Both islands are tranquil and secluded, offering a peaceful ambience and breath-taking scenes at every turn. St Kitts is the bigger of the two, offering the historical Basseterre capital and vibrant beach bars in Frigate Bay, which marry well with the pristine shores and rich culture the island holds. Nevis, just two miles away, is a little more private, with beautiful nature trails, shimmering white sand, and the lofty volcano Nevis Peak.
Officially called St Christopher, St Kitts was once the oldest and wealthiest British colony, and the island is dominated by 17th- and 18th-century forts. A spine-like ridge of volcanic peaks runs across the island’s interior, interspersed with deep, forested ravines that taper down to coastal plains. At the foot of these towering peaks, which include the imposing Mount Liamuiga, a host of sugar cane plantations, disused sugar mills and colonial houses spread across fertile coastal plains.
Experience the spectacular scenery of St Kitts on this unforgettable hiking adventure to the top of Mt. Liamuiga, an extinct volcano. Your 8-hour round trip begins with a drive by Land Rover to the base of the 3,792ft volcano. During the vigorous 2.5 hour hike to the crater, admire and learn about the exotic surrounding flora and fauna from your guide. Be sure to bring a camera to capture the breathtaking vistas that await you at the top.
Cutting through 30 miles of scenic St Kitts, this captivating journey runs around the circumference of the island to showcase every angle. Featuring air-conditioned carriages and an open-air observation deck, this is a truly different way to see the many sights of this picturesque isle.
