hiking Program sample

- Day 1 Arrival on Santiago

Arrival on the international airport of Santiago and transfer to your accommodation in Praia.

- DAY 2 Green Valley of Ribeira Grande

With your local guide you will visit the colonial part of the city Praia. Afterwards transfer to Calabaceira and first hike. The hike leads us back into history - to Cidade Velha ( Old city ) - Cabo Verde's former capital and important centre of the slave trade. After a steep descend the hike leads us from the dry plain through the green valley of Ribeira Grande. In the past it was used like a big prison for slaves, but today it serves mainly to grow sugar cane, coconut palm trees and many fruits and vegetables. At the valley's way out we won't resist a little taster of the traditionally distilled grogue, the local rum. Afterwards transfer and overnight in Tarrafal.

- DAY 3 National Park Serra Malagueta

Today we will hike for several hours through the partially green landscape of Serra Malagueta. Along the way you will meet locals at their daily work - traditional corn stamping, laundry or working on the fields. We will pass rich and diverse plants mango trees and fields in terraces. In the afternoon transfer with beach stop to your accommodation.

Duration: 4,5 h walking time; altitude in hm +220m/-900m, level of difficulty: medium. Transfers, local guide and lunchbags included.

- DAY 5 Monte Velha - Cape Verde's biggest Forest

After breakfast, we will ascent through the misty forest and pass by a diverse cultivated landscape with banana-, papaya- and coffee farms - and here and then you will see some farmhouses.

- DAY 6 THE HIGHLIGHT - PICO GRANDE EARLY

In the morning you will start for the top of Pico Grande. You will need sure footedness and good shape for the four hour climb. But this tour for sure will remain unforgettable. You will pass small fumeroles and steep and deep ash fields while enjoying a spectacular view. When you reach the edge of the crater, you can rest while looking straight into the crater. The descend recompenses for all the effort: like deep snow skiing you will swingle down the soft ash fields. After a typical lunch at your accommodation, you’ll be transferrred to Säo Filipe.
