Full description

Embark on a hiking adventure with a guide to discover Stromboli Island during sunset. Take in the typical Mediterranean nature as you walk. Stop to marvel at breathtaking views of the island, sea, and Mount Stromboli. Once the sun set, see the active volcano light up the night sky.

This hiking adventure starts from the info point Ashàra located in Piazza San Vincenzo.

After a briefing, the hike will begin through a nature trail that will lead us up to 400mt ( maximum limit allowed by the authorities to ensure maximum safety), excellent observation point of the summit craters and Sciara del Fuoco. During the trekking we will make some intermediate breaks to enjoy the view, we will visit the old island cemetery, we will cross the typical Mediterranean scrubs, accompanied by the constant view of Strombolicchio. Once reached the Sciara del Fuoco, we will stop to admire the wonderful sunset that colors the Aeolian archipelago red and the spectacular "strombolian" activity with its explosions that shine in the night sky.

Great experience with great guides, we ate at the top of the volcano and we could see several lava outpourings it was really great. Contrary to what we had read the climb was very pleasant and not as complicated as we thought anyone can go. I highly recommend an experience not to be missed if you are visiting Stromboli.

La montée n’est pas facile : il fait très chaud, 82% d’humidité de l’air… le coucher de soleil est superbe et les éruptions dans la nuit éblouissantes ! Mais elles se méritent ! Ne pas hésiter à emporter beaucoup d’eau… la descente à la frontale est très poussiéreuse… il vaut mieux être devant…

Very nice but also extremely strenuous hike to the 400 m high vantage point at the beginning of August. If you are not fit enough, no problem, there is a second, very good vantage point at 290 m altitude, which you can easily reach. This does not affect the view of the Stromboli. The guides take the fitness of the participants into account and explain the geology of the volcanoes at different points.
