Welcome to the largest and most diverse island of Cape Verde. The island offers many insider tours to get to know the culture and country better. Impressive mountain ranges, fine sandy beaches, an impressive volcanic plateau, deep erosion gorges, fertile valleys, coconut palm plantations, oases, extensive mountain forests, old traditions such as Batuk, Tabanka and the capital Praia, the political and economic center of Cape Verde with the old Colonial-style city center.
It all started on Santiago. The Portuguese explorers founded Ribeira Grande, today's Cidade Velha, the first city in the tropics and former slave transshipment point.
The country's capital Praia is located in the southeast of the island. The administrative and economic center is now a modern city whose population is constantly increasing. The historic center of the city (and probably the most beautiful part Praia) is the Plato. The city beach of Kebra Kanela is a great place to swim and relax and escape the heat of the city.
You can start various tours from Praia and add a beach holiday in the north of the island in Tarrafal. On Wednesdays and Saturdays it is worth making a stop in Assomada and visiting the largest and most colorful market of Santiago. The scenic diversity of the island is unique. But without a guide and information, you can quickly get lost! On our tours you will get in touch with the local people, learn more about the cultures and enjoy the beautiful nature.
