Vulcano Hiking Experience

Vulcano is an island of wilderness: the clear waters of the sea, hot springs, mud and the well-known fumaroles that spew sulfur dioxide and black sand and can be considered a magic cure-all for health and beauty. During the navigation to the island don’t miss stops in sequence at the black beaches of Gelso, the Horse Cave and the Pools of Venus.

Meet your trekking guide and follow him on a well-marked sandy path that climbs to the most “dangerous” crater of the archipelago. An incredible lunar landscape of smoking holes, sulfur and volcanic “bombs” awaits you, here is easy to understand why the powerful beauty of this island impressed so many writers and poets.

Difficulty: Easy- 2/5

Difference in level: 391 meters

Trail of Vendicari

Lunch at Marzamemi

Vendicari is an extended area of about 13 kilometres, including the entire coastline from Marzamemi to Avola…


If you love long walks, you will appreciate this place.

It is not exactly trekking as the slopes are not relevant, but each path covers about 3 km of the reserve, all bordered by rocky beaches spaced out with some beautiful coves, including Calamosche, awarded with the title “most beautiful beach of Italy” in 2005 by the Blue Guide of Legambiente.

An half-way trip between trekking and a jump back in time, inside the ancient excavations of the Greek city right next to the beach of Eloro, passing through the promontory of the Cittadella with its view on the Trigona and the Etruscan catacombs along the coast along through via Elorina…

After this beautiful 13 K trail we will stop and have lunch in the fishing town of Marzamemi (lunch not included)
