Useful indications to the participants
Departure from our information desk in Piazza San Vincenzo. After a short briefing, the excursion that will take us to the height of 400masl will begin. During the ascent of about 2 hours we will stop for 2, 3 intermediate breaks to enjoy the view, the Sciara del Fuoco and one of the most beautiful sunsets. After arriving at the maximum altitude allowed, we will stop for about 1 hour to admire the spectacular "Strombolian" activity typical of the volcano. We will return to the starting point going down the side of the volcano enjoying a starry sky without the disturbance of the reverberation of metropolitan lights. The descent will last about 2 hours.
Excursion for moderately trained hikers, used to move on sandy or detrital terrain, where there may not be paths and where the route can tackle sometimes exposed sections. Excursion is also possible for children aged ten and up. To avoid taking risks, it is a good idea to know your health condition perfectly and to have it present when driving, especially in cases of heart problems, asthma and dizziness. At the discretion of the guide, the excursions may undergo variations or be interrupted if the weather conditions, environmental causes, or possible volcanic risk, can represent any source of danger. Furthermore, the guide is entitled to stop the excursion for any reason that could compromise the safety and therefore the physical integrity of an individual or of the entire group.
