About
This excursion is ideal for adventurers who love the mountains. Many people travel to Cape Verde and come to the island of Fogo especially to climb the majestic volcano "Pico de Fogo". This climb allows you to reach ... the highest point of Cape Verde! This magnificent active volcano rises to 2,829 meters above sea level. The difficulty level of this climb is difficult. You have to be in good physical condition. You will be accompanied by an experienced local mountain guide. On the sensation side, the climb can be a challenge for some. But know that a great reward awaits you at the top: total tranquility and a spectacular panoramic view. The descent of the volcano on the volcanic ash is very pleasant and cheerful. This excursion provides enthusiasm and strong emotions. You will love!

    Pico Do Fogo
    Stop: 5 hours
    This ascent of the Grand Pico volcano, over 1000 meters in elevation, is done in the company of an experienced local mountain guide who has perfect knowledge of the volcano. The excursion lasts on average 5 hours. The ascent lasts 3 to 4 hours and the descent 1 to 2 hours depending on the pace of each. The climb, sometimes sporty, is regularly interspersed with breaks allowing you to breathe and contemplate the landscape. Once at the top, a feeling of extreme satisfaction emerges. And what a pleasure to be at such a high altitude and so close to the crater of the silent, unruffled, yet still active Grand Pico! The descent on the volcanic sand is light and very pleasant. If you stay in São Filipe, we offer the excursion "Departure from São Filipe" including the transfer from São Filipe - Chã das Caldeiras - São Filipe. We also have the option "Departure from Chã das Caldeiras" if your accommodation is located there.

Qualitur were excellent. Fatima helped with my flight and ferry tickets from Praia to Fogo at quite short notice, which were not straightforward to purchase myself, out of the country. The tours I arranged through Qualitur were also great, and the guides were very nice. The trip to the top of Pico do Fogo was really spectacular 🇨🇻🌋. Thanks very much
