Enjoy an eight-day cruise in a 21-cabin yacht around beautiful Malta, Sicily and the Aeolian Islands, swimming and snorkelling off secluded beaches, immersing yourself in the rich historical heritage, and enjoying wine-tasting and volcano trekking

While Malta and Sicily are well known Mediterranean destinations, with ever-intriguing cultural heritage, the lesser-known Aeolian Islands will amaze you with their beautiful beaches and cobalt-blue seas. This volcanic archipelago, off the north-eastern coast of Sicily, features the seven main islands of Vulcano, Lipari, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alicudi, all lapped by the warm waters of the Med.

You'll be cruising in the yacht Harmony G offered a personalised service you just can't get with larger cruise ships, and allowed access to smaller ports and secluded coves and beaches. The yacht features a spacious lounge, indoor and outdoor dining-room, and ample deck space for sunbathing and cocktails at sunset. The Captain will drop anchor at secluded bays and beautiful uninhabited islands where, weather permitting, guests can enjoy swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.
