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
I have just returned from 2 nights in Fogo. Make no mistake, everyone is very friendly and helpful (even tough I don't speak Portugues nor Kriol). I took a Collectiva from Sao Filipe to the tiny village at the foothills of the volcano, 1000$ (escuedos)....More
Climbed this mountain which takes you up to one of the best craters in the world. The island of Fogo regularly faces volcanic eruptions and you can visit a number of the craters in the area. Many people climb up to Pico and return in...More
I did review already for Gazuza (he is fantastic and YES, Caldeiras is beyond amazing!). I hesitated to tell my story but while visiting Fogo, I was robbed. For the FIRST time in my life and I have traveled all over the world for over...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
We had a lot of fun hiking this mountain. The hike takes between 6 and 7 hours, but only about half of that is spent climbing up. There is a big peak, and then you can have the option of going to the second peak...More

Hello! Yes u can avoid this because as you get to the top you Will enjoy your view and the cable will be just to get to the highest point and if u dont want u dont need to pass this way so dont worry because u go down the same way . where you should do that the day you get to cha das Caldeira which is a 3 hour hike the most but i say about 2 hours if you good in hiking . So do that in the morning time start around 9 am and u can do this one without a guide just get a taxi in sao Felipe and the will show u the track and u should be good. And then go to( casa Ramiro) they have live music the wine and they are happy people u will love them and there they have cheap good rooms and you will find a guide there also to bring u to the top very nice guy doesn't speak to much English but am sure u will understand him .so u will go up the same way u come down and as u come down u have the fun part where u go down the black ash and jump up and down like a little kid! Hope this help a little !
