Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park Tours

star-4
1 Review
Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park
Set atop an 800-foot hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Brimstone Hill Fortress is arguably one of the most fascinating sights on St Kitts. The fortress itself was designed by the British and built by African slaves, who finished the project in 1790 after 100 years of construction. Powerful cannons were brought up the hillside to defend against outward attack, but that still didn’t stop the fortress from falling after a month-long siege by the French. Today Brimstone Hills is a UNESCO World Heritage site with sweeping views of the island, from the tropical shoreline on Sandy Point to offshore islands that are still ruled by the English, the French, and the Dutch. Amazing for not only the engineering that went into building the fortress, but also the way that it’s been preserved after centuries of toil and wear, Brimstone Hill Fortress is a must-visit sight for any traveler to St. Kitts.

Practical Info

The parking area for tour buses and cars requires driving a steep hill that doesn’t have guardrails—so be sure to use caution when driving. While the view is still excellent from the main fortress level, visitors need to climb 30 steps to reach the top of the fortress. The video portion of the visit is optional if you’d prefer to just wander the fort.
Address: Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, Sandy Point Town, St. Kitts, St Kitts and Nevis
Hours: 9:30am-5:30pm daily. Closed on Good Friday and Christmas.
Admission: $10 for adults and $5 for children

 The Brimstone Hill Fortress Hike

The Brimstone Hill Fortress Hike

Like the rock of Gibraltar the Brimstone Hill Fortress was in the hands of two European powers, who have fought each other for control of this Hill and the island. Both the British and the French built forts to defend themselves from the Spanish and from each other. In 1689 the French were able to capture the British Fort Charles in Sandy Point. By taking cannons to Brimstone Hill which conveniently overlooked Fort Charles. The British were then able to recapture Fort Charles in 1690. Recognizing its strategic importance the British started the building of this magnificent fortress. And that's just a taste of the rich history to be explored on our exclusive hike.

Volcano Caldera (Mt. Liamuiga) Trek

Volcano Caldera (Mt. Liamuiga) Trek

star-5
On the Volcano Caldera Trek you get to hike up every tier of the volcanic cone and you are almost guaranteed to get a bit dirty as you hike, explore, climb and pull yourself to the Caldera of mount Liamuiga. This trek starts at 750ft above the Caribbean Sea and has the perfect back drop with an amazing view of the sweeping landscape down to the Caribbean Sea. The memorable thing with this tour is that you will actually witness the changes in the tropical succession stages as you ascend higher and higher towards the caldera. You will feel the temperature drop, you will see the changes in vegetation, and you will experience the increasing incline as you get closer and closer to the caldera. It is truly a once in a live time trek to experience and once at the top your breath will be taken away by the stunning view while you stand 2800ft above the Caribbean Sea and 600ft above the bottom of the volcanic crater with a rim opening to almost one mile away.
