Trekking in Cape Verde
One of the most rewarding ways to explore the islands is by off-road vehicle and by foot. There are many established off-road and trekking routes throughout all of the islands which take in breathtaking landscapes.
Some of the best trekking is found on the islands of Sao Vicente, Santo Antao and Santa Luzia.
If you are visiting the islands and are interested in finding out more, one of our trusted partners is Cabo Verde Safari. Cabo Verde Safari are located on the island of São Vicente and operate throughout the islands of Sao Vicente, Santo Antão and Santa Luzia.
The organised treks use comfortable off-road vehicles to go deep inside the islands. Some trips involve a combination of off-road vehicle and further exploration using experienced guides.
São Vicente and Santo Antão are perfect for this type of activity which combine breathtaking volcanic landscapes, deserted areas with small typical villages to lush forests.
The uninhabited Santa Luzia is a nature reserve and has amazing white sandy beaches with crystal water. With no regular public transport to the island the beautiful landscapes can be explored in total tranquillity.
