There’s a new way to see St. Lucia.

New tour company Mini Cooper Road Trip is offering an exhilirating new experience aimed at intrepid island visitors interested in exploring the mountainous eastern Caribbean gem.

The nine-hour tours – led by a guide in his own vehicle at the head of the convoy – depart from the north-coast neighborhood of Rodney Bay and include several of St. Lucia’s most popular sights, including Pigeon Island National Park; the capital of Castries; Vieux Fort beach, Balenbouche Estate; and Sulphur Springs, home of the famous “drive-in volcano.” Passengers can stop for selfies and envy-inducing Snapchat broadcasts at overlooks of the Pitons and Marigot Bay, and a stops at the Pitons waterfall is also included seasonally.

The See St. Lucia topless tour costs $400 per person or $450 per couple (based on two people sharing) and includes hotel pickup (for northern hotel guests only); lunch in Soufrière; a radio, audio guide and binoculars; and car seats and booster seats for children, if required. A maximum of two additional adults are $150 each. For more information, go to
