St. Kitts Natural Beauty and Volcano Tour
Duration: Half Day
The exotic island of St Kitts is just how you’d envisage a lush tropical paradise in the South Pacific, but this idyllic destination is fortunately located a bit closer to home. Together with its smaller sister Nevis, this stunning two-island nation is blessed with some of the most beautiful scenery in the Caribbean. The pristine beaches and majestic mountain peaks are a stunning combination, so exploring both islands is a must if you get the chance. This unforgettable tour will reveal some of St Kitts most breathtaking natural treasures, the highlight being the spectacular Mount Liamuiga volcano.
Blessed with idyllic tropical weather, lush vegetation and breathtaking scenery, St Kitts is certainly one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. Much of this lush green island is blanketed with emerald fields and rolling hillsides, which eventually stretch upwards to the highest point of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, and in fact the entire British Leeward Islands – Mount Liamuiga. Formerly named Mount Misery, this awe-inspiring dormant volcano rises 3,792 feet from the sea in the centre of the island, and the 700ft deep crater at the summit is 0.6 miles (1km) wide. The last verified eruptions from the volcano were recorded around 1600 years ago, although there have been unconfirmed reports of possible eruptions in the late 17th and mid 19th centuries.
Looking down into the crater, which is carpeted in lush tropical greenery, you will understand how Mount Liamuiga – meaning “fertile land” – received its new name. One of the best ways to appreciate the exquisite natural beauty of the area is to hike from the base of the mountain. Up to 1500 feet, the gentle slopes are covered with farmland and countryside, much of which is dotted with small villages, but as you trek further up the mountain, this soon gives way to dense tropical rainforest which hosts an abundance of endemic wildlife. Although the peak is cloaked by cloud forest, a hike to the summit will reward you with outstanding views of the island and Caribbean Sea, and as many as six neighbouring islands (including Nevis) can be seen offshore on a clear day. This will certainly be one of the highlights of your holiday in St Kitts.
As you explore the island further, your informative tour guide will reveal many other natural wonders besides Mount Liamuiga. From the breathtaking, untouched Southeast Peninsula, with its beautiful, palm-fringed beaches and crystal clear waters, to vast sugar plantations, lush botanical gardens, National Parks and dramatic volcanic peaks, the splendour of St Kitts will unfold before your very eyes. This enchanting adventure in paradise will both captivate and inspire you.
