Holidays including Flights To Vulcano Island

Being the site of one of the two active volcanos on the UNESCSO Heritage Site-listed Aeolian Islands, and with its rugged cliffs and blackened rock rising sharply out of the sapphire sea, it is little wonder that Greek mythology marked Vulcano as the place where Hephaestus, the god of craftsmen, had his workshop.

The island is home to unique geological sites that are all within easy reach from the resorts situated around the northern peninsula of Vulcanello. The steaming volcano is the island’s most obvious attraction and treks to the Fosso or the Gran Cratere, will take you further into this otherworldly landscape.

At the foot of steep hillsides sits the local harbour. Here you’ll find the narrow isthmus with its black beaches leading to Vulcanello, as well as the island’s famous mud baths, knowns as Laghetto di Fanghi. The mud is believed to have therapeutic powers, and although the sulphuric fumes may not be the most welcoming aroma, a dip in the baths, warmed by hot natural springs, is a truly refreshing experience. A dip should undoubtedly be followed by taking in the local delights and wine at the local restaurants surrounding the harbour, before heading out to explore the area further.

Vulcano Island can either be experienced on its own, or via trips to and from its neighbouring Aeolian Islands. The Tyrrhenian Sea surrounding it offers boat tours and facilities for water sports, with the dark island as a scenic backdrop. Glittering in the sun, Vulcano is like a rough cut of the local gemstone obsidian, and visitors of all ages can indulge in what’s on offer in and around the jagged coastline.

If staying on an active volcano appeals to your sense of adventure, you’ll love taking a trip to Vulcano Island. This amazing place is ideal for travellers looking for a holiday with a difference, the scenery is stunning and the locals are friendly, and that’s without even mentioning the delectable food. You can stay on Vulcano Island, Italy, in one of the many luxury hotels, or you can take a day trip there from the mainland with little to no trouble at all. We can help you out with hotels and flights to Vulcano Island, so speak to the team at Fleetway Travel today.
