What You Can Expect

St Kitts Scenic Railway Tour

St. Kitts Scenic Railway Tour

Your luxurious railcar features a service bar, restroom and colorful artwork on the walls. The upper level has an open-air observation deck with breathtaking views of the majestic mountain ranges and lush sugar cane fields, and the lower level offers air-conditioned comfort and expansive vaulted windows. Take advantage of the complimentary specialty drinks served throughout the trip.

See fields of sugar canes surrounding the railcar as the railway winds around the slopes of the remnant volcano Mt. Liamuiga. Discover the hidden black sand beach and overgrown plantation estates, and cross steel bridges, including one stretching 300 feet (90 meters) across a deep ravine. You will also pass many villages including the Mansion Village and Saddlers Village, surrounded by fields producing a range of fruit.

The colorful narration of the history of Caribbean and St. Kitts includes tales of the “Last Railway in the West Indies,” which was used to transport sugar cane from the island’s sugar plantations to the sugar factory in Basseterre, St. Kitts capital city. You will also be entertained with folk songs and hymns by the St. Kitts Railway Choir.

At the end of your train ride, transfer to a sightseeing bus to continue your 12-mile (19 km) journey along Island Main Road. The route passes under Brimstone Hill Fortress and through small villages and towns before returning to Basseterre.

Please note: there is no reserved seating. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Customer Reviews

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2013

The train itself was comfortable.. open air up top and allegedly air conditioned on lower level (not in OUR car). Toilet onboard was disgusting -- worse than outhouse. Staff, however, were terrific. "Sites" consisted of 3 bridges, concrete quarry, school kids waving and a beach view here and there.

3 star rating: Worth doing March 2012

This tour was nice. The railway is a nice way to see a lot of the island without driving.
