Located south of the Canary Islands, the Cape Verde archipelago is a walkers paradise. With its rugged coastlines and fertile terraced volcanic slopes we have plenty of days to explore four of these beautiful islands. After enjoying 1 night on Sal we arrive onto Sao Vicente and have time to explore the colourful town of Mindelo picking up the flavour Creole Portuguese-African culture, before taking a ferry to the most northerly island, Santo Antao. We spend four walking-packed days here amidst the sub-tropical jagged mountains. In stark opposite to the nearby island of Sal with its flat sandy beach and watersports, Santo Antao is lush, mountainous and a haven for walkers.

Triglav is the Slovenia’s highest mountain, featuring three peaks with the highest one reaching 2864 meters. According to one of the legends, there was a magical Goldenhorn inhabiting the Triglav Mountains. The horns of the mysterious creature were made of gold and would make anyone who caught Goldenhorn forever rich. The Goldenhorn was never caught due to its artfulness in escaping from the chasers, even when injured. The magic power of Goldenhorn was hidden in a divine flower protecting him from deathly wounds. The flower was growing in the crevices of Triglav and boasted unfathomable beauty.
