Scenic railway - St. Kitts & Nevis

Scenic railway - St. Kitts & Nevis

Completed in 1926, this narrow-gauge railway was originally used to transport sugar cane from the island’s plantations to a processing factory located in Basseterre. When the sugar industry was mothballed, the line was converted into a scenic railway.

Tours begin in Basseterre and take approximately three hours, covering 18 miles by rail and 12 miles by bus. The picturesque route circumnavigates the island and takes in most of the island’s sites, including Brimstone Hill, Mount Liamuiga and some of the larger sugarcane estates.
