For the nature lover, Tobago has a little of everything and its natural resources is like a goldmine waiting to unveil. Island Hikers will be visiting Tobago from Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th September 2015 to explore its hidden trees.

Day 1:

Twin Rivers Waterfall Thursday 24th September’2015

The Twin Rivers Fall located in Goldsborough is a tributary of the Great River or Goldsborough River. At the gateway to the falls there is a conflux of two tributaries, which gives it the name Twin Rivers. The falls found on the right stream descends 75 feet from a series of cascades. At the base, there is a large plunge pool and the walk along the stony riverbed will take 40 minutes from where the vehicles parked. It is a challenge to climb to the top of the falls but along its course there are additional waterfalls and pools to discover. Further downstream situated on another tributary is the Rainbow Waterfall where there is an admission charge to visit.

Little Tobago also known as “Bird of Paradise Island” is the largest and most easterly landmass off the coast of Trinidad and Tobago. Located opposite to the village of Speyside, the island surrounded by beautiful reefs is a fantastic place for bird watching and scuba diving. The highest elevation is 137metres (450ft) and to trek the entire 14.5 km of trails can take 1-6 hours. In 1928, Little Tobago designated as a wildlife sanctuary to protect the Bird of Paradise, however over the years they have all vanished. Still living on the island is a wide variety of exotic birds including the Red-billed Tropicbird. A glass bottom boat will take the group on a tour to see the reef where situated is the largest Brain Coral. The Speyside Lookout is a magnificent place for sceneries of Little Tobago, Man-of-War Hill 2nd highest peak (549m) and Pigeon Peak 4th tallest.
