Le Ponant: Cape Verde Islands

Praia, Cape Verde to Praia, Cape Verde
November 21 - 28, 2015 
8 days / 7 nights on board

  • At the crossroads of three continents, Europe, Africa and South America, the Cape Verde islands are proud of their mixed race heritage, a blend of cultures that makes them truly unique. Far from the main maritime routes and major tourist destinations, Cape Verde offers its authenticity and its traditions, a region with a thousand faces and a thousand landscapes.
  • Free excursions
  • At the heart of the Cape Verde Islands, Santo Antao, also known as one of the Barlavento or Windward Islands, is of volcanic origin. This has resulted in a landscape of deep, green valleys and steep summits.
  • We invite you discover the two contrasting sides to this surprising island: the unmissable north first, where you can hike from the altitude forest to the luxuriant Paul valley, via the impressive coastal path leading to Ponta do Sol... Next, you will visit the wild west of the island, with its remote tiny villages and encounter the fishing community.
