Cape Verde does not fail when it comes to dramatic landscapes. Explore Ilha do Fogo and no doubt, it will become the highlight of your trip thanks to its breathtaking views. The trekking opportunities are incredible too.
Cape Verde is truly a hiker’s paradise as it offers numerous hiking trails. São Vicente and Santo Antão are both fantastic places to go on a hike.
