Fogo Volcano and Caldera
Exploring Pico do Fogo (2 829m) is an experience sure to leave you with long-lasting memories. The volcano crater (Chã das Caldeiras), partly surrounded by an impressive barrier of rocks, covers about 40km2. Small low-rise houses, undergoing reconstruction since the 2014 eruption, stand in this black basin bristling with rocks. This unique environment is extremely fertile: it produces an excellent lava wine. Contact the São Filipe agencies to arrange transport, accommodation and hiking.
