Scalata al Cratere, Isola Vulcano

4.9
#1 of 9 in Trails in Sicily
Climb to the top of a volcano when you hike Scalata al Cratere. Take the steep climb up, wandering between yellow fumaroles of steaming sulfur. Take note that it may not smell pleasant, and the smell can stay in your clothes, and possibly transfer to other clothes you pack them with. From the summit are views of the sea and neighboring islands, Lipari, Panarea, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi, and Alicudi. You can even look straight down into the volcanic crater. You will be hiking through black volcanic rock and sand, which may stain shoes. Bring hiking boots, or rent a pair in town for a reasonable price. Make sure to bring plenty of water. Morning hikes are cooler and less crowded. If you go for sunset views, be sure to leave with enough time to get down before dark, as there is no lighting on the path.

    To do absolutely while visiting the volcano island possibly with an explanation during the walk. Bring your own water, comfy shoes and a mask if it bothers the sulfur odor (needed for part of the trail around the crater).

    A little tiring climb but when you get out of there is heaven. Seeing is believing ... It took 55 minutes to climb half an hour to tour the volcanic mouth and beautiful 40 min to get off
