The scents of sulphur are far from subtle – let’s be real, it’s a bit whiffy and that’s putting it mildly, but even so, you just can’t visit Vulcano without seeing why the island’s unique geothermal activity is a draw for so many people from around the world. No MedSailors Italy sailing trip is complete without a visit to Vulcano’s hot springs and therapeutic mud baths, particularly those in the Fossa di Volcano crater.

Here are a few reasons why.

They’re Some of Italy’s Most Famous Mud Baths

And if that isn’t a good enough reason on its own, we don’t know what is.

Soak in Those Therapeutic Benefits

People pay a lot of money for mud baths in fancy spas and there’s a reason for it! Vulcano’s mud baths have anti-inflammatory properties, will ease tired muscles, and soothe your skin. Get in and get healing!

Experience Relaxation Like No Other on Your MedSailors Italy Adventure

There’s something about immersing yourself in mud that just feels oddly comforting.

Bond with Your Boat Pals

Because what better way is there to strengthen new friendships than by dousing yourself in mud?! It’s time to make some unforgettable memories together as you lounge in a muddy volcanic crater amid some of the finest scenery on the planet. Sounds good, right?

Enjoy Some Pretty Great Selfie Ops on your Sailing Trip

Okay, so selfies aren’t everything BUT lolling in Vulcano’s warm mud baths has got to be up there with some of the single best selfie opportunities there are. Just make sure to take the necessary precautions so you don’t damage your tech. No selfie is worth a broken camera!

It’s Just Really REALLY Good Fun, You Know?

We reckon that doing things just because they’re fun is a really underrated reason for doing stuff. So even if you’re not really interested in the other reasons – just do it because it’s fun. Who needs reasons anyway!  Although, after a long hike up an actual volcano, you’ll really appreciate this odd muscle relaxation thing after.
