    Mount Liamuiga
    Stop: 8 hours
    A visit to a dormant volcano is surely one of the most spectacular trips to make in St. Kitts. You will be picked up at 8:00 am and will have approximately a one-hour drive by 4X4 vehicle to the base of Mount Liamuiga. You will then begin a 2.5 hours vigorous hike up the mountain and through the rain forest, observing giant forest trees, beautiful flowers and swinging vines. As you ascend you will notice the changes in vegetation, temperature drop and definitely a little winded as you hike this volcano which stands at 3792ft. The tour includes rest stops, where you will have a chance to learn about the different plants and animal life on the island. Your tour guide will set up a light snack at the top. The walk back down to the trail base, where the vehicle is parked is normally faster (2 hours approximately) than the ascent. Refreshments will be provided prior to departing back to your hotel or cruise port. This tour is an exciting adventure and a strenuous hike. Only for those who are extremely fit and in good physical condition. You must wear running shoes with durable soles, long pants and be prepared to get dirty. (Level 1-5) 5* A day trip you will not forget!

14 of us hiked up the volcano and had a great afternoon. 4 adults and 10 adult children really enjoyed the rainforest.
I’ve hiked a number of times and this would be a more challenging of my hikes. A couple of spots I relied on our guide to help me up and Over boulders. I was super concerned on the way up about how to get down safely. The hike up took us about 2.5 hours. The top view was a a highlight for me. Seeing such greenery looking down to water in the Center of the crater. The hike down was actually just slippery and I went down on my bum most of the way safely. I shouldn’t have worried so much on the way up and I would have enjoyed even more.
I would absolutely have done this hike if I knew how challenging it would be but I won’t jump at the opportunity to do it again.
Great day for all of us.
One caution... I would not do this hike as a cruise excursion because it is too rushed with the time restraint. We took all the time we wanted as we were staying on St Kitts

My daughter (26) wanted to climb the volcano. I took a book because I wasn't sure I could make it after all the admonitions of how strenuous it was. I was ready to stop near half way, but O'Neil (The Dragon!) encouraged me. I made it. He was patient with my need for stops, and he had a vast repertoire of stories. He knew every plant and tree. I obviously only did the climb once, but I can't imagine a better guide. I highly recommend him. But I'd make sure I was in better shape before I tackled it again. For reference, I'm a 53 year old, not really in shape, desk job guy with questionable knees. If you're reasonably active, it probably wouldn't be a problem for you. It was definitely beautiful.

We hiked Mt. Liamuiga with O’Neil’s Tours (booked through the Marriott). The hike up was fun and moderately strenuous. O’Neil was an outstanding guide - he explained much about the local vegetation on the hike, and was very patient with our group. We had a couple of hikers who were struggling, and O’Neil added breaks to allow them to keep up. Everyone in our group of five made it to the top, and was able to experience the view, looking down into the crater of the dormant volcano. We had an uneventful trip back down, including a couple of quick, refreshing rain showers. Highly recommend the volcano hike if you’re in reasonably good shape and looking for a challenging hike. O’Neil is a great guide who has been making the trek for nearly 40 years.

If you are not a good mountain hiker, DO NOT take the Volcano Crater Hiking Tour! We are still sore 3 days after.
The tour operated by Tropical Tours is basically one guy and his son, picking you up in a run down rusty open 4X4 and driving you at crazy speed thru the potholes all the way to the other end of the island to a mountain trail. There, you get to hike for ... 3 miles up and 3 miles down thru a not very friendly rain forest environment.
They sell the tour as a nice 2.5 hour hike with lots of stops and a picnic. They say wear proper clothing including sports shoes. Two people showed up in fip-flops and they were not turned around, they were accepted to come. One lady ended up barefoot soon after we left, due to her flip flop disintegrating almost immediately. The guide did not turned her around, he "fixed" her flip-fop with some tree bark instead. None of us made it to the crater, all we saw was forest and all we experienced was misery. Once we said we want to go back, the guide turned us around, we came down the mountain and he drove us to the hotel. No picnic. This tour was $95 per person and ruined our whole trip to St Kitts. One person in our group came very close to a heart attack, had to stop and sit down wheezing and panting. If he had a heart attack on that mountain, probably he would have died as it is a very remote and hard to reach area. The tour operator had given us no warning about health conditions incompatible with the tour, about the REAL length of the trail and about how long it will take us to get up and down that mountain. Even when asked during the trip, the guide would not tell us how long we still have till we get up there. It was overall a very very bad experience and an activity that put in real life threatening danger one of the tour guests. We want a refund.

Our tour started at 700ft. The hiking trail is clearly marked. The trail has numerous obstacles-tree roots and rocks that you will encounter, and have to master to advance to the next level. The trail is covered, so your sun exposure is minimal. There are six rest stops along the way. At each rest stop the tour guide will provide a lesson in the history of Mount Liamuiga, and the natural vegetation that thrives along the path. Recommend you bring snacks, water, wet wipes, and a first aid kit. Bug spray is an option, but not necessary. We were told that if you apply bug spray, it will have an opposite affect-attracts bugs. You must be physically fit or an experienced hiker to negotiate this hiking trail all the up to its peak at the 2800ft level. Most hikers do not make it to the top. The trail is safe and free from aggressive wild animals and reptiles. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy!
