Full description

Take a tour of Stromboli and Panarea, both belonging to the Aeolian Archipelago. Enjoy this unique chance to see volcanic eruptions and learn the history of these ancient islands.

On a private motorboat equipped with toilets and bar, arrive at Panarea onto Calajunco Bay and the small Zimmari Beach. Take in the quiet beauty of these stunning beaches as you explore the second smallest of the islands. Meander along its winding streets and gravel beaches, taking in the perfect Sicilian backdrop.  Sail around the rocks in front of Panarea and then proceed to Stromboli, home to one of Italy’s 3 active volcanoes. Constantly active, you will be able to see the eruptions from the sea and the many viewing points on the island. This spectacular phenomenon has given the island the nickname of 'Lighthouse of the Mediterranean'. After looking over the small village of Ginostra from the sea, you have the chance to explore the historical center of San Vincenzo until sunset. Back on board guests sail out to sea to watch the dramatic eruptions of the Sciara del Fuoco, fire slide, against the night’s sky.

Bathing at the foot of a volcano and then seeing it pour lava is impressive

The first part is hard. Palmarés has a very small beach and far from the port, a limited number of restaurants are very hot and many people arrived at the same time (several boats full) which implies that if you do not bring food the best thing you can do is just set foot in land is looking for a place to eat. But it is worth paying this toll for the subsequent experience of reaching the island of Stromboli, bathing on the black beach at the foot of the volcano .. Tips. Be ready for boarding soon to go on the upper deck of the ship. Especially in the last section that you will see the eruptions. Do not catch macarronada. You will be eating school macaroons with reduced visibility while the volcano show takes place outside. Take sandwiches or buy arancinas or similar before in the boat bar. The organization is really good. Of course, there are many people and if in Spain the rows do not go very well, in Italy they are directly riots. Patience worth the pain

Very late and very overloaded with tourists

A good excursion, but an hour late, and a lack of consistency in the presentation of "protected" islands which require an additional eco-tax of 5 euros per person in cash while the island is covered with waste and the boats of tourists pile up polluting. Despite everything, the places remain beautiful and the Stromboli impressive.

The tour guide Alexandria was great! She told different things along the way in Italian, English and German. We first went to Panarea, which was really nice. We had 2 hours to walk around and visited the prehistoric village. Next was de island Stromboli with the beautiful black beatches. Here we could walk around for about 3 hours. Our tour guide organised a little tour and showed us the highlights of the island. When we were on the boat again we went to the other site of the island and saw an amazing sunset and a lot of little errutions of the vulcano Stromboli. It was a really great day!
