Finally the hiking activity resumes.

Following the strong activity of the volcano
and the paroxysmal explosions of 2019,
access to the summit area has been prohibited.

The trek network has been reorganized, with free access up to 290 m a.s.l.
Above this altitude and up to 400 m .a.s.l., access is permitted only to persons accompanied by authorized mountain or volcanologic guides.

We organize excursions up to the reachable limit.

Itineraries can be personalized with regard to timing and approach route depending on specific needs. The guide can be chosen with regard to the language spoken.

School Excursions

We have a long-standing experience working with Italian and foreign schools. We offer excursions for students at secondary/middle/high school level, where particular attention is paid to educational and cultural aspects. Upon request we can also organize easier walks for younger students and children.

Cost: to be defined.

Excursions with children

Children aged 7-12 years can join the excursion only if motivated, in very good phisical condition and used to climb.

Excursions departing and returning to Lipari on the same day

For those who overnight in Lipari and wish to go there after the excursion there is a boat service available: “Da Massimo” (info and bookings: www.damassimo.it).


We’re always happy to provide any type of information about the island, as well as about transport and accommodation.

General Conditions

Our excursions are open to everybody, but as certain parts of the trail are particularly steep, and temperatures can be hot in the summer months, trekkers need to be in optimal physical condition and carry the necessary equipment. The climb is not suited for people with a known heart condition, asthma patients, persons who suffer from vertigo and children under the age of 10 years.

For safety reasons the guide reserves the right to cancel the excursion at any time owing to weather conditions, inadequate equipment or the physical condition of individual participants.
