, lahars, ballistic projectiles and ash. The ash generated by the larger eruptions is, in fact, responsible for the yellow cliffs that run along the windward coast of the island.
Hiking the La Soufrière Volcano is always an amazing experience! If you have some extra energy, once you reach the top, you can go down the crater and experience the silence and beauty inside the crater. In this video, that’s exactly what we do!
