Sicily & Aeolian islands

Volcano walking tour: Etna & Stromboli.

We invite you to discover Sicily’s volcano Etna, Stromboli on the same-named island and the dead crater Vulcano. During your walking week you explore volcanoes in all facets: you walk to the volcanoes or you rent a boat to cruise around the islands to have the best views onto those fascinating formations. The climb onto Etna is definitely an unforgettable impression and really a highlight. Taormina will bewitch you! It is located beautifully high above the sea with its narrow alleyways, Greek amphitheatre and fantastic views onto the coast, palms and orange trees and the Etna.

Perfekte Planung und toller Guide
Die Planung und das Timing an den Ankunftsorten war perfekt. Alle Transfers und Touren haben gepasst. Unser Guide Fabio war der Hammer. Mit Leib und Seele Guide, hat er jede Pflanze und jeden Stein mit viel Herzblut erklärt. Das ist nicht Beruf, sondern Berufung. Unterkünfte waren gut und sehr gut, das Frühstück, meistens weit über dem italienischen Durchschnitt. Wir kommen definitiv wieder!

Sehr gut organisierte Reise mit viel eigenem Gestaltungsspielraum
Transfers und Hotels waren sehr gut ausgesucht und organisiert. Innerhalb der Organisation blieb noch viel eigener Gestaltungsspielraum für die Freizeitgestaltung. Für den Stomboli benötigt man jedoch Kondition und sollte ein halbwegs geübter Bergwanderer sein (900 Höhenmeter in ca. 3 Stunden). Die enthaltenen Touren mit Tourguide waren hervorragend geleitet und geführt und gingen auf die jeweiligen Wünsche und Anregungen soweit wie irgendwie möglich ein. Diese Reise war ein wirkliches Highlight.
