We took a tour with NAVISAL - the volcano erupted a few days before so we were lucky that there was still lava and the sight was amazing. Check with the locals, they know if it is a good time to go. If no lava not sure it is worth it. If you have time, check other ways to get... More

Just amazing, seeing this volcano blasting every 15 min is just magic, but more over think about the sound it makes...a huge "BOOOOM" after each eruption, it's just magic. Try to find a boat and stay for the night close to it.

We just came back from a 11-day REI guided hiking trip to Southern Italy, and our stay on Stromboli was the high point of the trip. We arrived the afternoon before our hike up to the top of the volcano and had a free morning to swim, shop and rest before the climb. We met in the main piazza at... More

We climbed Stromboli vulcano with Stromboli Adventures in July. The climb itself was not challenging (although 1 participant had to quit due to health reasons) and the views along the way up were superb. Once arrived to the top, the only viewing we had were clouds. This was rather disappointing, but not uncommon. But the climb and the descent are... More

You can either take a guided tour to the top or walk your self to the 400m viewing point i would recommend both. The walk to the top can be tricky in a few places. The walk to the 400m point is fairly easy going until the last section, it provides a great view when the sun has gone down.

I chose to hike the north path/face of Stromboli. It was easy going for a while than become rather steep and rocky. I only went to about 600 metres up as the views form there were pretty impressive, especially the old lava flows into the sea. You also get a great view of the smoke belching out.

We trekked up the mountain side on a wild windy afternoon. As we got to the summit the clouds and mist drew in. The volcanoe did not dissapoint. Splashes of colourful magma bursts through the misty twightlight - all in all mystical and magical. The trek up and down was more strenuos than expected and as a visitor one needs... More

We were fortunate enough to sail by Stromboli on a beautifully sunny afternoon on the way to Malta. The smoking peak was clearly visible against the blue sky and made for an interesting sight before heading into the Strait of Messina.

On the websites it says: "duration: 3 hours. 1 km high mountain " Not too bad - is it? What they don't tell you is: it's almost 4 hours absolutely horrible and nerve-wracking trekking with hardly any breaks, in reality it's a way of 10 km up a steep mountain, 1 hour on top and then 2 hours to get...

Long trekking(around 5-6 hours up & down), but quite easy. A little adventure really worth it, with wonderful lava explosion views at the top.
