This excursion can be done by your own means or by taking part in an organised trip.
The journey starts from Porto di Levante, characteristic for its fumaroles and spa springs. Breaking in a north-west direction you go round the small Vulcanello peninsula.
Passing the channel which separates Lipari from Vulcano and continuing along the island’s coast towards the south, the Grotta del Cavallo is reached, inside which glare of the sun’s rays creates fantastic visual effects and colours.
Following the route you arrive at the Gelso lighthouse and finally return to Porto di Levante.
