      • Hafen : Mindelo
      • Dauer : 4h45

      From the pier, board your coach and drive to the interior of the 88 square miles (227 km²) small island. Water is very rare so Sao Vicente's landscape is sparse. The island seduces with the Atlantic’s rough beaches and a charming colourful town known as the cultural capital of the country.

      Driving up the windy roads to the top of the highest mountain Monte Verde, you will appreciate the diverse colours that all these rocks and stones on the island can offer.

      From the top, it is possible to oversee most parts of the island: the city of Mindelo, long yellow sandy beaches glued to black volcanic rocks and the “Baia das Gatas” Bay with its turquoise water, very famous for its yearly music festival bringing great parts of the country together.

      • Dauer : 4h00

      Welcome to the biggest and most African island of the Cape Verde islands. Dive into the new capital of Praia and discover the contrast of history, complimented with a modern atmosphere.

      After a walking tour on the historical centre of Praia, you will embark on your coach for a scenic drive to the UNESCO World Heritage of “Cidade Velha”, 30-minute drive, the original capital of the islands and the hub of the slave trade.

      Ribeira Grande, which is today known as Cidade Velha (“old city”), is the oldest settlement in the Cape Verde Islands and was the first European city in the tropics. The settlement was founded in 1462 by Antonio de Noli and prospered due to its importance at the centre of the slave trade. It became a city in 1572 and had a cathedral, which was (belatedly) completed in 1693. The great explorers Christopher Colombus and Vasco de Gama both stopped here during voyages, Christopher Colombus during his third voyage to the Americas in 1498 and Vasco de Gama on his way to India in 1497.

      Visit the ruined Real do Sao Filipe Fort which overlooks the town. It was built in 1590 to protect Ribeira Grande following a devastating attack by Francis Drake. This defence proved to be inadequate and in 1712 the city was sacked by French Pirate, Jacques Cassart.

      In Cidade Velha, you can still discover the remnants of the first Portuguese settlers, visit its Cathedral, the Rua Banana and Pelourinho, the 16th century pillory. Just off the quaint cobblestone street, enjoy a drink while a traditional Batuco dancing group enchants you with the beat of drums. Having tasted the soul of this island you will make your way back to the Praia port and your ship.

      Start your hiking tour by descending approximately 200 metres (650 feet) to the bottom of the crater. On your way down, you will enter a different world where the air, the noises, the flora and life itself have their own rhythm.

       

      Once in the depths of the crater, you will be completely surrounded by the slopes of the volcano. The isolation has led to the presence of numerous endemic plants, which gives this trail a special touch. “La Dama de Bandama” (Lady of Bandama) is one of the rare plants that can be seen only in this volcano. On the bottom of this approximately 2000-year-old crater, you have a sensation of isolation, of peace and calm.

       

      After your hiking tour, you will join a winery to taste local wine and enjoy a picnic snack.
