This week long trip offers the opportunity to explore the dramatic volcanic landscapes of Sicily's Aeolian Islands and Mt Etna. The seven islands that make up the archipelago are named as UNESCO World heritage sites and you can see why; black sand beaches, thermal springs and striking active volcanoes. Here we trek on Vulcano, Lipari and Stromboli and take in the culture and beauty of the area. On Sicily mainland we trek on Mount Etna (3350m), the highest active volcano in Europe with its diverse landscape. Lava flows and vast plains of black sand at the summit contrast with the green and fertile lower slopes. This trip to Sicily offers a great mix of interesting walks, optional challenging treks, town visits and great food - all in a week!
