Brief description of the holiday
A different New Year?
Book on the Aeolian Islands, a holiday dedicated to sailing, trekking and, why not, even swimming if the temperatures allow it.
Check-in Wednesday 28 December from 19:00 in the Portorosa marina .
Departure on the 29th for the island of Vulcano , the southernmost of the archipelago. For those who love trekking, an excursion to the crater or to other places with the possibility of a guide , for those who want to go around the island more comfortably, there is the possibility of hiring a vehicle.
On the 30th and 31st towards Lipari . The island, the largest of the Aeolian Islands, offers long panoramic walks even here, possibly with a guide.
New Year's Eve will be spent in the port of Pignataro where we will celebrate the arrival of 2023 with dinner on board, fires and music .
On January 1st 2023 everyone will be in Panarea . The island in winter is almost deserted and the emotional impact it arouses compared to those who visited it in the summer is totally different. Trekking enthusiasts will be able to circumnavigate the island discovering places that, in the summer, are inaccessible in the heat.
On January 2nd route to Salina , the daring will be able to visit the Fossa delle Felci a mountain, the highest of the Aeolian Islands, from which you can admire the seven islands, which sometimes seem suspended in the sky.
On the 3rd afternoon, after a nice sail and stops in various bays, we return to Portorosa . Check-out at 18.
NB: The program may be subject to variations due to weather conditions

The comfortable and generous boat in the kit of accessories, provides, for the most "demanding": desalinator (no limitation for the water of the services) and generator (no problem for recharging users, such as cell phones, potable and hairdryer), for the most "sailors": gennaker and spinnaker, for the more "comfortable": cockpit with cushions and sundeck at the bow and, for the more "technological" PC-TV-WIFI.
WHAT TO BRING:
I recommend a soft luggage to be able to stow it without problems and clothing that includes a wool hat, sweatshirts & sweaters, a waterproof jacket and specific trekking equipment for enthusiasts.

The Marina di Portorosa (Furnari), within a tourist village, is located in a strategic position, and is easily reachable from both Catania and Palermo airport with a shuttle bus service.
