Aeolian Islands Charter Destinations:

Stromboli

Stromboli is one of the world’s only constantly active volcanoes, erupting every 15 to 20 minutes for the past millennia. Each small explosion shoots bursts of magma into the sky and sends rivulets of lava into the sea. In the daytime this is visible as a plume of gas looking like smoke. At night, you can see fiery red fountains shooting upwards. Stromboli is the southernmost of the Aeolian Archipelago, one of Sicily‘s hottest destinations and live the Aeolian Islands Charter vacation, is really a unique experience. Witness the spectacle at night, by the sea, is a unique experience, in a place where it’s possible to breathe a powerful atmosphere that the volcano transmit to human beings.
Navigating, you let yourself be enchanted by the Sciara del Fuoco, the steep slope of the volcano, which throws purple lava and incandescent lapilli, which fell into the sea, dissolving in clouds of steam.
You can refresh in the cool waters of Ginostra, that can be reached only be sea and you arrive in the harbor of Ficogrande, to visit the village of Stromboli.

Salina

Salina, the second largest Island of the Aeolian Archipelago, known as the Emerald Island, or the green pearl, is instantly recognizable by its two twin volcanic cones. Fossa delle Felci is almost 1000 meters high.
These volcanic cones are covered with a green cloak, made up of the Malvasia vineyards.
You will stop at the spectacular bay of Pollara, manned by Scoglio Faraglione and enclosed in the reddish cliff, near Filo di Branda and Punta Perciato.
After crossing the cliff of Capo Faro, you moor in the touristic port of Santa Maria Salina, pretty village close to the Church of SS. Maria Addolorata (1853 dated).
This enchanting hamlet ends in the Rinella Bay, that includes a little and characteristic fishing village and the only sandy beach of the island.

Vulcano

Vulcano, that will still emits sulfur vapors, it’s extremely easy to reach from Milazzo, the main port for the Aeolian Archipelago.
