Overview

The Vulcano a Piedi, organizes excursions on Stromboli volcano, and promotes the knowledge of the entire Aeolian archipelago.There is no sight more fascinating than that of an active volcano, a small dot on the map where the land glimpses of what happens in the ever-raging forge hidden inside it.Following the paths that meander along its slopes you will admire spectacular volcanic events, surrounded by wonderful natural landscapes you will enjoy beautiful panoramic views.

Incredible experience! The climb was challenging ad advertised, but do not let that scare you too much, it's still doable even if not in the best phisical shape and if you do not hike every week. Challenging, but incredibly exciting. Breathtaking the view while going...More
