Written By Ramiro Neto

GROUP TRAVEL
The hospitality of the Sao Tome people awaits you in a small archipelago with much to discover. Paradisiacal beaches of clear water, splendid vegetation and a unique fauna mirror the natural beauty of this region. The Portuguese colonial heritage remains well represented in the local architecture and mountain fields. Locally produced coffee and cocoa aromas add even more charm to this route,

Climbing Papagaio Peak

The Pico Papagaio is an emblematic peak of Príncipe Island. Visible from the capital, its altitude is aproximately 700 meters and has volcanic origins. Surrounded by secondary and primary forest, it is located inside the Príncipe Natural Park. Along the trail to the summit, many birds, monkeys, orquids, and medicinal plants can be observed.

The peak has only occasionally been explored. The first expedition dated back to 1929. A second trip was made in 1956, but could not make a serious botanical inventory due to poor weather. The 1999 trip found that the mountain rises from a heavily forested plateau with elevation 600 to 700 metres (2,000 to 2,300 ft).

Views of the island are spectacular!
