SALINA – Day 4

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 towards smouldering Stromboli in the distance.

STROMBOLI – Day 5

Early morning we make our way to the most active volcano in Europe. Pack your hiking shoes to 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.

VULCANO – Day 6

The first of two active volcanoes we encounter on this trip, Vulcano is well known for its sulphur rich mud baths and smoking fumaroles. The lunar landscape echoes the last eruption in 1890, with soft black sand beaches dotted around the shore. Walk up to the main crater and witness the astonishing views to the sea.
