Not for harden walkers

If you like your walking do not do this trip , its says on the brochure moderate/ challenging ,i have done far harder moderate walks than this one , saying that the stromboli trip was cancelled due to bad weather so maybe that may have been a decent walk who knows !!!

We would like to thank Salvatore for his feedback, but we are very sorry to hear that the walks on the trip were not as challenging as he would have hoped. We regret that Salvatore was unable to complete the Stromboli excursion due to bad weather as this is one of the more challenging walks of the week. Taking into consideration recent client feedback, the grading has been changed to moderate (rather than moderate/challenging) for next year’s departures and extra walks have been added to the itinerary; we hope this will help avoid similar disappointment.

Incredible week in the Aeolian Islands of Sicily. Hiking was incredibly beautiful and quite challenging at times. The views were extraordinary. Each meal was better than the last. Trip was incredibly organized and well-planned. Sicilian wine is so delicious, and the pizza and eggplant was outstanding.

Enjoyable but misgraded

This is an enjoyable trip in a beautiful part of the world. A reasonably fit person would have no difficulty on this trip - don't be put off by the grading. I would have said leisurely/moderate rather than moderate/challenging. Note that there is a lot of free time on the trip - which you can spend sightseeing, lazing on the beach or in a bar. I have thought quite a bit about how to grade the trip but in the end I have given it an overall grade of Good. I have marked it down because I feel the difficulty grading is too low and without the optional walks it would pretty much be a sightseeing/beach holiday.

We have been in contact with Patrick on an individual basis, however we regret that Patrick found the walking on the trip to be less demanding than he had anticipated for a tour graded as moderate/challenging. Whilst the grading does take into consideration the optional volcano walks, we appreciate that the certified volcano guides at Etna and Stromboli usually hike slowly for safety reasons and to allow clients to view any lava explosions, so further to recent feedback we have decided to include the Stromboli walk as part of the itinerary and also lower the trip to moderate for next season’s departures.

This trip is a "once in a lifetime" experience. You can see and feel the energy of the sea and the active volcanoes. Add the food and wine experience. It becomes the perfect combination of challenge and pleasure. Je n'oublierai jamais ce voyage qui m'a permis de voir des volcans en action tout en profitant de l'Italie a son meilleur.
