Mount Etna Volcanic Islands 29/09/2017
Amazing Aeolian experience
What a super time we had with our two fellow walkers and the fabulous Federica. The islands are beautiful and the volcanic experience was magic. The walking was just challenging enough to give me a sense of achievement, and never so challenging I felt it was too much, Federica (our guide) was informative and fun. She looked after us brilliantly, but the whole trip still felt like an adventure. A great adventure - this was a week I will always remember!

Up Close and Personal With The Power of Nature
There are no other places in Europe where you can experience the real power and majesty of live volcanoes like Stromboli and Etna. Hiking both of them is a tremendous feeling. When you add in great scenery, great food and a great guide, you have an unbeatable mix. There are not so many holidays where you come away feeling privileged ( as well as happy) to have had the experience but this is one of those.

Mount Etna walking holiday
Combination of nice walks and some swimming in the sea. What I enjoyed was the attention to detail and not feeling part of a herd!

The most splendid trip
This is just to say it was a most splendid trip, flawlessly planned and designed and a great delight. Everything worked perfectly and we enjoyed fine weather. The Aeolian Islands were exquisite: Vulcano, wreathed in sulphurous emanations; Salina, green and luxuriant, Lipar; rich in history and glistening with obsidian; Stromboli, rumbling with fire and brimstone and a great night-time ascent followed by Panarea, a most beautiful island of Alma-Tadema-like settings in sun and colour. Etna on the mainland was very impressive. We climbed to the summit at 10,000ft from the Refugio Sapienza which itself was an extremely well-appointed refuge. Catania and Siracusa were both interesting and photogenic. A very fine educational and interesting holiday!

The trip was extremely well organised by Alessandro whose extensive range of local contacts made all the difference. He was a very knowledgeable and comparable guide and we cant' speak too highly of him.

The views were incredible and well worth the hike to the summits. Each summit being totally different and getting higher across the week, I felt a wonderful sense of achievement each time.
