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

We are very proud of being able to launch our new website despite these difficult times. It is of high importance to us as we truly believe in the touristic future of this country. More than ever we – together with all our local service partners – pursue the philosophy of sustainable tourism.
Since the beginning of the crisis we have supported many families and local people thanks to our crowd funding action.
Now we are going to focus on our first travellers by establishing the common hygienic standards together with our service partners.
Each guest should be able to experience a beautiful and memorable holiday again.
I wish you a lot of fun browsing through our new site and I hope to see you soon!

Self-driving trip on São Vicente & Santo Antão (8 days)

How are YOU coping with these difficult times of corona?

For us it is important to have personal freedom and to get to other thoughts. It is in our vista verde nature to be innovative and to accept this situation- very Cape Verdean!

With this independent trip we promise you some untroubled days and a little bit of this freedom. We promise you normality – a little bit like „before“. We promise a world that is not dominated by corona.

The islands and accommodation have been chosen wisely. On São Vicente and Santo Antão there are only very few recorded cases (as of end of August 2020).

For further information please check out our blog.

The islands and we are looking forward seeing you!

If you are booking our „self-driving trip“ still this year, we will reward you with a „Welcome-Bonus“

"Txau e até já " as you say in Creole. See you soon!
