Brief description of the holiday
Which holiday is more in the name of nature than this one?
THURSDAY - Portorosa
Check-in from 8 pm.
The boat is moored in the port of Portorosa located near the town of Furnari (ME) , reachable from Catania airport by car - via the motorway - or by train.
FRIDAY - Lipari
Purchase and boarding of the galley, bow on Lipari (about four hours of navigation). Lipari is the largest island of the Aeolian Islands and here trekking or biking enthusiasts can reach observation points from which to enjoy views of rare beauty , making excursions to the hilly hamlets, and then climbing Monte S. Angelo , and visiting the quarries. of "kaolin" .
There is also the possibility of making the circumnavigation of the island, arriving as far as Porto Pignataro , a place where we will spend the night, located in the opposite direction to that of departure.
For those who love history , Lipari also has a museum of extraordinary interest, full of finds that testify that since prehistoric times the island and the entire archipelago were inhabited by primitive peoples, often at war for the conquest of precious territories rich in raw materials to be marketed.
SATURDAY - Salina
After a coastal navigation, we will arrive in Salina . Here off-road enthusiasts , on bikes, can climb the mountain "Fossa delle Felci" a slope that reaches almost 1,000 meters. The ascent takes place on a path surrounded by ferns and lush woods. At the top an incredible panorama awaits you : the entire archipelago of the Aeolian Islands, nestled between sky and sea.
SUNDAY - Vulcano
Last stop, we will reach the island of Vulcano . Here the ascent to the crater (not particularly demanding), the visit of the Levante bay , characterized by sulphurous waters and black sands, a large bay made up of very thin black sand of volcanic nature, will be of considerable interest.
We leave in the afternoon, three hours to reach Portorosa , check-out at 20.
Ah! I forgot ... those wishing to find on site the bikes for the excursions planned both in Lipari and in Salina there is the possibility of renting directly on board .

Other important information
Also this year we will sail in compliance with the rules laid down in terms of prevention and safety, the boat's environments and accessories supplied will be disinfected at each crew change with special equipment .
To get on board you need to have a swab with negative results made within 48 hours of boarding ; also required for those in possession of a green pass and vaccinated
For single travelers there is the possibility of having a double cabin for exclusive use , paying a supplement of 30% (generally a 50% surcharge applies).
A cheap holiday, immersed in the sparkle of the sea, away from crowds, noise and constraints, in the much desired relaxation as ever in this unusual period.
The cost of the Starter Pack is
€ 90 per person for single quote bookings
€ 300 per full boat booking
It will be payable upon boarding and includes:
- Overnight in the port of Lipari and Portorosa
- Diesel fuel for the boat and petrol for the tender outboard
- Dinghy and outboard motor
- Cooking gas
- Sheets and towels (face & guest)
- Use of the paddle
The boat, comfortable and generous 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 soft luggage and clothing that includes a hat, sweatshirts, a waterproof jacket and specific equipment for trekking and mountain biking.
For those wishing to find on-site bikes for the excursions planned both in Lipari and in Salina, there is the possibility of renting directly on board.
HOW TO REACH THE PORT:
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.

Or by car along the A20 motorway
