Departure
9: 00 from Porto Novo harbour

Day 1 (Hike: 5 hours - level 3)
From Porto Novo where we meet our guide, we are driven along the old Road of the Rope up to a vast red stained plateau. We don't just notice the hospitality of the locals but also the beautiful and varied views from the top - and the great taste of the local goat cheese. Later, we trade the aridity of the plateaus for a green valley, and meet our host family for the night.

Day 2 (Hike: 4 hours - level 2-3)
After breakfast, we wander through two superb valleys. A few words of Cape Verdean Creole help us interact a little bit more with locals, along with our smiles - and if we compliment them on their national football team, we'll certainly weave closer links! We spend the night in the house of a host family - but it feels like home!

Day 3 (Hike: 6 hours - level 2-3)
Let us not miss a second of this wonderful day - we early birds start one of the most spectacular hikes of Cape Verde: the one along the coast. To our right: the base of steep, if not vertical cliffs; to our left: the endlessness of the Atlantic Ocean. Small paths used by shepherds lead us through exceptional landscapes, each curve revealing new surprises. At last, we reach the small city of Ponta do Sol (the point of the sun), where we'll spend the night in a small hotel.
