Full description
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.

Es ist eine tolle Wanderung durch die Vulkan-Natur von Stromboli mit guten Erklärungen durch den Guide. Für sportliche Leute mittel bis wenig anstrengend. Oben auf 400m ist es windig, daher ist ein T-Shirt zum Wechseln und eine Jacke oder ein Fleece-Shirt zu empfehlen. Toller Blick auf die Feuerrutsche im Sonnenuntergang und den nun feurig in ausbrechenden Vulkan (ca. alle 15-20 Minuten). Sehr beeindruckend. So auch der Abstieg mit Stirnlampen. Unsere Gruppe war sehr flott unterwegs und nach knapp 5h zurück im sehr beschaulichen Stromboli-Ort. Hier bleibt die Zeit ein wenig stehen. Sehr zu empfehlen.

This was a really spectacular hike! We walked about 1h30-1h45min up to Sciara del Fuoco. Stayed there for an hour to watch the “natural fireworks” and then walked about 1h15min down. It was quite a dynamic hike but fine if you are an active person. Take plenty of water and a sweater for the top.

This was a fantastic experience! The guide was very knowledgeable and timed our walk perfectly to see the sunset. We stayed at the viewpoint for more than an hour to watch the lava. It was fab! My husband is 60 and found the climb a bit challenging but thought it was definitely worth it. Get Your Guide took quite a bit of commission. If we had paid at the Fire Trekking office on Stromboli, we would have paid 20 Euros each. GYG charged us £47 (approximately 25 euros each).
