Our main purpose visiting Stromboli was to climb the vulcano. There are several guide companies and you must engage a guide to get above 400m - the volcano is 913m. We checked out the guides via Trip Advisor reviews and our guidebook. The most professional...More

This might've been my best experience yet. Although it was raining almost on the entire climb, when we got up the skies cleared a bit and we got to marvel the frequent eruptions from several of the volcano's fissures. Good physical condition is needed, and...More

We had a tour to the crater, sadly we didn't see anything because of the fog. But the day after we had a wonderful view (and good food and wine) from the Observatorium, with spectacular eruptions every few minutes.

We booked a boat trip from Tropea and went in search of an erupting volcano - we saw no activity but was an interesting place. The black sands are amazing

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

Felt so privileged to view Stromboli on the night boat tour from Panarea. The sunset was simply superb whilst enjoying a glass of wine in the small town of Ginostra. Back in the boat we enjoyed the magic of a full moon rising over the...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

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
