Activity description

The hike on the crater of Vulcano in the Aeolian Islands will leave you speechless. Because it is a rare experience: looking out on the edge of the crater of an active volcano with an extraordinary view on the horizon.

The cone of the Gran Cratere de La Fossa di Vulcano seems to be drawn with a pencil in the landscape. If you asked a child to draw a volcano, he would probably represent it just like that of the Aeolian Islands.

During this hike, I will explain the biodiversity of the territory and the principles of volcanology. In addition I will talk in detail of the fumaroles, the endemic broom of the Tyrrhenian Sea and other pioneer plant species.

But I will also tell you many exciting stories:

  • on insects adapted to live on a volcano that periodically bursts out;

  • on men exploited for the mineral riches that La Fossa offered;

  • myths and ancient tales.

Here are some details about the excursion to the crater of Vulcano. The road is mostly sandy and does not present technical difficulties. Only the absence of shadow can be a problem, easily overcome with a hat, sunscreen and enough water.

  • difficulty: E (Excursion)

  • duration: about 3 walking hours

  • difference in height: 390 m

  • recommended equipment: shoes with sculpted sole, hat, at least 2 liters of water, snacks, clothing suitable for the season.

Do not miss this extraordinary experience! You will have the unrepeatable opportunity to be right there on the edge of a crater, simply facing the wonders of nature.

Everything will be within reach of your eyes and ears, if you have the courage not only to watch but also to listen to this majestic volcano.
