Acquaint yourself with the volcanic nature of Cape Verde by way of a panoramic drive through fantastic landscapes and volcanic valleys. You'll pass dramatic coastlines, where the beaches typically have white sand and a black backdrop of lava mountains.
Enjoy a drive up Monte Verde -- the highest point on the island -- for a glimpse of São Vicente's many different landscapes (weather permitting) and the neighboring islands of St Antão and St Lucia.
A coastal drive leads you to magnificent Praia Grande Beach -- the venue for a tasting of local liqueur.
The road back to the pier passes through the Calhau Valley agricultural region, Cape Verde's breadbasket. Your guide will tell you about the farming methods and crops grown here.
Tourism infrastructure is limited in Cape Verde; coaches typically do not have air-conditioning or a PA system. Views are weather permitting.
