The Sciare of Stromboli
“The Lighthouse of the Mediterranean” as it was called in the past, its fitting name comes into its own at night, when the fountains of fire released from the depths of its belly are clearly seen against the starry, night sky. Stromboli’s perennial active state makes it one of the most visited volcanoes; after Etna, it is the second-highest volcano in southern Europe, and one of the world’s most active. The excursion to the crater is a unique and fascinating experience that lets you admire a natural display of unmatched beauty. A hike through the unforgettable, breathtaking landscape will take you to one of the hottest spots on the planet.
The Great Volcano Crater
The island owes its existence to the fusion of four volcanoes, the largest and most active of which is the Fossa, which stands 391 m high and is made of red rock. Although the last eruption dates back to 1890, the volcano has never ceased to give signs of its vitality, and to this day various phenomena are manifested: steam vents, called fumarole, off the top and from below the water’s surface along with therapeutic, sulphur-rich mud.
