Trends / Adventure

These UNESCO-protected islands jut from the sea off Sicily and have become a favorite destination for adventurous travelers.

Lipari, Salina, Stromboli and Panarea are the most famous of the islands. Lipari is the largest, and counts on a sizeable permanent population while the others are less populated. There isn’t much to keep you in any of the towns or villages, and enjoying the natural attractions is your best bet.

Lipari has some good hiking along the path from Terme di San Calogero and Bagnosecco, and Salina is the greenest island of them all. The climb to Monte Fossa delle Felci is great, or you can hang out in the local vineyards if you want to do something more relaxing.

Panarea is something of a luxury destination, and backpackers may find themselves priced out, but it’s got some of the best swimming and walking. You can also take a boat trip to the islets offshore.

Stromboli’s main attraction is the volcano, which you can climb as part of a guided tour. It will take around two hours and you should be able to make it with just a sturdy pair of shoes and a warm jacket.
