Five of us left the comfort of our boat at 5pm yesterday to arrange tickets for the late afternoon/evening climb of Stromboli. We hired some head lamps & garters for the sand. Used our own sneakers. Left at 6pm in a group of approximately 15....More

Even if it is more expensive, I recommend you, the longest trip as well as the duration. This increases the chances of seeing the volcano erupting. It's worth it.

How often can you say you saw a volcano erupt at night? Gotta take opportunity to see if possible, be patient it can come and go but when it does light up it's pretty cool to witness.

The round trip from Lipari takes about 12 hours including 1½ hrs on Panerea and about 6 hrs on Stromboli (3 going up, 1 at the top and 1½ - 2 coming down). We booked with Da Massimo because their price includes a Magmatrek guide...More

A must see, easy to book for about 80Euro each, if booked from Lipari for a day out adventure. Breathtaking views, life changing experience to see a volcano erupting in clear close sight.

It's a wonderful adventure, highly recommended. It's hard to reach the top of the mountain, but finally you'll enjoy a spectacular Mother Nature's fireworks.

I'm sorry. I just saw your question. We went with an REI operated tour so did not make our own arrangements. From our time on the island, it looked like advance reservations were not really necessary as there were so many... More

It is about 2,5 hours to go up and about 1,5 hours to walk down. The distance in km is not really much.
