Full description

Embark on a guided hiking trip and witness Stromboli Island at sunset. Marvel at the breathtaking island views, the Mediterranean Sea, and Mount Stromboli, and watch the active volcano light up the night sky.


Meet your guide and set off from Piazza San Vincenzo before sunset. After a safety briefing, start your hike from a nature trail that leads 400 meters up the volcano. Soak up the dramatic views of the summit craters and Sciara del Fuoco from a viewpoint.


During the trek, take breaks to take in the views and even visit the old island cemetery. Cross the Mediterranean shrubs, accompanied by the constant view of the Strombolicchio sea cliffs.


On arrival at Sciara del Fuoco, marvel at the sunset that colors the Aeolian archipelago red and witness the volcanic eruptions lighting up the night sky. Then, make your way downhill in the dark, equipped with torches, and return to the starting point.

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.
