The Pico do Fogo is one of the coolest things in Cabo Verde, in the Fogo Island. It is tricky to get to as it is quite remote, but it's a unique experience. Get on an 'aluguer' at the Sao Filipe airport and you'll save...More

Going up to the top of the Pico do Fogo was definitelly the highlight of the Cabo Verde trip! The view is amazing and both going up (the main volcano) as well as down (on the 2014 volcano side) give quite the adrenaline thrust. Hire...More

If you can't decide whether to climb it or not, the answer is yes! It took me 4 hours and 15 mins because of very bad weather, although it takes you normally around 2,5-3 hours to the top. It is worth every hard second, when...More

If you want to climb to Volcano, you need to be trainee and pretty practice of mountain. You need 3/4h to arrive on the top, the view is amazing but there isn’t anything similar to a pathway to follow. So you need a guide. The...More

This is worth every bit of the effort required to get to the top. Left Sao Filipe at 4.30am - got to the volcano and started the climb at 6.20am. Got to the top at 8.50am - that was at a relatively quick pace. Spent...More
