I am not in great shape so this was a really tough hike for me. Disappointed that we did not see activity as it was a very foggy and windy night. We stayed at the top for only about 20 minutes. Visibility was terrible. The descent was otherworldly in the fog, wind and through the black volcanic sand. It felt... More

A long hike but absolutely worth it to see the eruptions. The view in the dark is amazing and the walk back down surreal and dream-like. Recommend gaiters to keep sand and ash out of walking boots

Not worthwhile to visit. We made a guided tour. Weather was excellent. But when arriving the crater, the guide told us, that there is not good view due to very steamy eruptions. No lava eruptions to be seen. The guide told us later, that this is the case for quite a while........For a 6 year child the extreme wind on... More

Stromboli, an incredibly stunning ...mirage? Appearing suddenly from out of the mist/cloud/steam/smoke that cloak the summit, it is a beautiful, unique, volcanic island. Part of the Aeolian chain in Southern Italy, we considered the ferry in Naples to get to Stromboli. In the end, caught the boat from Tropea to Stromboli. Most visitors to the island go to climb or...

We hired a boat to take us round to Sciara del Fuoco. We stayed there for about 45 minutes and saw three eruptions of lava. It was quite something to see - I've always wanted to see a volcano. We didn't see any massive eruptions, but it was still really impressive.

The volcano Stromboli don't sleep, he is still actif, I saw him in the distance, but he was on sleeping, but smoked; he is majestic, in awaiting the right moment, he is awesome, and I was in awe of this silence. The little village of Stromboli is a dreaming place and has a black sand beach. Volcano Stromboli dosn't make... More

I climbed to the crater with Magmatrek which was very well organised and professional. The climb up is steep but nice and slow with lots of breaks. You must Wear proper hiking boots and I highly recommend hiring walking poles and gaiters - to keep the soft black ash from entering your boots and to assist your balance and knees,... More

A thoroughly excellent day out. We left Milazzo at midday, called in to Lipari, to collect more passengers and then it was on to Panarea where there was time for a leisurely lunch - although we had eaten some Arancini from the cafe on board, so sampled the delicious granita from the Bar di Carola on the waterfront. . Then... More
