Trekking to the Stromboli volcano in Sicily

Stromboli volcano

Join UIAGM certified guide Marco to witness unbelievable volcanic activity in Sicily! Explore one of the three active volcanoes in Italy as you hike to the Stromboli volcano!


1/2 Day

Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • See one of the three active volcanoes in Italy.
  • Witness red hot lava and smoke emitting from the craters.
  • Experience breathtaking views of the Stromboli volcano.


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!

About the 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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
