Departure from the port of Capo d’Orlando at 8.30 a.m. to reach the island of Salina, considered the ‘garden of the Aeolian Islands’ as it is the most fertile island. Here, the prized grapes from which Malvasia and the famous Salina capers, exported all over the world, are cultivated. You will then continue on to Santa Marina, where you will stop for an independent tour of the island. The centre of Santa Marina lies on the slopes of the Fossa delle Felci, the highest peak of the archipelago, also known as the ‘Roof of the Aeolian Islands’, consisting of an huge crater covered by dense vegetation. Santa Marina is the busiest spot on the island with its small shops, perfect for buying beautiful souvenirs, and typical restaurants where you can enjoy island specialities.
Back on board, you will continue to the island of Panarea, a magical island that holds archaeological and natural treasures. As you approach Panarea, you can admire the island’s beautiful coastline, full of bays and coves nestled in the rocks, until you arrive at the port of Panarea, where you can get off the boat to visit the island by yourself.
After a refreshing swim in the clear waters of Panarea, set off for Stromboli, the island of fire. While sailing, you can admire the picturesque village of Ginostra, isolated from the rest of the island and only accessible by sea, and the imposing Strombolicchio, a volcanic rock islet on which stands a lighthouse that was once used for navigation. Arriving at the port of Stromboli, you can get off for an independent tour of the island.
Stromboli is known worldwide for its constant volcanic activity that gives spectacular explosive eruptions. The most fascinating moment of the tour is reserved for the Sciara del Fuoco. At sunset, the boat will pass in front of this slope to witness from the sea the impressive spectacle of the explosive eruptions that this perpetually active volcano gives us. Its incandescent lava will pour into the sea, creating a surreal and spectacular scenario.
