Enjoy this hiking adventure with a scenic walking journey to the historic and mythological Volcanic Aeolian Islands, off the north coast of Sicily. Here, Greek mythology comes to life as Ulysses rests from his maritime adventures on the treacherous Straits of Scylla and Charybdis, Zeus makes Aeolus guardian of the winds and Vulcan works his forge inside the crater of a volcano.
We hike among wild flowers, figs and caper bushes of ever-changing colors, textures and perfumes. The Aeolian Island archipelago is a made up of of seven volcanic islands, the sleeping giants in the emerald blue Mediterranean Sea.
