What you'll do

Your guided hiking adventure will start from the Ashara information desk in Piazza San Vincenzo located inside Ingrid Bar

Departure scheduled about 2 hours before sunset to be able to admire the spectacular beauty along the side of the Sciara del Fuoco and to enjoy the view of the typical Stromblian explosions.

After a short briefing, the excursion will begin which will lead us until 400masl (maximum limit allowed by the authorities to ensure maximum safety) an excellent observation point of the summit craters and the Sciara del Fuoco.

During the first 2 hours of trekking we will make 2 or 3 intermediate breaks to enjoy the view and, if you prefer, have the opportunity to immortalize the natural beauty of this wonderful landscape.
On our way we will meet and visit the old island cemetery and cross the typical Mediterranean scrub.

Once we reach the Sciara del Fuoco, we will stop to admire the spectacular “Strombolian” activity typical of the volcano, and we will then return to the starting point crossing the typical reeds of the island and the old mule track that goes up to the crater.

Duration of the excursion about 5 hours.

Hello, I am Giuseppe De Rosa, I graduated in Geology at University of Florence.
In 2003 I went for the first time on Stromboli Island as a researcher and from that moment I felt an incredible passion for volcanoes and for this magical land where I permanently live now.
My huge interest in volcanoes lead me becoming a full time Volcanological Guide.
Passionate and in love with this island, I always try to discover more and more secrets of the impressive “IDDU” (Him-Stromboli) and during my excursions my aim is to transmit the emotions and the relationship I feel.

Abbiamo avuto modo di goderci un tour meraviglioso. Il nostro guide parlava molto bene l'inglese e ha spiegato molto bene alcuni dettagli interessanti. Vale assolutamente la pena scegliere una guida piuttosto che andare da soli, poiché puoi salire molto più in alto e avere una visione migliore. Diese Tour ist ein tolles Erlebnis. Der Guide sprach sehr gut English und hat uns viele Interessante Details erzählt. Es lohnt sich total diese Tour zu buchen, da man mit dem Guide viel höher rauf darf und dadurch eine viel bessere Sicht hat.

Hike to a 400m above sealevel situated viewpoint of the Stromboli explosions. The guide Giuseppe, a former geology researcher, gave us interesting insights and additional information about the vulcano. Possible trekking shoe rental without additional costs. You reach the viewpoint at sunset and can admire the explosions for about an hour. It gets pretty cold so take warm clothing with you. The meeting point is a pizzeria which is still open by the time you get back. Highly recommend the tour.

It was a great hike. Very good communication beforehand. The running style is fast, but you can keep up with it in a group. The nature is awesome. Equipment for hiking could be borrowed. That was very helpful and made the hike enjoyable. Thank you for this great trip! I can highly recommend it.

We loved this experience. It's definitely worth paying for a guide to take you up to the 400m viewpoint at night which has restricted access than just going to the 290m viewpoint which isn't restricted as the views are much better. Our guide spoke excellent English and had a deep knowledge of the volcano. Would highly recommend. A highlight of our trip.

It’s an experience one has to do when coming to Stromboli. The price is really fair. The guide was nice. Just be careful: you might be in a group of 20 people like as was. It might not be clear (I thought but maybe wrongly that we would be a very few people). Plus, for safety reasons, we are not that close, but I understand safety first!

This experience showed us a magical place, unique in the world! Stromboli island, we fell in love with after the first sight. Thanks to Giuseppe who told us more about this place and led us safe & sound to a perfect view point at 400 m just next to the "fire road" where we could take our time to observe to magical activity of the vulcano.
