  • Hiking

Hike a shaded trail through the rainforest and visit a family-owned farm that grows leafy greens using a hydroponic system that is more eco-friendly than growing crops in soil. You will get an inkling of the island’s beauty while driving to the rainforest, as you will follow a winding coastal route along the Caribbean Sea. The hike will provide an even closer view of St. Kitts’ natural attractions because you will be enveloped in the rainforest. The heritage trail begins and ends at the ruins of Wingfield Estate, a 17th-century sugar plantation with a rare mill that was water-powered. Water is also key to Montraville Farms, where you will discover how produce is hydroponically grown in climate-controlled greenhouses. When compared to traditional farming, hydroponics is more water efficient, takes up less space and eliminates the need for weed and pest control. You will have the chance to taste some of the farm-fresh vegetables and juices.


HIGHLIGHTS
• Hike through a rainforest that borders a 17th-century sugar plantation. • Visit a farm that grows leafy greens hydroponically in an eco-friendly way. • Sample farm-fresh produce such as Swiss chard, kale and spinach-like callaloo.
