Itinerary Trekking Tour Stromboli:
Right now, due to the explosions that occurred last year, it is no longer possible to reach Stromboli’s summit at about 900 meters above sea level on our trekking tour. It is possible to reach a height of 400 meters on the following tour:
The group excursions depart daily from the trekking agency. Following the natural trail that starts behind the church of San Vincenzo, the tour takes you to the old cemetery. It is a small group of tombs dating back to the early 1900s, concealed under the lush Mediterranean vegetation. This path created in 2003 offers the opportunity to walk on a more or less constant altitude at about 250 meters above sea level.
Following the trail for another hour to the North West, we come to the trail that leads to a mule track above the Labronzo Observatory. Following this track, we come to a place that offers a breathtaking view of the ‘Sciara del Fuoco’ (the lava flow) and the Northeast crater. This point called Belvedere is the perfect spot to admire the eruptions of the volcano. As we continue our walk for another 25 to 30 minutes we come to an altitude of about 400 meters. There you can admire Stromboli’s unique eruptions and explosions after sunset.
On the way back down (which is different from the trail up), we will mainly follow an ancient mule track, built during the shooting of the film “Stromboli Terra di Dio” (Stromboli Land of God) in 1949. It offers a stunning view of the ‘Sciara del Fuoco’ (the lava flow). In about an hour and a half we will reach the town and come back to our starting point.
The level of the excursion is classified as easy. It is necessary though to bridge the elevation gap of 400 meters in 1.5 hours. Consequently, the trail is not very steep in the first but steeper during the last part, which leads from 200 meters up to 400 meters in only 25-30 minutes. Even if this path allows everyone to reach the destination without too much effort, a minimum of walking habit is essential.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays the departure is at 07:45 am from the harbor of Tropea, arrival at Stromboli at 03:45 pm (with a stop at Vulcano and Lipari with free time on the islands). The return on Mondays and Thursdays is at 07:30 pm from Stromboli, with the famous “Sciara del Fuoco” (watching the lava flows from the boat), arrival at Tropea at 11:00 pm.
