Nevis Rainforest Hiking Excursion Reviews

Navigate through Nevis' unspoiled rainforest on an invigorating hike. You may even get to see one of the three waterfalls!
I had a great time but it was challenging made more so by rain.
I had a great time but it was challenging made more so by rain. A few people fell in the rain. Not for anyone with mobility issues.

We had tried years ago to hike to the top of Mount Nevis during a day trip from St. Kitts, and were unable because the trail kept crossing locked gates and No Trespassing signs. We were told by our hotel that to make it to the top, one must have a guide who knows not only the trails but the property owners. We booked the guided (three guides!) "Source Trail" hike, advertised as "moderately strenuous" while on the Seadream II.It turned out that a) moderately strenuous is a euphemism for "walk that anybody not confined to wheelchair and oxygen tent can do without breaking a sweat," b) this was exactly the same walk we'd done on our own five years ago (i.e. it did not go to the top of the mountain, and no guide needed in any case), c) the sole contribution by the guides was to show the hikers pictures in a picture book of what used to be there, and d) we did not even get to the top of the path as it had been washed out and we had to turn around early--and the guides knew this and withheld this information. Moderately okay leisurely walk, no need to pay for it, much better to specifically hire a guide to take you to the top of the mountain (for which, everyone agrees, you DO have to be in reasonably good shape) assuming your cruise stop provides enough time.
