Buckie Got It Hike
Get ready to experience the hike of a lifetime of the highest peak in St. Kitts. The hike to Mt. Liamuiga Volcano is challenging, spectacular, and unforgettable. Mt. Liamuiga lies 3,792 ft above sea level, making it the highest point in the entire Leeward Islands chain archipelago. The hiking trail winds through the rainforest, over, around, and through rock formations of various shapes and sizes, bypassing exposed tree roots as large as a man’s torso.

Journey to the historic village of St. Pauls via an open Safari Truck and journey along the trail in the dense tropical forest . The views are outstanding; including the entire island and the beautiful Caribbean Sea, as well as the neighboring islands of Saba, Statia, St. Barths, St. Martin, Antigua, and our sister island Nevis. Various rest stops are made along the way.
