Package

No STRESS!
Northern islands


 


1 week relaxing on Sal and 1 week "Island-Hopping" on the Northern Islands

(14 days / 13 Nights)

Relax on the beautiful beaches of Sal and combine it with an "Island Hopping" to the northern islands of Cape Verde.

Feel the sun, the ocean and the salt on your skin: You will spend the first week relaxing on Sal – white sandy beaches, turquoise ocean and mostly blue sky will await you here. Take a break from your everyday life.

The second week you will visit the least touristic places on Cape Verde – and it's worth it! You will experience the typical Cape Verdean life and see impressive landscapes – during hikes on the fascinating island Santo Antão.
