7 days Aeolian islands charter route

    The Vulcano Island is a small volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, about 25 km north of Sicily. It contains several volcanic centers and the biggest attraction for tourists is climbing the craters. Another activity that is very popular are the island’s mud baths.

  • Day 2 – Filicudi – Alicudi (30 NM)

    Filicudi is situated 30–50 km northeast of the island of Sicily. Shaped like a snail, it is one of the prettiest of the Aeolian Islands. It attracts visitors with its crystal clear waters and pitted by deep grottoes. The most fascinating feature of Filicudi is its wild and unspoiled nature: rocky terraces, large rocks and the numerous caves.

    Alicudi has the smallest population of the Aeolian Islands. On this island guests can explore the braying donkeys which are the island's mode of transport. The island is a simple place with an absolutely unique atmosphere and fewer than 100 inhabitants.

  • Day 4 – Snorkeling or diving in Punta Castagna (4 NM)

    To the north of the Island of Lapari is Punta Castagna, a great snorkeling and diving spot.

You can also visit the long and narrow beaches of Spiaggia di Acquacalda, Spiaggia di Valle Muria or Spiaggia di Vinci.

  • Day 5 – Stromboli (22 NM)

    Stromboli is a small volcanic island off the north coast of Sicily, containing one of three active volcanoes in Italy. Stromboli is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth. Since its eruptions are visible at night, it is known as the "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean". Each small explosion bursts magma into the sky and sends rivulets of lava into the sea. Stromboli is among the world's most visited volcanoes.

  • Day 6 –Salina – Panarea (25 NM)

    Salina is the second largest island in the archipelago. From a distance Salina looks entirely green and it features two twin inactive volcanoes. More than 400 different types of plants grow here. Gastronomically, Salina is best known for three products: fish, capers and a sweet dessert wine called Malvasia delle Lipari. The water is extremely clean and home to a wide variety of sea animals, plants, caves and submerged volcanic craters.

    Panarea is the second smallest of the eight Aeolian Islands. Panarea is the most fashionable of the Aeolians. There are thermal springs on the island located near villages. Scuba diving is a popular excursion, and you can even swim to a shipwreck. Panarea and the entire Aeolian chain were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000.
