Workshops & a great holiday in Sicily also for kids & and animals
The best time to visit Sicily is spring or autumn, because our summers are just too hot. From October to December we offer harvesting olives as our holiday workshops. At this time of the year it is usually still quite warm in Sicily with temperatures up to 26 degrees making it ideal for working outdoors.
Also you will learn a lot of interesting facts about olives and olive oil. You are allowed to participate as hard and as much as you like. Only you decide how long you want to work as long as you are comfortable. As a participant, you will gain comprehensive insights into olive production – from the harvest to the processing of the olives and learn all about our natural and gentle work processes.
This is even healthy because the natural gripping and climbing movement mobilizes the musculature system and activates and improves coordination in the body.
Olive harvesting makes you fit and happy!
You can also discover other parts of the island. With my very good language and local knowledge, I am happy to stand by your side as your personal travel companion.
Through my professional tours you have the opportunity to discover places that you would have never discovered with ordinary tour operators! Get in touch with me and I will help you plan the best possible holidays.
