What a way to spend the day we start our hike at 8 am with a guide named Gaylee. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. My wife and I are moderately fit and Gaylee was courteous and patient as you will need a...More

Incredible! We had to crawl up on some parts it's not all just walking. The tropical vines that you have to cling to makes it fun. The tropical foliage is beautiful! For the first 500 feet up there are these tiny spiders that build webs...More

Stunning island and we'll worth the hike to see the view over not only Nevis but St Kitts as well. Second highest mountain in the Caribbean

I can only speak to the trip we went on, but this is NOT a leisurely hike. I am in decent shape and this thing kicked my butt. Over 2 miles up and the majority is hand over hand pulling yourself up rock inclines and...More

There are several different styles of hikes, one to the top and several others that are geared towards less climbing and more just hiking. We did the Nevis Peak hike/climb and it was challenging but doable if you are at all fit. Get a good...More

We decided that we couldn't visit Nevis without climbing to the top of Nevis Peak (3232ft). We left the hotel at 7 am and after a short taxi ride we met our guide Gailey who guided us up the peak. It was a challenging hike/climb...More
