Live la dolce vita as you set sail to the incredible volcanic archipelago known as the Aeolian Islands. Just off the coast of Sicily, this cluster of seven islands were named by the Greek settlers after the god of wind. This UNESCO World Heritage site’s volcanic origins have left it with a dramatic legacy of black sand beaches, smouldering craters and jagged rocky coastlines. These hard-to-reach islands, two of which still have active volcanoes, are surrounded by turquoise and cobalt blue waters that are mostly only accessible by private boat. On this incredible journey, you’ll snorkel in magical blue coves, explore ruins and abandoned villages, feast on fresh seafood and homemade Italian cuisine in picturesque traditional villages, get to know friendly locals and maybe even spot a celebrity or two. But best of all - seize the opportunity to hike up a live volcano to see lava up close and personal, at night!
