Welcome to vista verde tours – the travel expert of Cape Verde!

We are very proud to announce that we are still alive despite this particular time. Since more than 18 months we have been without any income – it has been and still is a tremendous challenge.
More than ever it is essential for the country and the people to pursue the philosophy of sustainable tourism together with our many local service partners on spot.
Finally, we see a light at the end of the tunnel from autumn on.
First guests have announced themselves and we are prepared – together with our partners on spot – to receive them according to the international hygiene standards. The vaccination campaign is running well and the percentage of people eligible to receive it is quite high.

It is of high importance to us that people can go back to work and surely that our guests can – at least for some moments – forget Corona and enjoy the time on the archipelago.
I hope to see you soon!
Warm regards
Heike Alter

SANTA LUZIA - DESERTED AND LONELY

The deserted island of mystical and magical legends


This uninhabited island of 35 square metres is located between São Vicente and São Nicolau. During the 19th century it had mostly been used for farming. An extremely arid climate combined with the lack of any natural water resource and only sparse vegetation has resulted in Santa Luzia never being colonised properly.

Nowadays the island serves as a breeding ground for many endemic bird species, and for this reason it is a protected reserve. At the moment only local fishermen are allowed to enter the surrounding water (sailing boats and yachts need special permission) but there is a long-term vision to establish tourism on the island in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.
