Explore the captivating landscapes of São Vicente, where beautiful beaches and ancient volcanoes await. We will begin the journey by strolling through the cosmopolitan capital of Mindelo, taking in its lively atmosphere.

The path leads from cottage to cottage, crossing vegetable crops (cabbage, tomato, corn, yam, beans ) and tropical fruits or grains (banana, guava, sugar cane, coffee …). You will not only learn something about agriculture and botany on this hike, but as well meet the friendly locals and learn about their culture and the local rural life. Overnight in Porto Novo.
