Great five hours trek. Stunning views. Amazing sunset. No lava, no fireworks, but being in front of an active volcano, one of the most thrilling experience we've ever had. We have to come back to see it in action. 2wanderers.com

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

Seeing lava splashing out from Stromboli was one of the best moments in my life. There're more than 10 craters, sometimes some of them erupting at the same time, like fireworks on the earth. I booked Magmatrek, they did a great job, it's better to choose the last trip of the day, departs around 6/7 pm, so you can get... More

We did a boat trip to the Aeolian Islands from Taormina initially wanting to go to Lipadi but due to bad weather had to choose another island. If there are storms no boats will go out. The islands are just beautiful and a little like Santorini. Stromboli is quite remarkable when viewed by boat at dusk when you can see... More

Unfortunately there was not an active lava flow that could be accessed the day we sailed there. We sailed around the island and had great views of the vulcano. Worth the visit.
