Steep, endless excursion to see smoke and hear weird noises. Expensive and unsuitable for families or unfit people. You can reach 500 mt. without guides and that is the best part. Going beyond that point you start feeling half dead and already know the following 2 days you will be sore. When you get to the top the smoke often... More

We took a tour through Viator that included Panarea and Stromboli, with dinner as we sailed around the volcano at dusk. The tour picked us up at our hotel, a very convenient touch since the road to the bus terminal is just insane! We drove ~ an hour (maybe a little more) to Milazzo to board the ship that would...

Joined an excursion of Navisal, to Panarea and Stromboli leaving from Milazzo. This is a full day activity. In our case, started by pick up from the Hotel area (Letojanni), 1.5 hour drive to Milazzo, boarding the ship around 13:00, Expecting to return to port by 22:30. Sea was mild, certainly not high, but sailing to Panarea already took its... More

We got a babysitter for our 5 year old, but brought our 7 year old hiking up the volcano. It was beautiful. Not for people with physical difficulties. An elder couple had to turn around 1/3 way up, and it became much more difficult after that. Would not recommend for younger than 7. A guide had to carry an 8... More

We climbed in a group of 20 in late May. It was clear all the way up to the staging area where we stopped for sack dinner and to watch the sunset. It was windy and quite misty. It was very crowded because of other groups of 20 waiting to go up (hoping the clouds would break and none of... More

I have always wanted to see the rivers of fire and visited numerous volcanos in the hope but this promised activity every 20 minutes according to the books so I was ever hopeful. The boat captain we spoke to and the guide both said no activity for 4 days and it's unlikely so they were honest but after a full... More

Climbing the Stromboli Volcano was on of the highlight of the holiday. Climbing up was relatively easy but coming down wasn't easy. A lot of dust. Overall definitely worth the experience.
