Mount Liamuiga Volcano Hike & Grid-Work
May 29th, 2023
with Dr. Jere Rivera-Dugenio Ph.D.
Hiking Mount Liamuiga Volcano in St Kitts, will be a great physical, mental, and endurance experience.
The hike will take approximately 5-6 hours as it is a 3.8 mile vertical route. Mt. Liamuiga’s peak is 3,792’ tall at the highest point with an elevation gain of 2,000 feet. As the incline progresses there will be some steep terrain with lush rainforest, many trees with long roots, some very steep steps over small boulders, yet filled with monkeys, mongooses, butterflies, and birds.
In my research of what people have to say about this hike, everyone said it was tough and worth every moment as the vistas were breathtaking!
There will be light snacks with local fruit included on this adventure.
It’s strongly suggested to wear hiking boots or good cross training tennis shoes with good grip soles. Bring a small backpack for extra hydration, sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, lightweight and flexible pants to protect legs, and of course a great attitude.
For your consideration, a walking stick might be helpful to utilize throughout the trail. There will be some resting along the way up to hydrate and snack. The guide likes to keep the group together so we all need to keep close to the same pace.
Time: 8:00 AM-4:00 PM
Cost per person: $100
Meet in Marriot lobby for transport to Mount Liamuiga
