Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cape Verde hiking vacations, North Islands


By ecological tourism like this to Cape Verde we are helping to conserve the pristine beauty of the island which could be lost were visitors not to come to enjoy this landscape.

We recommend the use of a guide for this vacation. Not only will the clients get to enjoy the beauty of these areas and to enjoy the local wildlife, flora and fauna but the guide is able to give them a greater appreciation of its importance to the islands.

We advise all of our clients to stay to the marked paths. This is to maintain the environment as they pass so that it remains pristine for walkers using the pathways in the future. We also advise that they take all of their rubbish with them until the end of the day and recycle or dispose of it as is appropriate.

Whilst the accommodation which we use is surrounded by the lush greenness of the hillsides and their vegetation they do not impinge on it. They also are in areas where it is possible to enjoy the wonderful vistas of the island.


For all of our guided walking we use guides who have been guiding walkers in Cape Verde for a great many years. This enables our clients to benefit from hikes enhanced by our guides' local knowledge on the island's diverse flora, fauna and wildlife as well as in insight into how the islands work and their culture.

Wherever possible we attempt to make the most of local products and services which are available in order to enhance the vacation for our clients. This can include the use of local transport companies or car hire where necessary, as well as the locally owned and run accommodation hotels which we partner with on the island.

We believe it is important to work with the local community in order to maintain the beauty and splendour of the islands of Cape Verde as it currently is rather than it being spoilt, which could so easily happen were the local community not behind working to keep the island in it's diverse paradise.
