Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Aeolian Islands

The Aeolian Islands are an archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea. This group of eight Italian islands was created by volcanic activity and its emitted lava. The resulting volcanic arc is named after the demigod Aeolus and has been given the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site. The largest island of Lipari as well as the other seven islands have become popular tourist attractions for travelers from all over Italy as well as the rest of the world.

If you are looking for budget accommodations on the Aeolian Islands, you have a couple of hostels as well as B&B’s and hotels to choose from. Although the largest island, Lipari, offers the most hostel-type hotels in the Aeolian Arc, you certainly can find suitable, economic lodgings on all of the smaller islands as well. No matter which island you decide to call your temporary home, you can easily visit the other islands by ferry.

Most of the Aeolian hostels and B&B’s offer double-occupancy rooms at a very affordable price. The best part about the hotels and hostels in the Aeolian Islands are the spectacular views of the sea, shoreline, as well as the traditional, whitewashed buildings with large balconies and terraces. The worst part about the accommodations might be the difficulty in locating them and the mosquitoes that might be your roommates. Other than that, you can expect fresh breakfasts and basic rooms to keep you happy throughout your stay.

Once you are all settled into your Aeolian hostel, get ready for some island fun. There are two active volcanoes to see on Stromboli and Vulcano islands. If you are in good shape and equipped with hiking shoes, you can take a guided hike to the top of Stromboli. From there, you will be rewarded with a mesmerizing panoramic view as well as the sight of the beautiful crater. Depending on the momentary activity of the volcano, you might see quite a lot of sparks and lights. On the way back, you can make life easier by simply skiing down in the ashes. For those who want to take a more leisurely hike on their own, Vulcano is the more practical choice. There might not be as much volcanic activity going on here, but the view is a lifetime souvenir.

Besides the breathtaking experience of an active volcano, you can also enjoy the black sand beaches, the surrounding villages, as well as kayaking and canoeing. At the end of a day spent sightseeing and hiking, you will be happy to retire to your B&B or hostel on the Aeolian island of your choice.
