Your Itinerary in Brief

Take a dreamy island-hopping tour to three luscious islands in the Cape Verde archipelago: Santiago, São Vicente and Santo Antão. Home to a unique diversity of spectacular landscapes that rise and fall above the rugged coast, these three islands meet the Atlantic Ocean on beautiful, white sand beaches.

Santiago's deep roots in African tradition offers visitors a vibrant mix of history and culture. Santo Antão's fertile valleys, verdant banana plantations, and sugar cane fields make it a hiker's paradise cut with winding trails and pathways climbing up towards rich green peaks. São Vicente is known as the little Brazil of the African coast, and is renowned for its lively music and nightlife.
