Tailored to You

In barca per scoprire le 7 isole

Each island has always had a particular appeal, strictly linked to the sea surrounding and protecting it. Live magical adventures on board of a comfortable boat that will let you discover the hidden marine beauties of Salina and the whole archipelago. Beaches that can be accessed only by sea, volcanic eruptions, hidden caves, majestic sea stacks, spectacular views, a seabed full of underwater flora and fauna... they all wait for you, along with the attentive and friendly staff who is ready to support your requests. Swim with the dolphins, follow the route of a sea turtle and admire lava rivers pouring into the sea - the charm of these islands is yours to discover.

Hiking tour dell'Isola Verde

Among the seven islands that are part of the Aeolian archipelago, Salina is considered the Green Island because of its lush vegetation growing on its slope. The Monte Fossa delle Felci e Monte dei Porri nature reserve offers more than 20 nature trails that reveal stunning views and allow you to discover the wild side of this wonderful island. From the mountaintop of Monte Fossa delle Felci, the highest point of the whole archipelago, it is possible to look at the islands, while the sunset creates fascinating light effects. You can have strolls and hike the area while spotting animals and plants typical of Salina and visit places yet unseen.

Wine tasting in cantina

Since 1000 B.C., the first Greek settlers coming from Corinth appreciated the fertile land of our island, as it is the only one in the whole archipelago to have groundwater. Since then, for thousands of years, wine production has been a key element of economic and social development. The vineyards scattered in small areas taken away from the steep volcanic slopes are an exclusive feature that distinguishes us. The result of tradition, development and, above all, love for our land is a wine characterised by all the scents and flavours of our island. Going to the winery and having wine-tasting sessions will give you the chance to experience the unique emotions that the art of “making wine” gives, and will allow you to learn about our story and traditions, the pride of our little community.
