Walking & Hiking


Fogo, Santa Antao, and Sao Nicolao are the most popular islands for hiking. There are numerous trails in Santa Antao, and the island is fairly well set-up for hiking, with recognised trails. There is transport that can take you to the beginning of the trail and collect you from the end. The views can be spectacular, you will need  a head for heights. For those that are fit, you can climb with guides to the top of the volcano in Fogo and then “ski” down on the black lava. In Sao Nicolao, many walkers walk around Monte Gordo, which can be very cold so pack extra clothes. This is in the green part of the island, and there can be mist over the mountain.
The hiking on these islands is breathtaking ideal destination for a healthy vacation.
