Attention to all active travellers - with its sultry weather, dramatic beauty and impressive mix of culture and history, Sicily is an extraordinary destination for nature and culture buffs alike.

From glittering beaches and glamorous seaside haunts to a wild landscape of rocky coves, caves, ancient pilgrim trails and volcanic islands, Sicily offers an exciting diversity of outdoor adventures and cultural experiences.

Immerse yourself in the island’s complex history and outstanding landscapes with a walking holiday taking in an unspoiled coastline of perfect beaches, ancient ruins, Heritage Listed monuments and candy-coloured fishing villages. Discover remnants of ancient history dotted throughout the island and explore the vibrant capital of Palermo with its heady mix of narrow laneways, bustling markets and grand architecture tinged with Roman, Arab and Byzantine influences.

Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims from centuries ago and discover the rugged beauty of inland Sicily when you walk the ancient Via Magna Francigena.

Or jump off the north coast and discover the Aeolian Islands, a stunning World Heritage Listed archipelago of volcanic islands. See Stromboli’s iconic cone and fiery lava trails, relax in thermal hot springs and delightful seaside towns, and hike, swim and snorkel your way along a winding coastline of jagged cliffs, black sand beaches and the brilliant blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Join us as we explore beautiful Sicily on a self guided hiking trip.

Visas

Visas not required for citizens of Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand for up to 90 days in a period of 180 days for all Schengen countries (see www.schengenvisainfo.com/schengen-visa-countries-list/ for countries part of the Schengen). Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area. For all other nationalities and for longer stays in countries covered by the Schengen Agreement (Australian New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders), please contact the relevant embassy. Stays of longer than 90 days in the Schengen area require a long stay visa for the country you are spending most time in. However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.

Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage.
