This was sensational. We got our excursion from Lipari. The group sizes to the top are 20 people (ish), and trust me.... there are a lot of people who do this! The seas had been rough the few days beforehand, so the trip hadn’t run...More

OK I appreciate I’m contributing to the problem but realistically far too many tourists descend on the island of Stromboli. What they come to see is the eruptions which can only be seen from a boat and does not actually need you to set foot...More

It takes 6 hours to go to the summit and back. Experience not to be missed when you are there. The walk is a bit strenuous but the pace is slow and most people people can do it. Seeing eruptions every 5 to 10 minutes,...More

Crazy nature experience! Rates among the best I’ve ever seen....... exploding lava WTF! Downside a lot of people on the volcano, a little touristy.... BTW you forget all about that the second you feel the earth rumble and the volcano spray rocks in the air.....More

Decided to book the boat trip to the islands including Stromboli as part of our holiday. Although it was a rather a long trip starting at Cefalù harbour and then jumping from island to island couldn’t fault it. The staff in the boat were friendly...More

With its black sand beach, beautiful white houses and active volcano Stromboli has such an amazing atmosphere you can hardly find. Volcano has eruptions almost every 20 minutes and you can watch them from both the boat or from the mountain if you go on...More

A must-do excursion to the Osservatorio - don’t go before 8:00 - you need it to get nice and dark in order to see Stromboli explode molten lava!

Walked up from the Observatory restaurant to watch the sun set and view the explosions. Great fun...

NO, I would NOT advise taking kids that young on this hike, It is quite strenuous, and since you must hike with a guide in a group you must keep the pace of the other hikers. It would not be appropriate or fair to the others... More

Hi I preferred wearing boots for on the way down which is thick ash. It is dusty but it won't wreck clothing or anything - just dusty. You have to dig your heels in when going down and ash does/will flow up over the top of... More

Difficult to answer you: we decided to stay on Stromboli island to climb on the volcano and be sure to witness the explosions! It was a good idea as the top of the volcano is sometimes cloudy. I highly recommend doing... More
