Live all 360 degrees of the sea, spending a week on a cruise on a beautiful Turkish Caique boat, a boat characterized by its width, considerable living space and high levels of comfort while at sea.
Day 1: Boarding at 17.00 in Milazzo. Welcome drinks and allocation of cabins. Free visit to Milazzo. Dinner on board.
Day 2: Breakfast and departure from Milazzo to Stromboli; arrival in the late morning. Excursion on the island: from the harbour you will walk through the narrow streets of the village until you reach the ''Ufficio delle guide", the starting point for the ascent to the volcano. The route follows the coast and then begins to climb, becoming increasingly steep as you reach the spectacular summit. After about an hour you will start to head back to the boat along a route that takes 2 hours. The tour lasts around 6 hours, is not particularly difficult and is accessible to all (8 km, at 800 metres above sea level). During the excursion, if you want, you can ask the guide to make a stop at the 'Sciara del Fuoco' where you can watch the activity of the volcano and have a picnic. Alternatively you can take a boat tour of the north coast of the island in order to watch the eruptions of the volcano. Dinner on board while sailing to the island of Panarea (2 hours). It is very rare to spend the night in Stromboli, because the water is very deep and it is difficult to anchor. The captain will decide whether to anchor or not based on the weather and sea conditions that day.
Day 3: Breakfast on board. Excursion of about 4 hours, to the summit of the island of Panarea, the Timpone del Corvo. At 421 metres this summit offers a magnificent view. Picnic and then down to the small port of San Pietro. Returning to the boat you will pass a picturesque route characterized by the typical white houses with blue shutters. Swim in the clear waters of Cala Junco, located at the foot of a prehistoric village. Dinner and overnight stay on board.
Day 4: Breakfast and sail to Lisca Nera, Basiluzzo and Datillo, uniquely-shaped deserted islands created by a cataclysmic earthquake, where you can observe the underwater fumaroles. From there you will sail towards the island of Salina and visit the village of Santa Marina, where a bus will take you into the centre of the island, between the two volcanoes of Monte Porri and Fossa delle Felci. From the resort of Valdichiesa you will climb uphill towards the summit of Fossa (3 hours). From here you will have the chance to see the panoramic views of all the islands, before descending the mountain along a shaded path (6-7 hour walk at 960 metres above sea level). Dinner and overnight stay.
Day 5: Breakfast. Departure for the tour of the island of Salina, where we will stop for a swim at Pollara.
