An explosive walking holiday in Sicily's Aeolian Islands featuring the volcanoes of Etna and Stromboli. Lying off the coast of north-east Sicily, the rocky Aeolian Islands are fringed with black sand beaches and decorated by scattered white-washed houses. Using ferry transport to travel between these islands, the trekking begins on Vulcano where the walking leads us to the crater rim of the volcano and also visits its hot springs. Spending 2 nights on Lipari, we then take the hydrofoil to Salina where a good, steady trek reaches the high point at Fossa delle Felci (960m./3149ft.). Next, we turn our attention towards walking on fiery Stromboli which should provide an unforgettable highlight of the holiday - volcanic activity permitting. Returning to Sicily, we have 2 days of walking on Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe (3350m./1099ft.). Staying at a hotel at the foot of the volcano, we explore its most recent lava flows as well as walking to the top for far-reaching views. If you are looking for an exciting Mediterranean walking holiday, then volcano trekking in Sicily is sure to ignite you!
