Tour description provided by Viator

São Tomé & Principe make up Africa’s second smallest country. The nation consists of two islands, São Tomé & Principe located in the Gulf of Guinea. The islands are a result of volcanoes erupting out of the sea.This day tour begins from your specified location anywhere in São Tomé .
São Tomé, once a vibrant, bustling, epicenter for cocoa and coffee plantations, is also known for its alluring flora and unique fauna. Our day will include hot spots of the southern part of the island. This day tour includes a visit to Boca do Inferno, Roça São João dos Angolares, and Pico Cão Grande (the highest point of São Tomé Island).Boca do Inferno, Portuguese for "Hell's Mouth", is a major hit here on the island. It is a natural blowhole about a 30-minute drive south from the capital along the coast. This is one of many natural phenomena found in São Tomé. Hell's Mouth is a result of sea water that is built up and then forced up through the hole in the rock. The scene is quite a beautiful experience, and even more mind "blowing" because, again, this is a 100% natural occurrence. From Boca do Inferno; we will make our way to Roça São João dos Angolares. Our stop here will include some history and a tour of the now eco plantation. The house currently situated here is original and stunning. It has been completely restored to its original colonial-era look. The views around here do not fall short of spectacular either. You have the Bay of Santa Cruz on one side, and mountains on the other, covered in luscious, untouched, green forest. From one jaw dropping view to another, we will stop at Pico Cão Grande, Portuguese for "Great Dog Peak". Pico Cão Grande is the highest point of São Tomé Island. It is a famous view in São Tomé as it stands over 1000 feet taller than its surrounding terrain, and 2,175 feet above sea level. The needle looking landmark is created from the hardened magma of the volcano that once surrounded it. Unfortunately today, we do not have time to climb it, however, it has been done a few times. Not an easy trek to say the least!End of tour, you will be dropped back off to your hotel in São Tomé.
