Sicilian Volcanoes

Walk among the giant volcanoes of the Aeolian Islands and see the black sand beaches and thermal springs that hint at a violent geological history which has shaped the beauty that you see today.  

  • Style: Guided Small Group Walking Tour
  • Duration: 8 days/7 nights
  • Starts in: Catania
Highlights:
  • Catania
  • Mount Etna
  • Stromboli
  • Milazzo
Itinerary:

 Day 1  Catania to Milazzo
Arrive in Catania and transfer by road to Milazzo.  

Day 2  Milazzo to Lipari
Cruise to Vulcano, famous for its long stretches of black sand beaches and bubbling thermal springs. Walk up to the crater rim to see the steaming 'fumaroles' or volcanic gas vents. There’s free time to bathe in the hot springs and mud baths, before taking a hydrofoil to Lipari.  

Day 3  Lipari  
Begin the day with a walk along Lipari’s unspoilt west coast. Afterwards, spend time in Lipari’s historic town before a wine tasting session completes the day.  

Day 4  Lipari to Stromboli  
Take a morning boat trip to Stromboli, home to one of only three active volcanoes in Italy. Spend some free time on the black sand beaches, before walking to the spectacular 'Sciara del Fuoco' in time for sunset. This fiery channel is where the lava outflows sometimes plunge into the sea.  

Day 5  Stromboli  
After a relaxing morning, take a guided excursion to the summit area of Stromboli at nearly 1,000m in altitude. With luck, you may witness a pyrotechnical show of red-hot spurts of molten rock as night falls. Afterwards, descend in darkness in the company of your certified volcano guide.  

Day 6  Stromboli to Mount Etna  
Leave Stromboli behind and take a boat to Milazzo, before transferring to Etna. Tonight is spent at a mountain lodge nearly 2,000m in altitude from where you can enjoy wonderful views across the sea and the east coast of Sicily.  

Day 7  Mount Etna to Catania  
Today, there is a chance to take an optional climb (payable locally) to the summit of Mount Etna. Ascend part of the way by cable car and jeep before tackling the last section on foot. Walk along the rim of the Bove Valley, an extensive depression that opened up thousands of years ago as a result of a huge landslide. Afterwards, transfer to Catania for a farewell dinner with your fellow travellers.  

Day 8  Catania  
Transfer to the airport for your flight home.
