If you want to get to know Cape Verde in its essence, this is one of the trips you should choose!
Made up of volcanic islands, this archipelago is full of hidden paradises, cultures and morabeza, which is nothing more than the hospitality that the Cape Verdean people will offer you.
Santiago and Fogo were the islands chosen for this group trip and you won’t be able to stay indifferent to this adventure! Join us and find all the details below!
7 – 12 people
Arrival in the city of Praia
We'll start on the island of Santiago. We will be met at Praia airport by the person who will accompany us to the hotel. We'll be able to enjoy the company of the group, get to know each other a little better and take a walk around the neighborhood!
Capital and its markets
On this day, after breakfast, we will leave with our guide for a guided tour of the capital of Cape Verde. We'll get to know the markets and start to get into the culture. Another point of interest will also be Cape Verde's oldest city, a World Heritage Site. We can relax in the remaining time and enjoy the beach.
Tarrafal and Assomada
It will be a day full of sightseeing. After breakfast, we'll set off towards the Assomada African Market, visit an iconic church and see the famous Serra da Malagueta. We will continue our visit to see the Tarrafal concentration camp and end our day at Tarrafal Beach. At the end of the day, we return to Praia where we will spend the night.
Living in the countryside
It will be a different day. Get ready to visit the rural part of the island where you'll spend a few hours with the locals. We'll visit the largest babana and coconut plantation, explore the Santa Cruz valley and, at the end, have an incredible gastronomic experience with a local family!
After breakfast, we will take the flight to Fogo Island. The famous volcano island! On this day, we'll visit the city center of San Filipe and take the opportunity to explore the surrounding area!
Chã das Caldeiras
Today we'll have a different landscape! Gray and black will prevail. The volcanic features will not go unnoticed. We'll walk through vine, apple and pomegranate plantations around the volcano where Cape Verde's last eruption took place in 2015. This will be followed by a tasting and a workshop on the different wines of Fogo Island.
Back to Santiago
We'll head back to Santiago where we can enjoy the beaches or go to the markets to buy that souvenir that never fails! We'll enjoy our last moments together and have our farewell dinner!
Our visit to these two magnificent islands is over! We're now reflecting on all the experiences we've had and already thinking about the next trip!
What kind of accommodation am I staying in on this trip?

We use twin or double rooms (on request).

Does Triskelion Expeditions handle the flights?
Yes, although we don’t include the cost of flights in the trip, we can also take care of them if you wish. All you have to do is tell us when you book.
We send you a quote with the price of the flights at the time and then you decide whether to buy with Triskelion, on your own or with another agency.
Are arrival and departure transfers included?

The meeting with the leader takes place at the destination airport.
If I enrol alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?
It is not compulsory, as we will group together those who sign up for a double room with a twin bed (where possible), by sex and order of registration, travellers who sign up for the trip alone. If the number of travellers is odd, the participant who is left alone will have to pay the respective single supplement.
If you want to stay in a single room, then you will have to pay the single supplement.
