Salina is known to most as the Green Island. Its mountains, two extinct volcanic cones, form an oriented nature reserve covering an area of 1521 hectares. The island is an ideal place for hiking activities. Trails winding through the countryside and up the two mountains allow for exciting itineraries, both on foot and by bicycle.

Mount Fossa delle Felci with its 962 metres is the highest peak of the entire archipelago. Along the slopes you can admire lush shrubs belonging to the Mediterranean macchia, such as broom, arbutus and honeysuckle. Towards the summit, on the other hand, pine forests, centuries-old oaks, holm oaks and chestnut trees stand out. During the spring, the crater is covered by an expanse of ferns, from which it derives its present name. Mount Porri, about 860 metres high and decidedly wilder, is instead sparsely covered with vegetation except for small shrubs among which it is possible to glimpse the volcanic rocks that make up the slope. The entire surface of the two mountains can be explored by a series of paths, an ideal place for birdwatchers and for all those who wish to be enraptured by the colours and scents of the island.

The hilly and flat areas where the settlements are located are still mainly cultivated with vines. Rows of Malvasia make their way between the houses and along the roads are numerous caper plants that embellish walks with the beauty of their flowers.
