Aeolian Islands: Active Volcano Tour

3. Aeolian Islands: Active Volcano Tour

Experience a full-day tour of the Aeolian Islands, which form one of the most active geological structures in the Mediterranean area. The Archipelago of the Aeolian Islands consists of seven exquisite islands off the coast of Sicily - Lipari, Panarea, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Alicudi, and Filicudi - in addition to smaller islets and giant boulders. They all emerge from an uncontaminated sea, created by still-active volcanoes (Stromboli and Vulcano), and blessed by a savage beauty.

The tour started 30mins late, but once we got hiking it was great. The tour guide spoke English and Italian and was very friendly, knowledgeable and responsible. The hike was nice and the view of the volcano was of course spectacular. The hike back down in darkness was quite an experience as well. I would recommend shoes with good grip and a light jacket or sweater against the wind up there.

Very good, you absolutely have to do it to enjoy Stromboli. In addition, the guide provides valuable geological information. Thanks again !!!

Une expérience unique qui vaut vraiment le coup d’être vécue ! Bon encadrement de la part des guides! Paysages à couper le souffle

The guide walking speed was quite fast - only for advanced hikers. The last 10 min was really steep. No pee stops on the way

After 2 hours of effort the reward with 5-6 explosions during the hour that we stay at the top
