The islands situated in the Ionian Sea off the West Coast of Greece bring strong, warm winds perfect for sailing. They are traditionally referred to as the Heptanese islands as a reference to the seven main islands. Stretches of sandy beaches, fragrant pine forest, and rocky capes against a backdrop of brilliant sunshine and crystal blue water provide an infinite variety of scenic beauty.The cultures and people are as varied as the settings, luring visitors from all over the world.
The Aeolian Islands offer the stuff of legends - literally; birth place of myths and home to ruins as old as civilization, this journey offers Lipari's Castle, Salina's twin craters, Panarea's world-class chic, Stromboli's active Volcano, and Vulcano's epic mud baths. A sailing vacation with the Sailing Collective is a unique and exhilarating new way to travel. With a mix of sailing and land adventures, a sailing vacation is an alternative way of seeing secluded locations with a new perspective.
Sailing Collective provisions each boat with local foods and produce. Your Sailing Collective chef is incredibly talented and can handle the group's needs with ease. We are all about participation and learning, so if you'd like to help, just ask and we'll get you involved! Collective groups may choose to dine out more times than scheduled if the group or individuals choose.
Please ensure your passport is valid for the period of travel and for six months after you return. Your passport name must match the name on the flight ticket otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid.
It is the responsibility of each individual to ensure relevant visas are obtained where necessary. The Sailing Collective cannot be held responsible for refusal of entry or travel due to lack of visas. If you are in any doubt please contact your Embassy for full details.
Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes such as flip flops that you can get wet if we are landing on a beach.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style.
