Incredible volcanic island
Fogo offers an unforgettable experience for keen walkers and all those looking for an adventurous holiday. This friendly island offers some of the most striking scenery in the entire group. Fogo is an extraordinarily beautiful volcanic island, dominated by Mount Fogo, an active volcano with a 5 mile wide crater, rising to an amazing 9000 feet. The island is an unforgettable mix of fertile fields, tropical valleys and vineyards, alongside wild lunar landscapes and lava flows. The vast grey cone of the volcano contrasts with fertile coffee, banana and oranges plantations in the north west. Fogo will appeal to those with an adventurous spirit, as large parts of the island still feel well off the beaten track.
Extraordinary crater village
Fogo's most popular holiday destination is the clifftop town of Sao Fillipe: an atmospheric place with its neat colonial architecture, seafront promenade and black sandy beaches. No holiday to Fogo would be complete without taking a tour of the island, if only to experience the staggering roads and get a glimpse of charmingly simple villages. Outside of the comfortable town hotels, holiday accommodation can be fairly basic. The astonishing journey from Sao Fillipe to Cha das Caldeiras is a highly recommended excursion to experience the village’s astounding crater location.
