Such a disappointment having taken the boat to Volcan to climb the volcano, to get to the start of the trail and find it's closed. This seemed a surprise to quite a few tourists. Wonder if it'll ever be deemed safe enough to reopen.

The track to the crater is currently closed - better come here once it is reopened. The gas is very dangerous and can cause serious health issues or even death. There is no option to rent oxygen-masks either.

Love the simple lift here. its a short hop from the main land so gives you the option to experience island life even just for a few days. Climb the vulcano, hire a buggy to explore the island end to end. Less sophisticated than Panarea or Salina but that is its charm and there are plenty of good restaurants to try - to splash out book the restaurant at the Therasia Resort which is outstanding. The walk to the top of the Vulcano is not as strenuous as on Stomboli but gives an idea of the sheer majesty and uniqueness of these islands

We came here for a day while staying on Salina. We planned to have a mud bath but the therme was closed. Contrary to what the internet says there doesnt seem to be free access out of season. Decided to go for swim on the beach next to the therme but sea was only 50 cm deep and no fun swimming. Took the next ferry back - the whole island doesnt come across as the most inviting place.

Easy walk up, even accessible for non sportive people. But requires a good balance for the walk down, and good shoes. Great for nice pictures and nice open landscape. A must do!

Must-see attraction. Bring enough water (1.5l per person, min.), some kind of hat and don't go up there in a flip-flop, please. In August, with that heavy sun and heat, I don't say it is an easy trip.

The Eolian islands are mostly famous for the Stromboli Volcano which is most of the time active.
In our case we were unlucky as its top was clouded so no amazing red lava by night, but the other Volcano in these islands is this one and it is much more accessible than the Etna.
No need for an expensive cable car, no need for more expensive jeep guided tours, yes you need to climb for 30 minutes or so, according to your fitness level, but then the reward is there.
And for free.

A charming experience. A small island consisting mostly of the volcano and the seaside village/port. The hike to the rim of the volcano is moderately strenuous

The volcano is easily accessible all to the top. Therefore, it is an excellent place to give smaller children, a view of a genuine volcano. You don't have to wear trekking boots if you have good trainers or trail running shoes.

Whoever comes to the island of Vulcano will try to climb up to the 'Gran Cratere' at about 400m asl. Still quite an effort, but nothing in comparison to the 'Scalata' on Stromboli. This tour is very popular,.so expect crowds. Once on top most people though go left to the fumaroles, while to the right one can go the highest spot of the crater rim, circling the whole crater and at the end still go past the fumaroles.

What one is not supposed to do is to go down to the bottom of the crater, about 80m below the rim. Although one can see people in sandals, hiking boots are still recommended. At the start there is a shop, which rents out hiking boots and walking sticks. While on the crater there is no food or water available, so it is best to take some along.
