The Meetup Trekking Festival is a hiking event which has the purpose to promote the São Nicolau’s potential for trekking development as an anchor-tourism product, providing an opportunity for unique experiences in this sports discipline, coupled with the possibility of benefiting from the culture and lifestyle of local populations.
In addition to allowing practitioners to experience the island’s fantastic network of walking trails and paths, in particular, the surroundings of the Monte Gordo Natural Park, as well as being in close contact with rural communities, the program includes cultural and recreational activities and thematic workshops with national and international experts as part of the festival’s program.
São Nicolau is one of the Cabo Verde islands and perhaps one of the least known. It is located in the northwestern quadrant of this archipelago and is characterized by a mixture of landscapes, which includes an extensive mountain region, intersected by green valleys – where agricultural activity holds special importance – and by volcanic plains that end on a rocky coastline.
Birthplace of several Cape Verde’s intellectuals, São Nicolau reveals itself as a sanctuary of culture and natural beauty untouched by tourism. In its small territory, it holds two of the seven wonders of Cabo Verde: the “Monte Gordo” Natural Park and the Geosite of “Carbeirinho”. Whether for its landscape, culture, beaches of both black and white sand, or its welcoming people, it is time to discover São Nicolau
This event takes place every year in November.
