Great experience with great guides, we ate at the top of the volcano and we could see several lava outpourings it was really great. Contrary to what we had read the climb was very pleasant and not as complicated as we thought anyone can go. I highly recommend an experience not to be missed if you are visiting Stromboli.

Ascent uncomplicated, only the heat makes it a bit exhausting. The observation point is reached at about 450 meters above sea level. Experienced a fantastic sunset and several explosions from the middle crater in the dark. The clear explanations from our guide Giuseppe, a competent geologist, were a great asset.

A unique spectacle, a beautiful hike. Only black point: the start-up time is too long at the start, we almost missed the sunset... and we would have stayed longer to contemplate the spectacle. Leaving the last of and returning first, this amputates the tour by a good 1/4 hour!

The tour was an amazing experience. The guides were very friendly and very knowledgeable about the island and volcano. Got to see the volcano activity which was unreal.

We were extremely lucky, because the vulcano is very active in these days. The standard trail is demaged and to have a guide is recommended.
