After waking up to a lovely yoga session at breakfast we will take a boat to the tiny island of Panarea for a quick stop and stroll before we continue on to the star attraction: Stromboli. When on Stromboli we will meet our hiking guide and start the climb up the black sandy trail on the western side of the volcano. As the sun starts to hang low in the sky, we will “ski” down the volcanic earth, feeling the unique sensation of our footsteps glide down the fine soil. As the sunsets we will board the boat to see the natural smoke and lava “show” locals call the “Sciara del Fuoco.” During our return to Lipari we will have a “maccheronata” pasta party on the boat before docking back at Lipari around 10:00 p.m.
