Pico do Fogo

Pico do Fogo

Pico do Fogo is an active stratovolcano located in the Ilha do Fogo, one of the southernmost islands in Cape Verde.

Located within the Fogo National Park, hotspot volcanic area, the road to the volcano is asphalted. It’s a very scenic drive. Its highest elevation is 1.815m (5,954ft) above the sea level.  The road is pretty steep, climbing up from Achada Fuma (900 m above sea level) to the edge of the caldera. The road includes several hairpin turns.
