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 '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.

Eine Tour genau wie beschrieben. Mit Renate und Roberto hatten wir einen wunderbaren Ausflug. Renate hat alles mit einer Engelsgeduld in Deutsch, Französisch, Englisch und italienisch erklärt… Die Inseln bieten natürlich kaum Sehenswürdigkeiten- klar, es sind alles kleine Fischerorte. Dafür lohnt es sich um so mehr die wundervollen Buchten zum Baden zu nutzen. Glasklares erfrischendes Nass und maximal 5 Personen am Strand. Badeschuhe sollte man sich allerdings gönnen. Es erleichtert einem, an den meisten Stränden Sizziliens, das Leben doch sehr! Die Preise auf den Inseln sind wenn man sich mit einem Snack oder einer Pizza zufrieden geben kann höher als am Festland aber dennoch fair. Restaurants in Panamera sind generell in der gehobenen Kategorie und ihren Preis wert. Die n man das machen muss ist natürlich jedem selbst überlassen! Der krönende Abschluss ist das Feuerwerk des Stromboli nach dem Sundowner. Fazit- entspricht exakt der Beschreibung- würde ich wieder machen! 24.5.‘22

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.
