Scalata al Cratere, Isola Vulcano

4.9
#1 of 9 in Trails in Sicily
Hiking Trail Nature / Park
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.

  • Walk feasible at sunset, with water! Gorgeous scenery! Beautiful!! Not too difficult, not recommended but in the hottest hours!

  • Not too complicated but it is preferable to have the right shoes, water, and the coolest hours ... then the sight repays the effort and it would be a waste to leave the volcano without getting up!

  • Very nice location and tiring, certainly the first thing you should do if you visit the island of vulcano. On the path there are signs indicating the journey meters but the path is very dangerous and unsafe, anyway me worth with a breathtaking and fascinating outbreaks.
