Embark on a Thrilling Adventure to Conquer São Tomé Island's Highest Summit

Are you seeking a challenge that pushes your limits and rewards you with breathtaking vistas? Then consider ascending to the pinnacle of São Tomé Island, where adventure and awe await. Spending a night at the base camp, this two-day trek culminates in an extraordinary view from the 2024-meter-high Peak of São Tomé, at the heart of the National Obô Park.

Be prepared for a demanding journey, navigating through narrow, rugged paths that often involve climbing over tree roots and navigating steep ascents and descents. Mental fortitude, sturdy footwear, and a trusty raincoat are your allies for this endeavor.

We strongly recommend a two-day trek, including an overnight stay at the Peak base. On the second day, rise early to scale the summit, capturing an unforgettable sunrise and an expansive panoramic view that will etch itself into your memory.

For those seeking an exhilarating challenge that marries physical exertion with unparalleled natural beauty, this trek is tailor-made for you. Conquer São Tomé Island's highest peak and unlock the splendor of this unspoiled paradise.
