Having fun in the sun, eating and drinking at my favorite local spots with my favorite island people and grooving to endless soca basically sums up my island life. Take advantage of your island’s gems and live your best island life with me! My new series, Island Girl Chronicles will teach you how to just that.
My friends and I decided to try out an ATV Tour by 869 Tours for our next island adventure,
- Because it was my friend Raisa’s birthday (Happy birthday gurrrl!)
- It’s one of the most popular ATV tours in St.Kitts so of-course we had to see what the hype was about.
869 Tours is located in Old Road, a 15-20 minute drive from Basseterre. They offer a side by side ATV Adventure Tour. The two seater ATV was our choice, however one and four seater ATVs are also available. Helmets and goggles (I honestly thought I won’t need this but wait…) were given to ensure that we were safe and also a talk through about how the ATVs work. It was now time to begin our adventure!
The route allows you to see old sugar plantations, local farms, remote villages and historical sites such as the Brimstone Hill Fortress. It was pretty rocky for some parts of the tour but that made it even more fun! I teamed up with my friend Guevelle for this tour and I may or may have not nearly killed us a few times. Luckily, there were two tour guides that made sure that you never got lost (guilty) and was safe.
About this googles that I thought I would not need, I definitely needed them! The route is pretty dusty. I would suggest wearing long pants, closed toe shoes, ALOT of sunscreen and something to cover your hair because look at this.
Yes, a MESS.
Despite me bathing in dust, I really had an amazing time on this ATV Adventure Tour. It lasted for an hour and a half and I honestly wish it was longer! 869 Tours offers 2 and 3 hour tours as well which I’ll definitely try next time.
What do you think will be my next island adventure?
