Depart from Praia towards the interior of the island, making your first stop at Serra Malagueta.

Discover a natural paradise with rich local fauna and flora and reach an altitude of 1,064 meters.  The entire trail follows a mostly flat surface, with various endemic plants and animals, offering magnificent views of Assomada, and, on clear days, all the way to the islands of Fogo and Maio. After 2 hours walking, take a break for a picnic in the middle of the forest.  Continue along the top of the mountains with incredible 360-degree views between two verdant valleys. Afterwards, visit the Rabelados religious community, the only community that still lives in thatched houses and preserves the oldest customs and beliefs of Cape Verde. The tour concludes with drop-off at your accommodation in Praia.
