You will experience the best of the islands of São Nicolau, São Vicente and Santo Antão on our Highlights of Cape Verde’s Northern islands trip.
These northern (windward) islands are excellent walking destinations and if you’re a keen hiker, then this unique walking holiday is definitely for you.
Visiting these barlavento isles you will soon discover how quiet and sophisticated São Nicolau is, with its outstanding walks in Monte Gordo National Park, as compared to lively and cultured Sao Vicente where you climb volcanoes in desert-like conditions, and then end up walking through the almost tropical, green and fertile valleys of Santo Antão, with its remote villages. You couldn’t wish for a more diverse walking trip.
