Scale Saint Kitt's impressive Mount Liamuiga, a 3,792-foot (1,156m) high extinct volcano, enjoying magnificent views and a picnic lunch at the top, during this hiking adventure. This strenuous hike is a great adventure for anyone looking to get off the beaches and experience a different side of this lush, mountainous island.
Start your Mt. Liamuiga hike with pickup from your Basseterre or Frigate Bay hotel, proceeding to the trailhead for your vigorous hike towards the peak of this one-time volcano. The walk begins in the bright-green environs of the island's tropical jungle, a climate zone where you'll observe towering trees, swaying vines, and colorful flowers. Along the way, your tour guide will point out highlights of the island's diverse range of flora and fauna.
After you arrive at the peak of this extinct volcano, take in the vistas of the entire island below as well as the nearby islands of St. Barts and Nevis, set among the beautiful blue of the Caribbean Sea. It's in this special setting you'll enjoy a picnic lunch and rest up before beginning the hike down.
Following lunch, head back down to the start of your hike, where a Land Rover waits to drop you off back at your St. Kitts hotel.

A bit strenuous for an old man but a worthwhile experience. Bring plenty of water and be prepared for the view at the top to be hidden by the clouds.
Our tour guide was fantastic. We had a group of 7 on our hike- 3 younger hikers, 4 older hikers. The guide did a great job making sure everyone could catch up and catch a break when they needed it. NOTE: we didn't have any cruise ship passengers on our hike- if we did, we would not have had this luxury, as they are more time-crunched.
The hike has some difficult parts, so I would suggest being in good shape beforehand. I am pretty active and I found it strenuous but not a killer. The views at the top are definitely worth it!
