Route description

A hop and a skip away from Sicily`s northern shore are 7 magical islands that we`ll sail around for one week: Vulcano, Lipari, Stromboli, Panarea, Salina, Filicudi & Alicudi. Each with its own unique personality and traits, these unspoiled volcanic patches of land will feel like time stood still hundreds of years ago. Yes, we did say volcanic and yes that means black-sand beaches and sizzling lava craters. We`ll add some stunning turquoise waters, amazing beaches, picturesque villages, sunsets on active volcanos and rustic cuisine adorned with traditional honey-sweet Malvasia wine.

All the ingredients for a slice of Italian paradise known as the Aeolian Islands, a Unesco World Heritage Site since 2000 and the best place for sophisticated sailors and food enthusiasts.

These 3 islands have the mythical feel as well as the modern touch, but most of all, they have a breathtaking coastline waiting to be sailed and snorkeled.

If you are looking for a “once in a lifetime” moment, this is the place where you can admire a perfect sunset on the top of an active volcano, while lava flows a few meters away from you.

Smokin' vulcano, right ahead!

Discover Aeolian Islands Itinerary

Sicily – Italy

Vulcano

Leaving from Marina di Portorosa our first stop will be the black beaches of Vulcano, where we will dock for the night in the southern part of the island. Named after the Roman God of Fire, this island is nothing but impressive with its lunar landscape created by the smoking volcano that last erupted in 1890. The smell of sulfur is a daily thing here but once you feel the soft black sand under your feet and have a swim in the sea bubbling with hot springs, it will be the last thing on your mind.

lipari island marina
Lipari

One of the largest Aeolian Islands, Lipari has many docking marinas for us to choose from. We`ll let you get lost in the narrow streets with charming little shops and restaurants perfect for enjoying the Italian Cucina with the Malvasia delle Lipari on the side. If you feel like basking in nature, renting a scooter is the best way to get away and discover the panoramic points with breathtaking views of the neighboring islands. But did we mention the turquoise waters and the perfect white beaches around the island? Papesca, Campo Bianco or Aqua Calda are just a few of them and trust us, it`s a sight worth seeing with waters worth swimming in.

Stromboli

Defined by its erupting lava, you will not want to miss a one of a kind sunset enjoyed from one of Europe’s still active volcanoes. Yes, that’s right, we will get you on top of Stromboli with a guided tour and all you need are some hiking boots, a warm jacket, 30 euros and 5 hours of your time. This dramatic island bursts of lava fireworks and coves with black beaches with turquoise waters ideal for snorkeling, if you are not the hiking type.

panarea island in italy
Panarea

The smallest but yet the most beautiful of them all, Panarea is the unspoiled jewel where the rich and famous come to play. Rocky shores with colorful sub-tropical vegetation, surrounded by small islets with see-through waters, this is the go-to place for snorkeling. Measuring just 2.5km by 1.8km, this unspoiled little island, is the best example of nature at its finest. Delight yourself with a quiet afternoon in the secluded bay of Cala Junco and hypnotizing views of Stromboli from its highest points.

Portorosa
Portorosa is our starting point and just as well end-line where we’ll get back Friday. Marina where we’ll spend our last night on the yacht is like a skittish small village with many villas and canals. Farewell dinner will be served at a restaurant by the sea.
