Description

Depart Port Zante, Basseterre or your Hotel lobby with your experienced tour guide for about one [1] hour drive to the Parish of St Paul’s. We will journey about sixteen [16] miles from the city of Basseterre onto the west coastline heading to the furthest point in the north.

The city of Basseterre bustles with activity as boats dock and depart with passengers travelling to and from the sister island of Nevis, friendly citizens’ smile and the sound of string band music or calypso permeates the breezy atmosphere.

The island’s colourful architecture is characteristically Caribbean. The central roundabout is the Berkeley Memorial, which is originally built in the style of Piccadilly Circus in London. The green and yellow structure has clock on four sides with a built in fountain and stands in the middle of restaurants, commercial banks and the National Museum. You will view the St. George Anglican Church built by the Jesuits in 1670 and The War Memorial, a Cenotaph built to honour those who fought in the world wars.

Be sure to capture the Island’s lush vegetation, verdant mountains and turquoise Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.

The tour will pass through the village of Middle Island, the oldest Anglican Church and Brimstone Hill Fortress. At the village of St. Paul’s the tour will drive through Belmont Estate to the parking area which is about 1200 feet above sea level.

A thorough overview of the flora and fauna would be shared with the guests. The rainforest provides a canopy against the rain. It is fairly easy to start with no more than your average trek but the last quarter takes half time as you go up and over and hopscotch over roots and rocks.

Guests need to be reasonable fit as the last quarter requires “head for height and a bit of never” as you can go out on a ledge or two to captivate the best picturesque views.

The volcano stands at 3792 ft and is the highest point on the island. On the top of central forest reserve the Volcano rim is 2800 feet above sea. At the high mountain which takes about 2 to 2 ½ hours hiking upwards, lies cloaked in a dwarfed cloud forest and overlooks what is often referred to as “Giants Salad Bowl.”

Sugar City, St Kitts’ volcano crater is one thousand [1000] feet deep and almost one mile wide.

On top the volcano crater rim you will enjoy a delicious picnic lunch while rejuvenating amidst the dwarfed cloud forest from where there are spectacular views over our “quilted” coastline below, with nearby offshore islands on one side and the other is the giant volcano crater 1000 feet to its floor.

On returning to the transportation at the foot of the mountain we will celebrate the end of our challenging hike with cool refreshments compliment of the tour.
