Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Sicily / Islands of Sicily / Aeolian Islands / Isola Vulcano / Scalata al Cratere
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.

Scalata al Cratere reviews
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! more »
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. more »
Incredible views, the climb is not so demanding if you do not decide to walk in the worst heat.
Like you are on different planet!!! Definitely would love to come back!
