Stromboli Labronzo en 2018-03-14T00:25:43+00:00


Departure from our information desk in Piazza San Vincenzo.

After a short briefing the excursion leading us up to the height of 920masl will start.

After having reached the old Observatory (ex-Navy lighthouse) located in Punta Labronzo, the route continues going up to a panoramic ridge running along the Sciara del Fuoco (Stream of Fire) up to the cross at about the height of 800masl with the traditional ascent trail called Liscione, a little bit under the summit.

During the ascent of about 3 hours we will stop for 3, 4 intermediate pauses to enjoy the landscape.

After arriving to the summit area, we will stop for about 1 hour to admire the spectacular “strombolian” activity of the volcano.

We will go back to the starting point crossing at first the Rina Grande scree slope and then the typical strombolian rushes. The descent lasts about 2 hours.

The old Labronzo route offers, differently from the traditional ascent one, an unique panoramic view constantly on the Sciara del Fuoco (Stream of Fire) and a view on the North East crater, one of the three Stromboli active craters; but it involves several steep and uneven trails.

For this reason we recommend this excursion only to people with an adequate physical training.

  • Trekking boots* with high socks;
  • Headlamp flashlight* (one each);
  • Extra t-shirt;
  • Pull and anorak (k-way);
  • Backpack (10-20L)
  • Water, at least 1.5L
  • Snack and packed lunch

*Available rental in loco

In order to avoid risks, it is very important to be totally aware about oneself health conditions and to inform eventually your guide about them.
Here following some notes about safety.

Pregnant women
No hiking activity is allowed after the third month of pregnancy for security reasons and physical integrity.

Heart disease, asthma and vertigo
All hiking activities at any altitude are not suitable for people suffering from these diseases, both for low altitudes and higher ones.

Contact Lenses
The use of contact lenses is forbidden during any excursions, above all for those leading up to summit area, due to the presence of volcanic ashes spread by the wind.

Changes of schedule
Excursions schedules are subject to changes or interruptions at the discretion  of the guide if weather conditions, environmental causes, or volcanic risks can represent any source of danger.

Moreover, the guide has the authority to interrupt the excursion for any reason risking to compromise the safety and so the physical integrity of a single person or of the whole group.
