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.
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!

This is noted as a strenuous hike. Be SURE to take plenty of water. We took 2 bottles each which was not enough for my partner. The jungle was beautiful but the pace was a little fast to look at everything since you had to constantly watch your footing. The trail had a fairly steep incline and there is quite a bit of climbing by pulling up on roots and boulders. One person had hiked the in/out across the Grand Canyon and said this was harder. My partner got dehydrated so I went back to wait with him. As he felt better we decided to go on. It was easier going at our own pace and we eventually caught up. Going down was harder on him than going up and one of the guides stayed behind and walked back with him - about 3 and a half miles. Overall, I enjoyed it and it was quite a feeling of accomplishment. My partner liked it too, he would just be better prepared with water next time. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys hiking and wants a challenge. I am a 71 year-old female.

The guides were great and so much fun!! This hike is definitely not for everyone. We had 4 people drop out in the first 30 min. But the view from the top is totally worth it!! Loved every minute!!
The hike is challenging, but definitely worth it! We ended up with a private tour for just the 2 of us, and our guide Hilton was great. We made it up and back down in 3.5 hours [1hr45min climb, 15min break at the top and 1hr30min to get back down]. There are some narrow areas, and several more difficult sections, but all very doable. We are mid-30s and only hike on vacation. Hilton said he has taken kids as young as 4, and they have hiked it without issue. We met our guide just past the security gates at the port and drove ~45 min in an open air tour bus to the parking area. The last 5 minutes of the ride is a crazy trip over VERY bumpy terrain with tall brush on either side. The hike starts with a ~20 minute walk through the rain forest before the real climbing begins. Hilton stopped for rests frequently on the way up, but kept a very quick pace. Definitely recommend this excursion for anyone considering this hike
