Hiking One of the Deadliest Volcanoes Ever Saint-Pierre  Martinique

Hiking One of the Deadliest Volcanoes Ever

On May 8, 1902, a pyroclastic eruption (a current of hot gas and rock) sped towards Saint-Pierre and within minutes destroyed the city and killed 30,000 people.

The volcano is now dormant, and there are number of hikes to the summit of this highest point on the island. I did the L'Aileron hike, which is four hours and five kilometres long, where I was able to see the 1902 and 1929 craters, as well as La Caldeira.
