  • A small hike without difficulty but that ends with a magnificent view. Since the road to Calhau takes right to residency Goa and leave his car. Through a desert landscape a market of about 30 minutes to the volcano. The track is not clear but there are just heading to the volcano. To climb the lower part being a little careful. Once at the top, a little wind but a perfect caldera views. It is not necessary (and even useless) down. You can finish your hike on the beautiful white sand beaches of Sandy Beach or Topin (be careful in the Sun and water, because there are about an hour's walk).

  • On São Vicente, we made a tour of the island with Cape Verde Safari because we absolutely wanted to reach to the Viana volcano and we afraid to this trip with a rental car us! We drove from Calhau cyclo-cross in the direction of the volcano! Alone we wouldn't have found her safe and if so we would never drove the car over "Hill and Dale"! We didn't see a gravel road, which should - lead to the volcano as mentioned in brochures -! Up to the crater rim, we had to climb the last stage of lava rocks on foot! Sturdy shoes or boots should be worn! The effort is rewarded as soon as you arrive at the edge of the crater. The views of the crater rim and the panorama are gigantic. Even the island of Santa Luzia can be seen in the South East!
