Stromboli Island

Stromboli is situated at 38 deg 47'North and 15 deg 12'East north east of Sicily. It belongs to the Lipary Islands, the distance to the mainland is 54km, 240km to Napoli and 55km to Sicily. It is only 12,5 sqkm large. There are about 400 people living there in one of the two villages Stromboli and Ginostra. Only in Stromboli there are small cars, to Ginostra you go by water taxi. You can get there by boat only either from Napoli or from one of the surrounding islands.

The climate is mediterranean, summers are dry and hot and there are no brooks or sources then. The islanders are collecting their winter rain in tanks but due to increasing tourism there is an additional tankship bringing water from the mainland during summer times. There are a few hotels and rooms to rent on the island.

Stromboli is a still active volcano, even one of the most active worldwide. His peak "Serra Vancori" is about 924m asl coming directly out of the sea. Its eruptions are mostly coming without any notice in advance that is why trekking tours are only allowed with official guides.
