St. Kitts Scenic Railway


Catch the sights aboard the upper level, open-air observation deck or the lower level, air-conditioned train car decorated in rattan furniture with Caribbean music and complimentary drinks welcoming you to the island. Using tracks originally used to transport sugar cane from the fields to the mills, the 30-mile, 3.5-hour excursion winds through low-lying fields to the elevated volcanic mountain ranges with panoramic views. Hold tight as you go over Canyon Bridge! The train departs from Needsmust Station in Basseterre, with arrangements often provided through island resorts. ($89 adults; $44.50 children 12 and under)
