Magnificent views are waiting on top of the volcano! And the gas and smoke emission is stunning. Better go early in the morning or before sunset to avoid crowds.

It’s a decent walk! I would advise you to wear good shoes not sandals and take some water. The views are excellent and the volcano was thrilling. There’s a constant cloud of fumes at the top. It’s the first time I’ve been near an active...More

I think the walk up is more than 800 metres but who cares when the views are spectacular and seeing the smoke from the fissures is awesome. Great sense of achievement.

The walk is not really difficult, and VERY rewarding. Amazing sight!!!! Sulfur everywhere, and black volcano ashes to walk on. But beautiful.

It's not the most difficult of the volcanos on the islands and can easily be walked without a guide. Talk plenty of water!

We decided to walk up to the crater on a semi-cloudy morning. The ascent took about 45 minutes and takes you the edge of the crater mouth. Walking to the summit and around the edge takes another 30 minutes but is highly recommended. The views...More

We went up during a thunder and lightning storm that approached from the west. Totally unique experience, lightning strikes at sea and booming thunder overhead; sulphurous smoke fields above the massive crater, a good walk with fabulous views of the islands.
