Trip Overview

Sicily is more popular than ever.  Why? Well, thank you White Lotus but the landscape is gorgeous, the people are friendly and history runs deep (beyond the God Father!) Sicily offers great hiking and climbing and incredible seafood.  We have been running sailing trips in Sicily since before White Lotus and have always loved Sicily.

Our sailing trips visit both of the incredible archipelago’s of Sicily: the Aeolian Islands and the Egadi Islands. Both are stunning areas to sail and explore.  Come see for yourself!  Sailing trips are 7 days but we encourage you to add days before sailing to hike on Mt. Etna, explore Taormina etc.  We also like to add an excursion to MALTA after sailing.  Malta is a 90 minute ferry ride from Sicily and well worth exploring. 

When do we go?

Mid May to end of September.  All trips are 7 days, Saturday to Saturday.

We offer 2 types of trips:

1 .  Barebones ~ we book the yacht, Skipper and hostess for you and you meet them on the your first day of your sailing week and spend the week with them. 

2.  Guided ~ a fully guided trip includes a Mountain Spirits guide on the trip with you.  We start with a couple of days of hiking on the mainland before the sailing adventure. Once on the trip, we manage all the logistics for you, lead the way on the hikes, etc, so that you can relax and enjoy your holiday.
