Enjoy one of the most beautiful train rides in the world when you hop aboard Saint Kitts Scenic Railway. Hugging the north-eastern coastline, you’ll experience spectacular views of sugarcanes to the volcanic cone of Mount Liamuiga rising above you. Combined with a sightseeing bus, this experience allows you to view the entire island in a couple of hours.
As you circumnavigate Saint Kitts on board its famous sugar train, learn how this railway was originally built in the 1920s to deliver cane from the fields to the mills. Today, the last railway in the West Indies now provides a fascinating way for you to see the island. During the two-hour ride, on both the train and bus, sit back and enjoy breath-taking views of the ocean and lush vegetation. Your tour conductor will point out the sights as the train passes old sugarcane estates with abandoned windmills and chimneys. The narrow-gauge train and bus takes you on a 30-mile circle of this beautiful Eastern Caribbean island.
The fun double-decker railcars feature an upper open-air observation platform that puts you high above the sugarcanes. The perfect spot to capture the essence of this colourful country. The lower air-conditioned parlour has 1.8-metre vaulted windows and is furnished with cushioned rattan chairs at inlaid tables. There is a service bar and complimentary drinks ranging from traditional rum punch to soft drinks which are served throughout this memorable trip.
