Climbing Stromboli volcano can be an extremely rewarding experience.
Famous for its regular fireworks since Ancient times, Stromboli is one of the very few volcanoes in the world that is in near-constant activity. It offers visitors a relatively easy access to a vantage point where its fireworks can be observed from very close range in reasonable safety.
In addition, the island of Stromboli with its particularly addictive charm is always worth a visit. Surrounded by sea, magnificent black-sand beaches, a tranquil setting (no cars), beautiful white houses with lush gardens, it provides a perfect surrounding for a relaxing holiday.

Day 1: Ginostra route
Transfer to Ginostra by boat, climb along the western rim of the Sciara del Fuoco to the Valle della Luna, then on to Pizzo, observation of the craters, descend to Stromboli village
The tour starts and ends on Stromboli. Since return is usually late, it is normally necessary to spend at least one night on the island, but to enjoy the island and its volcanoes, you can easily spend 3 days or more there...
The excursion requires ca. 900 m (ca. 3000 ft) altitude gain and descend which is strenuous. The whole excursion takes between 5 and 7 hrs. Typically, a group leaves at around 5-6pm and returns at around 11 pm. The ascent takes about 3 hrs and the descend 1-1.5 hrs for the return. Only people in good physical condition with experience in hiking and climbing on trails should attempt the climb.
The trail is unpaved, rocky or sandy. Exposure to heights and slopes should not be a problem and you need a secure step.
