We went with Magmatrek after the Volcano Discovery group with which we had made a reservation did not end up scheduling a trip. Save the 10 euros and just book with Magmatrek (which did honor the voucher from Volcano Discovery, fortunately). Our guide was Adriano...More

A guided evening walk up Stromboli is great. As darkness descends the light show really shows up. The eruptions are regular and frequent. The walk down is through deep cold ashes and is similar to walking through powdered snow. A head torch is essential.

To go up the Stromboli vulcano, you have to go with a guide. You can go up to 400m without guide, but then you don’t see the crater. If you go higher on your own, you risk fines! We went up there with ‘il Vulcano...More

Get on one of the boat trips to Stomboli stopping on the island for a walk round then back on the boat back to Massina and if like me you will get the chance to see it erupt as it erupts every night.

It is amazing to watch an erupting volcano! As of June 2018, the small vent is constantly glowing, and the larger vents erupt approximately 3 to 5 times per hour. If you are going to be in Sicily or the Aolian islands, I highly recommend...More

We booked the very standard trip from Lipari via Panarea to Stromboli for a night hike. All our guide on the hike did was lead us up the path to the top. He didn't share any information. Despite that, we were with a slow group...More

It’s an adventure. It’s a very stiff climb so don’t attempt it if you aren’t reasonably fit. The first 500m of the climb was a steepish hill walk. The last 450m was a climb. The total journey took us 2.5 hours to climb 950m. I...More

One is not allowed on the volcano without a certified guide. The hike starts late in the afternoon, so as to be on the top at sunset, and view the eruptions in the dark. WOW!!!!!!!!! It was incredible. Really out of this world. Helmets required,...More
