Climbing Stromboli

Climbing on Stromboli - volcano guide

Top shots on Stromboli

 

To reach the volcano a three hour walk is required. It is the most fascinating but also the most difficult: the Stromboli climb is not to be underestimated, some parts of its 900 metres are steep and sandy. The effort requires good equipment and participants to be in good physical shape.

You should never stray from the path, even if tempted by the desire to see the nearest explosions. They are neither regular in intensity or frequency, blocks of lava or toxic gases could affect you with fatal consequences. It is advisable to do this trip with an authorised guide.  (*)

At first you go along the old track up to a level of 273 metres, and then the path overlooks the Sciara with great effect, both for the view of the Sciara del Fuoco and for the spectacular explosions.
