Full description

Spend the day on a memorable boat excursion through the Aeolian Islands. Enjoy the afternoon and evening exploring quaint villages and seeing stunning landscapes of the Mediterranean.

Meet in Lipari and aboard your boat to begin your excursion through the Aeolian Islands. Have impressive views as you go along the pumice quarries and Monte Rosa. Head towards the island of Panarea, the smallest of the Aeolian islands. Admire the beautiful bay of Cala Junco before docking and have some free time to wander around the village.

After time on Panarea, resume your boat excursion along Basiluzzo, the largest islet of Panarea, and the village of Ginostra before reaching the port of Stromboli. Arrive in Stromboli and be overwhelmed by the wild colors of nature. From the green scrub of the Mediterranean to the black volcanic landscape, from the blue frame of the sea to the white architecture of the island, the imagery of the island is one you won't forget. Have some free time to visit Stromboli and when the sun goes down, cruise around the islet of Strombolicchio. At dusk have your breath taken away as the active volcano magnifies its natural sounds in the dark of the evening.  Go along the Sciara del Fuoco before returning to Lipari.

The excursion was very good but we were promised a tasting of a glass of wine which we did not have, no one on board speaks French it would be good if at least the boarding and disembarkation announcements were made in English in French because on the way back at night we got off one stop before at the wrong port but on the right island, we ended up by bus.

The trip to Panaera and Stromboli is recommended. Very good organization and met all expectations! Stromboli also played along and was active. The only missing information was that it is possible to swim from the boat in front of Panaera for a short time. And it is advisable to be back at the ship a few minutes before the announced departure times. It likes to start a little earlier. A sweater or something similar is also recommended for the return journey.

The boat was lovely, big and clean. However the guide didn’t speak English at all, so we had to ask other foreign passengers who could speak English to interpret for us. Approx 1 hour in Panarea, so we ate. Then 2 hours free time in Stromboli- so we ate again, and swam in the sea. Mass bundle for when the boat arrived at Stromboli as all the passengers wanted a seat up too, for a good view. Captain/marina personnel just shouting at everyone in Italian - no idea what they were saying. The lava display was just so disappointing- it was like someone had lit a candle at the top of the crater and that was it….. no lava flows down the side of the volcano, no eruptions ….. honestly the marketeers have done a superb job. Not just this company, all over Lipari, 100’s of stalls showing massive eruptions, lava flows, etc. not one of them advising you you may. It see anything - as it’s down to Mother Nature. Left feeling extremely disappointed to be honest
