Frequently Asked Questions

    • Is this tour a self guided tour or group tour?

      This trip is actually a self guided trip, so there is no group you can join.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a surcharge?

      If you are a solo traveller, you need to pay for the single supplement.

    • Where can I find more detailed information about this tour?

      A trip note - which contains essential information about your trip will be given to you. Information such as the daily itinerary, where to meet on the first day, what time the trip starts, how to get to the joining point hotel, included activities, visa information, etc will be mentioned in there. Please contact us for this.

    • Do i do the treks on my own independently?

      You do the treks solo, so you are free to organise your day as you wish. Except on the days where you join the guided volcano walk on Stromboli.

    • What is the physical fitness level required on this trip?

      Our partner reassures us that the group is often comprised of people with varying walk experience and fitness, some may only be occasional walkers. As such the guides walk at a slow pace to best suit everyone. It is noted however that if someone is having too much difficulty, they would need to return to the village by themselves.

    • Is it possible to have a private guide on this tour?

      A private guide is possible, but at a very high cost - so really not recommended.
