A Volcano Hiking Adventure

Mount Liamuga's peak is 3,792 feet tall, the highest point on St. Kitts. Mountainsides are covered in farmland and small villages as high as 1,500 feet up the mountain. After that point, lush tropical rainforests cover the slopes until a cloud forest encapsulates everything at 3,000 feet. All of this is yours to explore.

During this St. Kitts excursion, journey to historic St. Paul's village aboard an open-air safari vehicle, traveling along a dense rainforest trail. Breathtaking views will leave a lasting impact on your eyes; the entire island and Caribbean Sea are visible, as well as neighboring islands Saba, Statia, St. Barths, St. Martin, Antigua, and Nevis.

Various stops are made along the hike to ensure safety and rest. Book this St. Kitts shore excursion today for a mesmerizing experience atop the island's tallest volcano.

Must do if you are in good shape
March 08, 2020
It was an awesome hike with only 3 people. They are not kidding when they say this is strenuous. It is a good thing I am in shape. Great guide. Provided water, juice, and snacks. Provided great history on the way to the hike.

Tough hike. Need to train
March 07, 2020
This was a brutal hike. Up for 2.5 hours with very few stops. Not much time for photos, either. It was muddy and a lot of scrambling over large rocks. The guide kept telling us to hurry up. Didn't spend much time at the top. We were in the clouds, so the view was not great. The trip down was not much easier. Total of 4.5 hours. We are mid 50's and in decent shape. We were fine, but slow. The 30 somethings with us had no problems. My quads hurt for days afterwards!

worth every penny
March 01, 2020
this was amazing but I must confess it was a whole lot more difficult than I thought it would be. they're not lying about it being extreme. the view at the top with the clouds coming in over the opposite peak was breathtaking. be aware though that the beginning is thru a rain forest and if it rains (it did for us) the trail becomes very slippery and more treacherous.

Volcano climb with Adrienne
January 07, 2020
Amazing trek through the jungle, and a great hard technical climb with a fantastic guide, Adrienne has been climbing since age 11 and he takes the scientists through the jungle, he knows horticulture and brought fresh squeezed frozen sour orange juice that was delicious. From meet up to drop off, great experience 👍👍

Tough but rewarding
August 28, 2019
We're an active family with 2 teens with probably above average conditioning, but not athletes. The hike was through very tough but gorgeous terrain. Lots of wet tree roots and slippery rocks. If it had rained it would have made it nearly impossible. There are parts of the trail where you are quite literally using your hands and feet in order to climb nearly vertical slopes. Despite the challenging nature of the trek, and indeed because of it, we found it to be an extremely rewarding experience. Our guide was awesome. He set a brisk pace but stopped frequently to ensure the entire group was with us. He even lugged a huge bottle of lemonade and some homemade bread to top with us so we could regain some energy before descending back down. I would highly recommend taking this tour if you are an avid hiker and love being out in a tropical rain forest. However, if you have little kids or if you are not in decent shape, or if there is wet weather, I would think twice about taking this on.

Loved it!
May 04, 2019
This is listed as a tough hike and it is! It is worth it though. You climb about 2100 ft of elevation change. The 1st part is a path, then it goes to climbing roots, then some rocks at the top. It was worth it for sure!
