Be enchanted by the beauty and primordial power of the island of Vulcano on a boat tour that will take you to discover its hidden wonders. Its volcanic landscapes and the typical smell of sulphur will transport you to a timeless place.
Depart from the port of Vulcano at 2 pm. The island tour will begin by coasting along Vulcanello, a small promontory connected to the island of Vulcano by an isthmus formed in the 16th century following a volcanic eruption. This strip of land offers a marvellous vantage point over the entire Aeolian archipelago, but its real peculiarity lies in the ‘Valley of the Monsters‘, characterised by the presence of lava rocks that, depending on the point of observation and the shadows cast on the ground, form monstrous figures.
Afterwards, navigation will proceed towards the Faraglioni, Grotta degli Angeli and Grotta del Cavallo. You will also admire the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a beach with characteristic black sand, and the Gran Cratere della Fossa. Next, be captivated by the beauty of the Piscina di Venere, a natural pool surrounded by tufa and basalt rocks. This magical place is shrouded in legend. Indeed, it is said that the goddess Venus would dive into these waters every night to regain her lost virginity before joining her husband, the god Vulcan.
You will then continue to Gelso, a small, sparsely populated village surrounded by unspoilt nature. The boat tour of Vulcano will end with the return to the port of Vulcano.
During navigation, at the captain’s discretion and weather and sea conditions permitting, it will be possible to make some stops to dive from the boat.
