In the company of a volcanologist, hike up to the peak of Mount Epomeo and down into a volcanic crater.

For anyone interested in natural phenomena, flora and hiking we have expert guides who will lead you. Take a five hour, six km trek to the top of Mount Epomeo, the volcano that generated Ischia. Enjoy a breathtaking view over the Gulf of Naples at the peak.

Walk to the lip of a volcanic crater then make your descent to the centre, past vents, pausing to analyse volcanic rocks and magnifying crystals to admire nature’s astonishing beauty. A fascinating 3 hours, 3 km trek.

An easier 1km trek is equally fascinating where you learn how to cook with natural volcanic heat. Collect herbs en route, bury and bake lunch, and enjoy a refreshing swim in the sea while it is cooking.
