I spend 3 days on Stromboli und stayed the 2 nights up on the mountain in front of the lavastream (mid august 2014). And I can tell, it was exciting!!! This was an experience of a lifetime. Stromboli is a very unique place and worth a visit in every sense. I will definitely come back.

We walked up to the crater with Magmatrek. It was a strenuous walk, over three hours climbing in the burning sun. We arrived at the crater just after sunset. The view down into the fire pots, which erupted every few minutes is impressive and beautiful. We were at the craters for little less then an hour. The walk down took... More

One of our dreams has been to see Stromboli by night. Unfortunately, Stromboli was sleeping while we were there so we did not get to see the promised nocturnal fireworks. But it's still well worth seeing, especially from the water. We sailed right round the volcano.

Seeing Stromboli at night would be on my list of things to do before you die, I never thought I'd see an active volcano but this was very impressive. We made the trip to Stromboli as part of a mini cruise organised by Thomson but run by 'Tarnav'. It took about an hour to get to Milazzo from Taormina and... More

We took a Stromboli walking tour the day after the volcano had reopened after a 27 day hiatus in tours due to unfavourable conditions. This meant that the peak was particularly busy that evening but it was beautifully managed by Magmatreck who kept their guides in touch with each other to control the flow of people on the volcano. Our... More

This was my second visit to the island of Stromboli and I am sure it will not be the last. Unfortunately the volcano was passing through one of it's most active phases when I visited this time and our excusion to the crater had to be cancelled but we did at least manage to climb up to the 4.000 metre...

Ate at the Observatory restaurant after a rather wild taxi ride and Strombli put on a magnificent erupting performance while we at pizza and drank excellent Sicilian red. Next day climbed as far as we were allowed to go and watched the volcano do its thing. An amazing experience

This was epic! The first night we went up the mountain there was cloud cover and we saw nothing! Everyone was super disappointed and headed back down at about 8:30pm. The next morning we saw a couple who had also hiked up at the same time but stayed at the top until about 2am. They saw amazing lava explosions and... More
