From just being on two islands with less than 400 year-round residents, every day on Stromboli and Vulcano will deliver you new experiences and memories to treasure.

ENJOY The OCEAN and other hikes

Stromboli is amazing in so many ways you’ll discover while here. From beach and ocean adventures to awesome hikes, you’re gauarnteed to love it!

EAT INCREDIBLE LOCAL FOOD

Get your taste buds fired up with an authentic Italian vulcanic cuisine.

unique locations

The islands of Stromboli and Vulcano are hidden gems of the South of Italy. With towns of less than 400 year-round residents, they each offer the incredible atmosphere of active volcanoes. Black volcanic sand beaches, breathtaking cliffs, volcanic mud baths, underwater vent  and beautiful sunsets.

ACTIVE VOLCANOES

‘Vulcano’ is a stunning volcanic island where the name volcano origionated from! With lower activity but more variety in its features – natural mud baths, underwater bubbles and sulfur vents! We will spend the first 5 days of the retreat here. 

Then the beautiful Stromboli is the most active volcano in Europe. And when we say active – we mean it. IT ERUPTS EVERY 15 MINUTES!

In 2017, 2018 and 2019 4 of the vents were spewing lava for our viewing pleasure when we hiked it. We will be spending the second half of the retreat on Stromboli.

 

This retreat is a dream waiting to happen!
The experience of hiking the volcano was absolutely life-changing. I will never forget sitting at the edge of the crater and seeing 200m explosions right in front of us. Being able to share that experience with other entrepreneurs made it one of the most memorable experiences in my life. Jenny

HAVE QUESTIONS?
WE HAVE ANSWERS
Is this strictly for 'entrepreneurs or people with their own businesses'?

The experience is designed to accelerate and benefit experienced entrepreneurs only. We are looking for people who are founders with at least 5+ years business experience (preferably more). Exceptions possible and we also have other events (apply or connect). We are looking for people who are super ambitious and hungry for growth, but are also wanting to balance work, adventure and play.

Who is coming?
We are bringing a highly curated community of badass entrepreneurs. The movers and shakers, the doers and executors who, just like us are on the journey of entrepreneurship. It’s really important for us that this small tight community bring quality people who are hungry to grow and hungry for adventures. Apply!
Will I have access to stable internet/WIFI?

Yes. Internet has NOT been an issue at the last retreats. We have been well covered by: retreat provided mobile WIFI devices at the accomodation, nearby cafe WIFI (5-10min walk) and everyone having their own data sims (3 or TIM recommended).

However we cannot fully guarantee WIFI internet 100% of the time and it is not full speed. We have done Skype Audio fine in the past, but not full video). We strongly recommend you have your own data capable device AND reduce your reliance on a constant internet connection for the 9 days (also we recommend you reduce your needs to record podcasts, upload content, have video skype calls). 

Is travel included?

Travel is not included to the islands themselves. We head to Vulcano first and halfway through the retreat move to Stromboli.

Vulcano and Stromboli are remote island off the south coast off Italy. To get to the islands you need to book a ferry from Naples (overnight, cabins available, only 2 ferries per week) or Milazzo/Messina Sicily (2-4hrs day ferry, runs multiple times daily). There is limited ferry times and options and we are happy to support and recommend transport options.

Once you are on the islands, you can walk everywhere.

For flights we suggest you check out adioso.com, or Google Flights for flights from other parts of Europe to Rome/Naples or to Catania or Palermo on Sicily.

What is the shared accommodation like?

We are staying in several connected mediterranean style villas. Each room has 2-3 beds so you be sharing with others. We can discuss private options if this is something you would like (extra cost and limited availability).

How much does this cost?
