Explore the diversity of Monte Txota Natural Park and the surrounding area on this trek. Climb Pico D'Antónia, the highest point of Santiago Island, and enjoy extraordinary views of almost all Santiago's cities and two more of Cape Verde's Islands.

Highlights

  • Trek through the spectacular Monte Txota Natural Park
  • Admire panoramic views from the highest point on the island
  • See Maio Island and the Volcano of Fogo Island in the distance, weather permitting

Description

Your day begins with the drive to Rui Vaz, where your trek starts. Along the trek you'll have the opportunity to visit the local cheese factory, followed by the climb through the Natural Park of Monte Txota. Located at an altitude of 800 meters and with its own micro-climate, this is one of the coolest places on the island with lots of biodiversity. Then, continue on towards the Pico D'Antónia. With an elevation of 1394 meters, this is the highest point of Santiago Island. When you get close to the top you will enjoy panoramic views of the São Jorge Valley, and possibly Maio Island and Fogo Island Volcano, weather permitting. Your trek will take about 5 to 6-hours, with a stop for a small picnic and views of beautiful landscapes along the way. The route will end with the return to the Monte Txota Natural Park and the ride back to your hotel.
