    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!
