This is a "heavier" trip and takes about 6 hours.

(depending on speed and stopping times).


You can have lunch (from your lunchbox) at the desired time at the desired location during your hike.

To shorten (abt 1 hour) the hike it is possible to go from "Picos" to "Leitão Baixo" by an “aluguer” (bustaxi) . (The road from "Picos" to "Leitão Baixo" is an asphalted road).


One can also extend the hike (abt 2 hours)  by visiting the nearby dam of “Faveta”.

After breakfast you start your hike from the guesthouse towards  "Bur-Bur" via "Cacheu “ to the village of "Picos" on the center of the island.


The trip to "Picos" takes about 1.5 hours. In "Picos" you will find beautiful colonial buildings and a special rock formation. You'll cross "dirt roads" / donkey trails and a cobble stone road.


From "Picos" you have the opportunity to walk back the same route for 1.5 hours or to make a long hike. The long hike goes  via "Achada Leitão" (hike ST301) to "Leitão Baixo"
