Sail among the most beautiful islands of the Aeolian volcanic archipelago


What could be better than a traditional gulet to explore the magnificence of an archipelago made up of 7 islands classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site? Located off the coast of Sicily, these islands of volcanic origin called "Aeolian Islands" owe their name to the Greek god Aeolus, guardian of the winds. During your 8-day cruise, you will discover 6 islands with very different terrains and atmospheres.

Cruise Highlights

  • Discover Stromboli and its impressive crater
  • Swimming in the translucent water of the "Bue Marino" cave...
  • Visit the prehistoric village of Cala Junco

Your Cabin

Cabin

Kaptan Yilmaz has 8 cabins (including 2 triples) that can accommodate up to 16 passengers. All cabins are air-conditioned and have one double bed or two twin beds, storage lockers and a bathroom with private toilet.

Itinerary of your cruise

The captain proposes a complete itinerary, with one or two stopovers per day. These land stops will allow you to criss-cross volcanic islands full of surprises (lava flows, mud baths, prehistoric villages...). With their volcanoes still active, Vulcano and Stromboli regularly let smoke escape. You will have the opportunity to explore the seabed in transparent water, perfectly suited to snorkeling.

Sicily

DAY 1 : Milazzo
The captain wants you to meet him at the marina at 6:00. After dropping off your belongings in your cabin, you will be invited to a welcome cocktail. You will get to know the crew and other passengers. Afterwards, you will attend a briefing on the safety instructions to be followed during navigation. The deckhand will cast off around 7 pm and the gulet will head for the protected bay of Saint Antonio. You will have dinner and spend the night at anchor after taking your first dip into the turquoise waters.

DAY 2 : Milazzo - Basiluzzo - Stromboli
The crew hoists the sails and sets course north early. You will stop for lunch in front of the small island of Basiluzzo and its imposing cliffs, some of which reach more than 170 meters high above sea level. You then anchor opposite the island of Stromboli. Upon arrival, you can go around the island, visit its village or climb the 900 meters of vertical drop that leads to the crater (about 4 hours walk). For your dinner, we suggest the Observatory's restaurant. Its location allows you to admire the volcano and its activity. Night at anchor.

DAY 3 : Stromboli - Lisca Bianca - Panarea
This morning, you head towards the island of Panarea. During the crossing, you will be ale to admire the famous lava flows "sciara del fuoco" on the flank of Stromboli. You will stop at Lisca Bianca to swim in the middle of the underwater fumaroles. After lunch, the skipper will head for the bay of Milazzese. Once ashore, you will visit the prehistoric Bronze Age village of Cala Junco. Night at anchor.

DAY 4 : Panarea - Lipari
In the morning you set sail for Lipari and its famous pumice mountains. You will be very quickly surprised by the clarity of the waters and its white sand that almost reminds you of the Caribbean. You then head towards Sotto Monastero and disembark at the Corta marina. This is the perfect starting point to visit the St. Bartholomew's Cathedral before going to taste the traditional cannoli's. For your free dinner, we recommend the "Home Restaurant" and its terrace on the sea (by reservation only).

DAY 5 : Lipari - Filicudi
How about starting the day with a refreshing swim? The captain hoists the sails and takes you to the west of Filicudi, to the "Bue Marino" cave and its huge 85 meter high rock called La Canna. Take out the flippers and masks to explore this wonderful place! After having lunch in this postcard setting, sail to the village of Pecorini a Mare. You can walk around and admire the sunset. Night at anchor.

DAY 6 : Filicudi - Salina
You raise the anchor and set the helm east, towards the island of Salina. You make a stop on the famous Pollara beach (filming location of the illustrious film "The Postman"). Then, you set sail again for a few hours and reach the port of Salina (subject to availability). When you disembark, you will have the opportunity to make excursions to the island with its many vineyards or to explore it at your own pace (walk around Salina; climb Mount Fossa delle Felci; taste local wines; taste Alfredo's delicious granitas). Overnight on board.

DAY 7 : Salina - Vulcano - Milazzo
Today the boat sails towards the island of Vulcano and its impressive volcano (almost 500 meters high). The most courageous will be able to climb its crater (an easier climb than for the Stromboli). After lunch, it will be a time to return back to Milazzo. You will make the last stop for a swim at Capo Milazzo. The boat docks at the port of Milazzo between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. You will have free time to roam the city based on your desires. Dinner at your leisure and night at the port.

DAY 8 : Milazzo
You disembark at Milazzo after breakfast around 9:00. What if you extend your stay in Sicily and discover the sublime cities of Palermo and Catania?

    Experience inoubliable dans les îles éoliennes !

    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à bord de cette caïque: bateau impeccable, équipage adorable et le circuit génial. Un must pour découvrir ces îles en toute serenite alliant baignade et visite des îles. La cuisine à bord était également remarquable !

    TROIS PETITS TOURS ET PUIS S'EN VONT

    Bien sur, les volcans des Lipari s'animent quand ils le veulent. Hélas ils n'étaient pas très actifs. La mer calme et le beau temps ont compensés. Le cuisinier et service très bien et capitaine affable et prévenant. Pour 16 passagers assez de place et même sans parler italien, ou si peu, tout s'est déroulé au mieux.
