Day 1 

PORTOROSA 

Perfectly placed to begin your Aeolian adventure, Portarosa has everything you need to get your adventure off to the right start.  Enjoy a refreshing swim at the nearby beach and take in the stunning scenery before we set sail to our first island, Vulcano as you settle on your yacht and mingle with your fellow sailors.

ASINO BEACH

One of two active volcanoes on the route, Vulcano is famed for its smouldering crater, bubbling mud baths and steaming fumaroles. We will spend our first night anchored just off of the pristine Asino Beach. Time for a quick dip, before we head ashore for what else…an authentic Italian pizza and wine!

Day 2

LIPARI 

A trip around the island by scooter lets you explore the whitewashed villages and admire the breath-taking views of the other islands. Cast a last glimpse at the smouldering peaks of this UNESCO Heritage listed archipelago and celebrate the best of Italy with your crew.

Day 3

STROMBOLI 

In the early morning, we will make our way to the most active volcano in Europe. Pack your hiking shoes and join a tour to the tip of the crater, the gentle rumbling beneath your feet hinting at what lies beneath. Sunset invites the full spectacle, with bursts of lava on show! For the less adventurous, secluded sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkelling.

Day 4

PANAREA 

The most beautiful of the Aeolian Islands, Panarea impresses on every level. Popular amongst the yachting elite, expect delicious seafood, boutique shops and the perfect setting for sunset cocktails. A short ride away is Cala Junco, a secluded bay ideally situated for a tranquil afternoon, and nearby Lisca Bianca’s multi coloured rocky shores offer hidden coves and bubbling sea springs.

Day 5 

SALINA 

Instantly recognisable by its twin peaks, Salina is a green, fertile island that is famous for the production of the local sweet wine – Malvasia. Wind your way around the lush landscape on a scooter to sample the local vintage, before heading back to town for a signature Italian treat, refreshing granita. At sunset, you can admire the view of smouldering Stromboli in the distance.

Finish the day with a relaxing mud bath, before spending one last evening with your shipmates in the main town of Vulcano.
