Day 1: Arrive on Stromboli by early afternoon and meet your guides. Enjoy a stroll through the lovely town center or a visit to the black sand beaches. In the early evening hours, hike along Sciara del Fuoco and admire Stromboli’s stunning volcanic eruptions. The lightshow doesn’t stop there. Enjoy dinner with a perfect vantage point for observing the eruptions. D Day 2: After ferrying to the island of Vulcano, get outfitted for your kayaking journey, and explore the beautiful coastline. If you’re ready for more adventure, set out on one of Vulcano’s amazing day hikes before dinner. B, D Day 3: Today you will nearly complete a kayak circumnavigation of Vulcano. This beautiful island is a joy to explore from the water. You’ll stop at beaches along the way to stretch your legs, have lunch in the charming hamlet of Gelso, and luxuriate in Tyrrhenian Sea. B, D Day 4: Today you enjoy beaches on three different Aeolian Islands on a paddle from Vulcano to Lipari to Salina. Set off from Vulcano and explore awesome sea stacks and paddle-through archways enroute to our first beach stop on Lipari. Continue north along Lipari’s west coast through sea caves and rock gardens before making the final crossing to Salina. An amazing full day on the water. B, D Day 5: Explore the wonderful island of Salina by kayak and foot. Circumnavigate the island by kayak over the course of one or two days (weather dependent), and savor your evenings in the marvelous town of Malfa. B, D Day 6: Complete the circumnavigation of Salina and/or embark on stunning hikes. Challenge yourself by scaling Salina’s highest point, Monte Fassa delle Felci (950m), or take it easier by walking the postcard-perfect coastline of Pollara (set of the film Il Postino). B Day 7: Return to Vulcano by kayak and enjoy the final evening together in these awe-inspiring volcanic islands. Soak up the sunset during our celebratory dinner to conclude a week of intrepid adventure. B, D Day 8: We make our way to the ferry terminal on the northeast tip of Vulcano. From there, we will say goodbyes and depart for connections on the mainland. B *This is our intended itinerary. As with any adventure, factors outside our control may alter the itinerary.
