The hike half of the way is safe for most, but there are 3 hills that have to be navigated before getting to the top/destination that are boarder-line dangerous for the unfit. The walkways are narrow and on very steep drop-offs. Especially after a rain, the ground and rocks are incredibly slick. At the top, in order to see the... More

We negotiated a fair price with Royston, aka "Mikey", and... More

We visited St. Kitts as part of our cruise experience. We booked this excursion directly with O'Neil, and his son Al. Al, lead our group. $90 each. He picked us up from the cruise port, drove us to the volcano base, provided food and drinks and walking sticks and a plethora of information while we hiked to the top. You... More

Did this hike with our family, including 2 teens, as part of a cruise ship tour. This is very strenuous, with some technical portions of the hike requiring scrambling over rocks, roots, mud. Warm and humid, but it does get cooler as you ascend. No mosquitoes, asked the guide and he said too dry and cool for them. Won't really... More

Took a tour here for a day trip in St. Kitts from the local port from a cruise. My boyfriend and I went, with a group of about 20-30 people. The tour guides drove us about 30 minutes to the location, which just looks like a mountain because the volcano has obviously not been active recently. The tropical environment is... More

We booked the hike through our cruise. The description was strenuous and they weren't kidding. Narrow parts and often slippery. The tour we booked through provided hiking sticks which were so helpful. Stunning areas along the hike - the summit is small but the view was beautiful. No area to walk around at the summit.

Got to see this amazing view from Brimstone Hill Fortress. Wish we had time to hike it and descend into the volcano as there are guided hikes available. But we had only one day from cruise ship to explore. Understand it would be a long day hike. Maybe next time. Go for it.

We wanted to go on our own pace so we found a driver (Dr. Elvis - you can ask around), and he arranged for us Kalvin - a local guy who knows every spot on the mountain. Was great. Took us close to 2 hours up (at the end we had to wait behind a cruise tour group). While up... More

Strenuous hike scrambling through a rain forest with stupendous views the top. Very helpful to have a guide: O'Neil Mulraine is a fantastic guide. You need to be fit for this; wear proper footwear (at the least, good athletic shoes) and take water and snacks. O'Neil provided us with walking sticks, very much needed on this hike.
