Ramblers Walking Holidays

Guided Walking Holiday around ‘Undiscovered’ Cape Verde

Press Release   •   Aug 06, 2015 12:31 BST

Ramblers Worldwide Holidays – the experts in guided walking adventures across the globe are offering a two week holiday to the unspoilt Cape Verde islands lying off the West Coast of Africa. These islands are volcanic in origin and offer a fascinating blend of African and Portuguese history.

This two week, five centre tour concentrates on the geologically younger, more rugged islands where there is superb walking and where the way of life is virtually untouched by the outside world.

Cape Verde has long been a secret waiting to be discovered and much of the beautiful landscape has yet to be seen by travellers.

The tour embraces São Vicente (2 nights), giving time to explore the intriguing city of Mindelo; before catching the ferry to Ponta do Sol, Santo Antão (5 nights) - brimful of ancient cobbled pathways; Cidade Velha, Santiago (2 nights) – the oldest colonial city and now a World heritage site; São Domingos, Santiago (2 nights) and Cidade de Tarrafal, Santiago (2 nights).

Price from £2,175 per person includes return flights, transfers, half board accommodation and the services of a dedicated tour leader. Departs 31 October 2015.
