Sailing and Volcanoes: trekking and sailing in the Aeolian archipelago
Adventure within adventure: a unique way to walk on the paths of the Italian volcanoes, moving between the islands on a sailboat, always in contact with nature. A sea voyage to discover the land.
Without sacrificing comfort, but really far from the world we are used to. We offer a catamaran trip: comfortable cabins, large common areas and relaxation areas, for a well-deserved rest after excursions and ascents.
