Mount Pelee

Infamous for the super destructive eruption of 1902 – the only volcanic disaster on French soil in history – Mount Pelee soars above the Caribbean clouds on the northern side of Martinique.

A truly breath-taking sight, its silhouette lurches large over the town it once utterly razed: Saint-Pierre.

While officially only semi-dormant, the peak has become an irresistible hiking spot for many outdoorsy types hitting to the island.

A trail can be found weaving up the sinewy ridges of the massif just outside Morne Rouge, and walkers can look forward to some unforgettable panoramas over Dominica in the distance!
