Description

I will take you on an unforgettable trek to see an active volcano in Sicily! You’ll be awe-struck to see deep red streaks of burning lava against the dark evening sky as we hike the Stromboli volcano!

Located on the beautiful Stromboli Aeolian island, Stromboli is one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. It has three craters which emit smoke and lava at regular intervals. 

We’ll begin from the quaint Stromboli village 3 hours before sunset. Walking past the beautiful San Vincenzo church, we’ll head towards the volcano (918 m). As we begin to climb, the vegetation begins to disappear, giving way to a rugged landscape. The route rewards us with spectacular views of the blue Mediterranian sea surrounding the island.

We will reach the maximum authorized altitude of 400 meters to admire the Strombolian activity of the volcano! It is remarkable to hear such loud uproars and see all the smoke and light coming out of the craters. The evening sky offers incredible vistas of red-hot lava. There is an explosion every 15/20 minutes and it is rare to see such volcanic activity from such proximity!

After spending about 75 minutes watching this unforgettable show of nature, we’ll descend a steep path to reach the town in 2 about hours.

Don’t forget that you don’t have to be a climbing expert to enjoy this trek.  As long as you are fit and used to a bit of walking, you’ll be fine! And the best part, you can experience it with your complete family!

So, what are you waiting for? Send me a message to have a lifetime experience trekking to the Stromboli volcano! Looking for some more adventure in Italy? I also guide this ski touring program in the Maritime Alps!

Mountain Guide

I live in Cuneo , a little town in South Alps region 100 km from Turin.

We have a lot of wild and beautiful mountains around the town, usually a lot of snow for winter, so as a guide I use to stay around my area during winter and spring time for ski touring and ice climbing.

During the summer as a guide it's better to drive to Chamonix, Cervinia, etc, for climbing the most famous mountains of the Alps.

I born in 30 .07.1969

I love mountains in general, ice climbing, ski touring, climbing or just walking in wild walley.

I speak English and French good level, and I m studying Deutch.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
