Step aboard the first scenic railway tour in the Caribbean! You will be taken on a 3-hour tour along the 30-mile (48 km) rail circuit on the Eastern Caribbean island of St. Kitts. The luxurious railcar features an open-air observation deck on the upper level, with air-conditioned comfort and expansive vaulted windows on the lower level. While you ride, listen to a narration of the history of the Caribbean, and conclude the train ride with a 12-mile (19 km) sightseeing bus tour of St. Kitts’ attractions and landmarks.Description
Your luxurious railcar features a service bar, restroom and colorful artwork on the walls. The upper level has an open-air observation deck with breathtaking views of the majestic mountain ranges and lush sugar cane fields, and the lower level offers air-conditioned comfort and expansive vaulted windows. Take advantage of the complimentary specialty drinks served throughout the trip.
See fields of sugar canes surrounding the railcar as the railway winds around the slopes of the remnant volcano Mt. Liamuiga. Discover the hidden black sand beach and overgrown plantation estates, and cross steel bridges, including one stretching 300 feet (90 meters) across a deep ravine. You will also pass many villages including the Mansion Village and Saddlers Village, surrounded by fields producing a range of fruit.
The colorful narration of the history of Caribbean and St. Kitts includes tales of the “Last Railway in the West Indies,” which was used to transport sugar cane from the island’s sugar plantations to the sugar factory in Basseterre, St. Kitts capital city. You will also be entertained with folk songs and hymns by the St. Kitts Railway Choir.
At the end of your train ride, transfer to a sightseeing bus to continue your 12-mile (19 km) journey along Island Main Road. The route passes under Brimstone Hill Fortress and through small villages and towns before returning to Basseterre.Please note:
