Fogo in Cape Verde

The fiery island of Fogo is no doubt the most volcanically active of all the volcanoes in Cape Verde, especially since its last eruption in 2014.

Make sure you’re seated on the right-hand side of the plane when you’re flying in and you can immediately see that the island is dominated by the archipelago’s highest peak.

It consists of a single volcano, which is why the island is almost circle-shaped and about 25 kilometers (16 mi) in diameter. (Read about the last eruption on our blog).

The peak sits within the spectacular Cha das Caldeiras with its black volcanic moonscape and monstrously contorted lava flows that beg to be climbed. After a hard day’s walk in the crater, relax in colourful and peaceful São Filipe, on the coast.
