Enjoy an exciting hiking route to Monte Tchota and Pico de Antonia, the highest points on Santiago island, with this fantastic trip from Praia.
Monte Tchota and Pico de Antonia Hike
At 9 am, we will pick you up from your hotel in the capital of Cape Verde before heading to Rui Vaz. At this picturesque mountain village, located at the foot of a valley, we will start our amazing hike through the interior of Santiago island. Remember to bring your camera to capture a permanent memory of these beautiful natural landscapes!
We will make the first stop at a cheese factory, where we will learn how these products are made. The four-hour route will take us to the highest points of Santiago island. The first peak we ascend is the 2600 ft Mount Tchota, home to one of the most beautiful Natural Parks in Cape Verde.
At the top of the mountain, we will encounter a unique microclimate, which is notable for being one of the coolest on the island. We will also tell you all about the native fauna and the high biodiversity of these slopes. We then continue the trekking route through Santiago by climbing up to the summit of Pico de Antonia, located at 4500 feet high.
From the top of the highest peak on the island, we will enjoy excellent panoramic views of San Jorge valley. If the day is clear, we will also spot see the islands of Maio and Fogo on the horizon.
As we take in the landscapes, we will enjoy a delicious picnic lunch on the summit of Pico de Antonia. After lunch, we will walk back to the original starting point in Ruiz Vaz before driving back to Praia. Arrival at your hotel is scheduled for 4:30 pm.
