Family holiday based on the Aeolian Islands and Sicily with volcanoes, water, walks and adventure
This active family holiday is a week of island hopping, water fun, short walks and hands-on geography lessons. From Sicily we transfer by hydrofoil to the island of Lipari for 4 nights. Our first island to explore is Vulcano, with its black beaches and hot springs we walk and swim in the warm seas. On Lipari we enjoy a coastal walk with fabulous views over the shimmering seas and islands and have fun making pizzas at a local restaurant. Our third island is Stromboli, classified as one of the most beautiful, we see the ‘stream of fire’, the smoke and lava which flows from of this ever-active volcano. Every day there is opportunity for swimming in the sea, and also we can kayak or do some SUP’ing on our free day – a popular choice for the children. On holidays ends on mainland Sicily, with a stay at the foot of the smouldering Mount Etna. We have a day to climb to the viewpoint on this famous volcano and an optional visit to the nearby adventure park. With lots to see and do, and plenty of water time for the children, this holiday is in a word...... fantastico!
