Among nature; On an island; Near water
The island of Vulcano is great for hikes, mountain bike trips or a quad tour. On longer trips you will encounter wonderful vantage points from where you have a panoramic view of the Lipari Isles. In August, the number of cars allowed on the island is limited. Only the island's inhabitants and tourists who actually have an accommodation on the island are allowed to have cars on the island. There are several possibilities for renting mountain bikes and quads. These are by far the most ideal means of transportation on the island. Via specially built trails you can explore the Gran Crater. These trails take you to the core of the volcano. There is no more lava in the crater, but there are still sulfur fumes. These vapors create an impressive and mysterious landscape. By boat you arrive at Porto di Levante, which is located on the resort of Vulcano, bearing the same name as the island. Other villages on the island are: Lentia, Piano and Gelso. At the small harbor you will find thermal baths. These hot springs with mud treatments are beneficial to your health. The still relatively undiscovered Aeolian Islands have all you need to make your holiday a unique event - bays, creeks, active volcanoes, isolated reefs, clear water full of marine life, beautiful colors and archaeological treasures. The Aeolian Islands are on UNESCO’s world heritage list.
