About your walking trip in Cape Verde
Your Cape Verde walking holiday: In recent years, the Cape Verde archipelago has made a place for itself in the world of hiking. Not only for the beauty and variety of its islands but also for the friendliness of its population. The Cape Verde Islands are the meeting point between America, Portugal and Africa. They are the result of a unique crossbreeding that has given birth to incredibly open and warm-hearted people.
For this first approach to Cape Verde, we have chosen to combine the islands of Sao Vicente and Santa Antao. Two neighbouring islands, and yet so different. Sao Vicente is home to the cultural capital Mindelo, also known as the "little Brazil" for its bewitching carnival and lively nightlife. Opposite, an hour's boat ride away, is the imposing Santo Antao with its lush, lunar valleys, tropical culture and volcanic ridges. Here, walking is often the only way for the inhabitants to get from one village to another, thus, a whole network of paths has been developed over the centuries to the delight of hikers.
If you like to hike far from the crowds, in unspoiled landscapes while discovering a rich and fascinating culture, then this self-guided Cape Verde walking holiday is for you!
