Okay so before you slate me I know mother nature has her own way of doing things. However, we were sold this day long trip on the basis that the volcano has been erupting every twenty minutes. After a very long day sailing we waited and waited and waited and not an eruption in site. I can't help but think... More

We really enjoyed this experience, it was a well worthwhile trip. We booked a place on a small boat from Panarea harbour departing at 18.30pm. It is a speedy, exhilirating half hour ride to Ginostra on Stromboli where you have around 3 hours to explore & dine. The island is small with little in the way of sights as such... More

Better visit at night on a yacht or some kind of a ship. We were cruising from Sicily to Italy and stayed near volcano at night. Erruptions are clearly seen from any distance, but good binoculars make your observation more comfortable. It's hard to make a photo from a ship, so better just enjoy the view. Volcano errupts every several... More

We decided to do the 'free' trek up to 400m up to the Ossorvatorio restaurant and this offered a great view of 3 eruptions in about 90 minutes Do NOT believe anyone that tells you you'll need warm waterproof clothing in summer. We dressed in long jeans and long-sleeved shirts preparing for it to get chilly but it didn't. We... More

This is a challenging hike(2-3 hours up and 1-2 down) but how many times do you have the opportunity to see an active volcano erupt? This was a once in a lifetime experience for us and well worth the beautiful views from the summit. Make sure to rent hiking boots and bring long socks to keep the ash from getting... More

We had a great trip up the mountain and as we didn't leave until after 6 we were mostly in the shade. Managed to see a number of eruptions which made the hard walk up worthwhile. The pace was a good steady but slow one so I didn't end up too tired at the top. Although we had an English... More

Cruised past this one night at sunset which made the steaming volcano even more spectacular. Interesting to see its original cap nearby in the water - blown off in its original eruption!

You climb over 800m on a series of switchbacks to a point near the summit where your can look down into the crater and watch the vents explode at frequent intervals. You have to take a guide and will be placed into a group of around 20 people with a guide who can speak the languages of most people in... More

One of the most impressive, breathtaking and humbling experiences ever. Make sure you take a boat tour at sunset to see the volcano. If you are lucky, you will witness the volcano at full action. Amazing!!!
