A very nice trek up to the crater of the volcano, I went with Magmatrek and they were fantastic. After reading about the trek from the various forums I was still rather apprehensive about the trek although I am quite fit but a little afraid of heights. About 20 of us in the group & it took about 2 hours... More

We decided to visit Stromboli with Da Massimo in Lipari which connected with Magma Trek in Stromboli town. Da Massimo were one of the few which offered the tour in a day out of Lipari, leaving at midday and returning around 11:30pm. Group sizes were apparently no larger than 20 yet our group exceeded 25, this made for a slow... More

Terribly hard ascent (2 and a half hours) but realy worth it if you get to see the fire. Going down in the dark is also pretty tough but fun.

In May 2015, Stromboli was mostly inactive and something of a letdown. We walked up with Magma Trek on a foggy evening where the volcano was, at best, smoking and made a slight rumble (that could have been thunder) halfway up. There was no magma or fire visible. The famous lava fields towards the northwest of the island were also... More

We were in the same hiking group as Nicola. The guide was great. On the way up, we stopped at certain view points and were explained about the volcano and the island. On the way down, he informed us in advance that there was a part that we should not stop. It was helpful. His experience in handling diffferent situations... More

We climbed Stomboli yesterday and I'd like to say a huge thank you to our guide, Hugo for helping me get to the top! We booked through Stromboli Adventures, just beside the big church. Stefania in the office was very helpful and friendly. I had a bit of a melt down halfway up, I didn't realise how scared of heights... More

Don't be put off by the reviews saying guides are too fast / too aggressive - it wasn't like that at all. Paulo from Magmatrek deliberately put the slowest people directly behind him and set his pace by us. He absolutely did his utmost to ensure I made it to the top; even lending me his trekking pole when he... More

This is a 4km/2h (one way) walk to a view point that you can do without guided tour, for free. As I was 6.5 months pregnant, I couldn't do the guided tour to the summit but this walk gave us already an amazing view over the smoking volcano. Unfortunately there was no lava as the volcano is sleeping since November... More

Being close to an active volcano is quite thrilling. Especially when being on an island where you basically cannot go anywhere in case the entire thing blows up. But right now the vulcano peacefully is "smoldering", you cannot see any lava! It's still impressive but just don't expect lava fireworks. Locals told us that it stopped last November (2014). But...

They do not encourage their customers to succeed in climbing the peak, they tell them to go down and not to slow the group. We were told that there would be a rest break every 20 minutes and there was not. The guides humiliated my parents in front of the the entire group by telling them not to continue. My... More
