Itinerary

Day 1

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!

Day 2

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.

Day 3

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.

Day 4

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!

Day 5

Fogo Island

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!

Day 6

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.

Day 7

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!

Day 8

Returning home

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!

Frequent Questions

What kind of accommodation am I staying in on this trip?

The accommodations on this trip are standard hotels

We use twin or double rooms (on request).

If you want a single room, you will have to pay a supplement.

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?

That’s right, transfers are included in the price of the trip.

There is one flight on the trip that is recommended for the group to arrive at the same time, so transfers are available according to the arrival time of this flight. If you opt for flights with a different arrival time, these are no longer included (in which case there is no refund of the transfer fee).

Where do I meet the leader?

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.

What documentation do I need to make this journey?

For this trip you will need to carry a passport valid for at least six months after the date of departure from the country.

It is also necessary to pay the TSU, which costs approximately 35$.

Can I arrive before and leave after the group?

Yes, if you want to arrive in Praia before the group and leave after the end of the group trip, you can.

In that case, if you wish, we can book the accommodation for you, or you can choose to buy it without Triskelion Expeditions.

How are meals not included?

Meals that are not included can be taken as a group, in places recommended by the leader or local guides, or you can prefer to eat somewhere else that suits you better, with other people or on your own.

How can I pay for this trip?

A minimum payment of 35 per cent of the cost of the trip is required to confirm the booking.

The remaining amount must be paid at least 45 days before the start date of the trip.

The remaining value of the trip can be paid in instalments up to 45 days before the beginning of the trip.

There is no refund of the amount paid at the time of booking, after confirmation of the trip.

Can I cancel the trip?

You can cancel your trip up until the day we confirm it by email.

If you want to cancel the trip after it has been confirmed, you will incur costs that we have already paid for services to be used on the trip.
