Great ideas for an active Cape Verde Holiday

Holidays don’t get any better than this!  

Unleash the explorer in you; leave the all-inclusive accommodation on Sal behind and fly to Santiago for some culture and gentle strolls around the bustling capital Praia, and the oldest settlement of the archipelago – Cidade Velha. Listen to your English-speaking guide as he tells you about the fort, Rua Banana, the Nossa Senhora do Rosario church and the Pelourinho (pillory).

Then fly to Fogo.  Picture yourself staying in an enormous crater, in a Casa which has been re-built on hot lava after the big volcano, which you will see when you fly to the island, erupted two years ago. Imagine walking the streets of peaceful Sao Filipe with its colourful buildings, sipping delicious Fogo wine, and watching the sun go down over neighbouring island Brava.

On the island of Sao Vicente, you’ll be surrounded by music during your stay in cultural city, Mindelo. Accompanied by your guide, you’ll discover this interesting city on foot and finish the tour at a guitar makers workshop. We believe in venturing off the beaten track with our Cape Verde holidays, and the following day an exhilarating off road Jeep tour will take you into the desert and to deserted black beaches. In the evening, visit one of the many venues where local musicians sing and play traditional Cape Verdean music.

A one hour ferry crossing takes you to the fifth island, Santo Antao.  Here you’ll be surrounded by the most amazing scenery of jagged mountain ridges, verdant valleys and ribeiras, and the dramatic Atlantic coast. You’ll drive on some of the archipelago’s most spectacular roads and, of course, you’ll have plenty of photo stops to record your memories.

At the end of your island-hopping trip, you’ll return to Sal where one more adventurous trip awaits you: a sailing trip along the south coast, with some snorkelling and dolphin and turtle watching. Or, if you wish, some time relaxing on the white sandy beaches

Think how satisfied you’ll feel on your flight home, knowing that no one but you on the plane has seen the real Cape Verde! That your tan was from those walks in the mountains and interesting strolls with your guide. We want you to be enlightened with our Cape Verde holidays and discover with us the Best of Cape Verde.
