The climb to the Great Crater of Vulcano is one of the most extraordinary moments of your holidays in the Aeolian Islands. From the top of the crater, you can admire the entire Aeolian archipelago.
The tour to the Great Crater will be carried out with an expert volcanological guide.
The path to the summit consists of a walk in the middle of nature, following a path surrounded by volcanic boulders and colorful brooms.
From the top of the crater, you can admire a breathtaking view of the sea and the Aeolian Islands, where we continuously witness the emission of heat and fumes despite the last eruption dating back to 1980.
The fumaroles, mainly composed of sulfur and sulfur dioxide, are one of the most incredible spectacles, a natural phenomenon that colors the ground with particular yellow ocher and red that contrasts with the black of the ashes and the green of the luxuriant vegetation.
Once you reach the top of the crater, it will be possible to stop for about half an hour to enjoy a unique panorama of the world.
At the end of the visit, we will return to the port.
