VOLCANO CLIMBING

Stromboli
Eruption on Stromboli

The Island of Lipari is a great starting point and base for volcano enthusiasts, climbers and volcanologists. You have a lot of craters in the Aeolian Islands and four active volcanoes at a short distance:

  1. The great volcano system Mount Etna on Sicily (Click for Webcam)
  2. The very unique Stromboli black island (Click for Webcam)
  3. The dormant big crater on the Vulcano island (Click for Webcam)
  4. A new submarine gas crater in the Panarea archipelago

All the Aeolian islands are old volcanoes and several of them can be visited, as the main crater of Salina and the crater of Monte Sant'Angelo in Lipari, now a big rain water collecting station.

The documentation of our volcanoes is widespread on Internet. Click here for a Google search. But we especcially want to recommend a visit to Stromboli Online on www.swisseduc.ch/stromboli. Stromboli online offers a very professional documentation available in several languages, with photos and panoramic virtual toors.
