This experience, in a nutshell

Sailing among the enchanting Aeolian Islands aboard a sailboat during a summer week is an experience like no other. The crystal clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea lull the boat, while the light wind pushes the sails, taking you to paradisiacal destinations. The feeling of freedom is palpable, and the horizon opens up to breathtaking views.



Each island presents its own unique beauty, with rugged coastlines, hidden bays, and white sandy beaches bathed by turquoise waters. The sunlight paints golden hues on the volcanic cliffs, creating a picture of natural beauty that enchants every eye.



Life on board will be one of peace and serenity. The days pass peacefully between relaxing sailing, anchoring in secluded bays and swimming in transparent waters. The nights are magical, with the gentle sound of the waves lulling you to sleep and the starry sky reflecting off the sea.

Evenings ashore in the picturesque towns of the islands offer the opportunity to savor the local cuisine, full of Mediterranean flavors. The scent of traditional dishes mixes with the salty air, creating an unforgettable dining experience.

Our itinerary

Our trip starts here:

Furnari.

Check-in: 2:00 PM

Our trip ends here:

Furnari.

Check-out: 8:00 AM

Leg 1

SATURDAY - Portorosa - Vulcano

Embarkation in the afternoon in the marina of Portorosa, Furnari (Messina).

Once the galley is filled and we take our seats in the cabin we are ready to set sail: we leave Sicily behind us and with a fresh crosswind we sail towards Vulcano which welcomes us from its always active crater. We spend the night in Vulcano in the bay.


Leg 2

SUNDAY - Vulcano - Panarea

After a good breakfast of mulberry granita.

We head towards Panarea, stopping in Lipari for a refreshing swim under the pumice quarries. Visit to the most fashionable of the islands and night at anchor


Leg 3

MONDAY - Panarea - Stromboli

After enjoying the classic granita, bath in the gaseous bubbles of Lisca Bianca and stop in Basiluzzo. We head towards the Sciara del Fuoco, on the side of the island of Stromboli where the volcanic materials emitted in the eruptive explosions from the main crater of the volcano accumulate.

The spectacle that Stromboli offers us with its continuous eruptions is unique and thrilling. 


Leg 4

TUESDAY - Stromboli - Salina

Leaving Stromboli we head to Salina which is the greenest island of the Aeolian Islands and, for those who love the mountains, the extinct volcano of Monte Fossa delle Felci with its 962 meters is an irresistible challenge.

Stops and swims while visiting all the most beautiful bays, such as Lingua and Capofaro. Evening on land to taste the famous granita and bread cunzatu at Alfredo in Lingua.


Leg 5

WEDNESDAY - Salina - Filicudi

Leaving Santa Marina di Salina we stop for a refreshing swim in Pollara on the western side of Salina, the natural set of the film The Postman. The morning is spent diving into the sea, relaxing in the sun and walking on the island. In the afternoon, departure to Filicudi and night in Pecorini a mare, famous for the aperitif at the Saloon.

Leg 6

THURSDAY - Filicudi - Lipari

After breakfast, swim at the Canna and the Grotta del Bue Marino.

Detour to Alicudi and then to Lipari for the night. We take advantage of the stop in Lipari for an excursion to the Castle of Lipari which stands on the sea, in a rich archaeological area. We are in the upper part of the city and from there you can dominate the entire bay of Marina Lunga and Marina Corta and the lower town. Night at the mooring so you can go ashore.

Leg 7

FRIDAY - Lipari - Portorosa

We stop for a swim in Vulcano, a mulberry granita while the more daring decide to climb the volcano. Back on board, we head towards Gelso, the southern part of the island, where we stop for a swim and for a last goodbye to the islands. Before sunset we set sail again towards Sicily.

Dinner in a

trattoria and overnight stay in Portorosa.


Leg 8

SATURDAY - Portorosa

It's time to say goodbye. Disembarkation is scheduled for 9 a.m., but the desire to get back on the road is very strong. We exchange addresses with our travel companions and leave with the promise of meeting again soon, another sea trip and many other islands are there waiting for us!

Mario was great, flexible to suit is and was happy to change schedule for what we wanted to do and he accommodated us with our six month old baby onboard no issues. Most enquiries I made about taking a baby on said no, so was great to get out and see the Aeolians, spectacular place, beautiful boat, great trip!
