Overview

Are you a nature lover and fascinated by volcanic landscapes? Have you always wanted to witness an eruption? Explore the wonders of the Aeolian archipelago and have an unforgettable experience with our minicruise by night to the islands of Vulcano, Panarea and Stromboli. Get ready for an unforgettable adventure that will leave you breathless and remain impressed in your memory.

As you step on board our mini cruise, you’ll be greeted by a professional and friendly crew. Feel the gentle sea breeze on your face, relax and leave all your worries behind.

Depart from the port of Milazzo at 12 pm for the island of Vulcano, a land of primordial strength and beauty. Stroll along Vulcanello, a small promontory connected to the island of Vulcano by an isthmus formed in the 16th century following a volcanic eruption. This strip of land offers a marvellous vantage point over the entire Aeolian archipelago, but its real peculiarity lies in the ‘Valley of the Monsters‘, characterised by the presence of lava rocks that, depending on the point of observation and the shadows cast on the ground, form monstrous figures. If you love trekking, don’t miss the climb to the crater of Vulcano*. Once at the top, you will enjoy a marvellous panorama and can even catch a glimpse of the island of Lipari.

What to see on Vulcano Island

  • Baia delle Acque Calde is famous for its underwater fumaroles, making it a ‘natural jacuzzi’.
  • Baia delle Sabbie Nere is a characteristic beach of fine black sand with shallow waters.
  • Climb to the crater of Vulcano, a pleasant 45-minute walk among broom, volcanic rocks and ground composed of volcanic dust.

The second destination is the picturesque island of Panarea, a magical island that holds archaeological and natural treasures. While sailing, you can admire the islets surrounding the island (Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera) and the Panarelli and Formiche rocks.

What to see on Panarea Island

  • The prehistoric village of Punta Milazzese dates back to the Middle Bronze Age (1500-1300 BC). It can be reached on foot in about 45 minutes or by Panarea’s typical electric taxis.
  • Cala Zimmari, a secluded bay nestled among the rocks. With its crystal-clear waters and characteristic red sand, this corner of paradise will provide you with moments of absolute relaxation and serenity.
  • Cala Junco is one of the most beautiful inlets in the Aeolian archipelago. Here, you will feel as if you are suspended between sky and sea, surrounded by rocks that give it a peculiar U-shape.

To conclude your minicruise to the islands of Vulcano, Panarea and Stromboli, sail towards the island of Stromboli, the island of fire. While sailing, you can admire the picturesque village of Ginostra, isolated from the rest of the island and accessible only by sea, and the imposing Strombolicchio, a volcanic rock islet on which a lighthouse was installed for navigation. Arriving at the port of Stromboli, you can disembark for an independent tour of the island. Reach the beaches with their characteristic black sand and relax by sunbathing and taking a refreshing swim.

What to see on Stromboli Island

  • Forgia Vecchia beach is a small bay with crystal-clear waters and a relaxing environment.
  • Ficogrande beach is an equipped beach ideal for families.
  • Church of San Vincenzo, from whose square you can admire a beautiful panoramic view. Here you can admire the house where Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman stayed during the shooting of the film ‘Stromboli, Land of God‘.

Stromboli is known all over the world 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 in order 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.
