The 7 must-do hikes in

La Trace des

Get ready to explore Martinique's south coast by following the trail of this mythical hike, the longest on the island: From Petit Macabou to Anse Caritan, you'll discover incredible landscapes and panoramic ocean views. While it's entirely possible to cover the 30 kilometers in one day (provided you set off early in the morning), the hike is most often envisaged in several stages, as it's divided into 4 sections.

Le Morne Larcher
(Le Diamant) 

Start at the Anse Caffard parking lot and get ready to climb this famous peak. The hike itself takes around 2 hours, the area is shaded, but beware: it's uphill! Over 400 meters of ascent and descent. At the summit, the reward is more than worth the effort: a breathtaking view of the Rocher and Diamant Bay.

Les Pitons du

Often hidden in the clouds, these 5 peaks in a row bear witness to Martinique's volcanic activity. Expect a minimum 6h30 hike on steep, sometimes slippery trails with particularly dense vegetation. Their ascent is reserved for the most experienced hikers, in good physical condition and only with a specialist climbing guide for roped passages.

Mount Pelée
(Saint Pierre)

More than just a hike, climbing our mythical volcano - the island's highest peak at 1397 meters - is a true experience. Choose from one of the 3 circuits that wind around the Mountain - L'Aileron, the Grand Savane trail or the Morne-Macouba trail via Grand Riviere - and get ready for a physical but accessible hike that will offer breathtaking scenery on a clear day. A word of advice: don't hesitate to set off early in the morning, so you'll have a better chance of getting an open sky at the summit.

La Presqu'ile de la Caravelle

In this protected nature reserve, home to numerous endemic species, you'll discover  an incredible diversity of landscapes, ranging from dry forest - with its distinctive vegetation - to mysterious mangroves housing a fascinating ecosystem. Along the way, the secret Baie du Trésor awaits you for a refreshing swim. Whether you choose the short or the long loop, rest assured that the sun will be with you all the way.

Grand Rivière
(Le Prêcheur)

Without doubt one of the island's most challenging hikes, through the immense forest on the northwest flank of Montagne Pelée. If you're up for the challenge, you'll discover sumptuous landscapes that change over the course of the 16 kilometers of trails. Please note that this is a one-way hike, with no possibility of a loop. So plan to leave a car at the finish or book a fishing boat to take you back to your starting point. Extreme caution is advised on this trail, as there is no telephone network along the entire route, so the hike must be done with an expert.
