We hired a boat to take us round to Sciara del Fuoco. We stayed there for about 45 minutes and saw three eruptions of lava. It was quite something to see - I've always wanted to see a volcano. We didn't see any massive eruptions, but it was still really impressive.

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!. Beware of the dust if you have asthma. Take a head torch and warm clothing.

The volcano Stromboli don't sleep, he is still actif, I saw him in the distance, but he was on sleeping, but smoked; he is majestic, in awaiting the right moment, he is awesome, and I was in awe of this silence. The little village of Stromboli is a dreaming place and has a black sand beach. Volcano Stromboli dosn't make... More

I climbed to the crater with Magmatrek which was very well organised and professional. The climb up is steep but nice and slow with lots of breaks. You must Wear proper hiking boots and I highly recommend hiring walking poles and gaiters - to keep the soft black ash from entering your boots and to assist your balance and knees,... More

A thoroughly excellent day out. We left Milazzo at midday, called in to Lipari, to collect more passengers and then it was on to Panarea where there was time for a leisurely lunch - although we had eaten some Arancini from the cafe on board, so sampled the delicious granita from the Bar di Carola on the waterfront. . Then... More

A great relaxing day visiting local islands and culminating with a sunset tour of the active Volcano... Something that has to be experienced...to see & feel mother nature at her finest.

Since recorded history Mt. Stromboli has been a beacon for sailors in the eastern Mediterranean near Sicily and the Italian coast. We approached Stromboli on a Cruise Ship at about 9PM having traversed the Strait of Messina earlier in the day. It was dark, and the moon was trying to punch through the clouds - we positioned ourselves outside on... More

Walk is quite challenging, especially when your guide is in hurry to get to the top and rushes to get down. Volcano not very active at our time but still had fantastic sights and sounds. Important to know that in windy weather most ferries and boats are cancelled, so you could be disappointed and not get there on a planned... More

We took Bartolo's boat to see the Tower of Fire but unfortunately, the volcano was not active. We did have a quiet and peaceful night and viewed a spectacular sunset from the water. The price of the excursion was very reasonable and even included a nice liqueur tasting. Bartolo did not speak English but we had enough Italian Speakers on... More

You not only get to see explosions at night-time which are pretty cool, you get to see the sun-set and you get to look down into the craters at the top - very special indeed. If you can physically get to the top on your own it is well worth the effort. I hiked with MAGMATREK (in the centre of... More
