We have many unique holidays and a very popular one is our Cape Verde walking holiday on Fogo in 8 days.
A week full of contrasts, which already starts when you approach Fogo from the air. Majestic Pico Grande towers over everything (even your plane when you approach the island), and on a clear day can also be seen from Santiago. Climb up the steep ridge to the top of this active volcano, with amazing views of the crater and the lava fields below.
Then run down the scree and ash slopes, back to your Casa, which was built on the hot lava floor after the most recent eruption in 2014. Wander through the cobbled streets of colourful of Sao Filipe and Mosteiros – and relax with a glass of local Fogo wine, whilst watching the sun go down over neighbouring island Brava.
