Description

The day begins with pickup from your accommodation in Praia and departs towards Nelson Mandela airport for your 35 minute flight to Fogo Island. The island is named after the imposing volcano that resides on it, which is still active today although the last eruption was in 2014. Upon arrival, visit the capital of the island, São Filipe, and wander around this charming little town lined with colorful houses. Continue the tour to Salinas, a small pebble beach where you can learn about the island’s geology and watch fishermen returning to shore with the day’s catch. Drive northwards to the village of Mosteiros and then across the eastern coast to reach the village of Cova Figueira. Enjoy a photo stop at the scenic Achada Furna and Cabeça Fundão along the way. Arrive at Chã das Caldeiras National Park and admire uninterrupted views of the volcano and rugged surrounding landscape. From there, visit a local coffee plantation to taste some of the best coffee and wine in the world. Enjoy a break for lunch, then head off into Monte Velha Forest, an area of fertile mountains and microclimates. At the end of an unforgettable day, say goodbye to Fogo and head back to the airport for your flight back to Santiago Island.
