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

We decided to use a company which went by boat to Panarea then had lunch and a stroll around. We then went to Stromboli and stayed on the black beach until the evening. We then boarded the boat for supper and travelled to below the volcano. The volcano then gave us a remarkable show spitting lava at regular intervals. This... More

This was amazing. The three hour climb up the volcano was well worth it. A definite must on anyone's agenda. Stromboli performed for us and the guide said it was the best he had seen it in the 5 years he had been a guide. Can't recommend it enough.

The volcano hike might end up to be one of the best experiences of your life. We saw 4 flumes spout lava which was incredible. The company we took, Stromboli, however, needs a fix. The booking agent lady and our second guide, Nino, were excellent. Our main guide, Giuseppe, pushed the hikers way too hard and made the group feel... More

I cannot recommend a trip to Stromboli vulcano highly enough. It is truly amazing and the experience will be engraved in your memory. I took the trekking with Magma Track, very nice and experienced guides. They have several groups leaving every day late afternoon and you will be assigned to a group depending on the language you speak. The hike... More

The boat trip itself was great, and even by daylight Stromboli is spectacular, with a rumble like thunder and a plume of black smoke shooting skywards. But at night, from out at sea, the regular firework display is dramatic and awe-inspiring. The trip was one reason why I went to the Aeolian Islands, which are a great sight in their... More
