Stromboli: Sunset Trekking at Sciara Del Fuoco

1. Stromboli: Sunset Trekking at Sciara Del Fuoco

Start your guided hiking adventure from the information desk of Piazza San Vincenzo. Depart 2 hours before sunset to admire the spectacular beauty along the side of the "Sciara del Fuoco." After a short briefing, hike to the highest observation point, at an altitude of 400m above sea level, reachable only accompanied by qualified volcanological guides. During the first 2 hours of trekking take 2 or 3 intermediate breaks to enjoy the view and, if you prefer, have the opportunity to capture the natural beauty of this wonderful landscape. Visit the old island cemetery and cross the typical Mediterranean bush. Upon reaching "Sciara del Fuoco", admire the spectacular "Strombolian" activity typical of the volcano. Finally, return to the starting point by crossing the typical Strombolian reed beds and the old mule track leading up to the crater.

The tour started 30mins late, but once we got hiking it was great. The tour guide spoke English and Italian and was very friendly, knowledgeable and responsible. The hike was nice and the view of the volcano was of course spectacular. The hike back down in darkness was quite an experience as well. I would recommend shoes with good grip and a light jacket or sweater against the wind up there.

Very good, you absolutely have to do it to enjoy Stromboli. In addition, the guide provides valuable geological information. Thanks again !!!

Une expérience unique qui vaut vraiment le coup d’être vécue ! Bon encadrement de la part des guides! Paysages à couper le souffle

The guide walking speed was quite fast - only for advanced hikers. The last 10 min was really steep. No pee stops on the way

After 2 hours of effort the reward with 5-6 explosions during the hour that we stay at the top
