  • A wonderful brisk walk the volcano on and then the reward of a super spectacle. Such natural disasters you should at least once in your life see and hear.

  • Very beautiful ascension surrounded with Magmatrek. We had meet at 14: 00 in the church square. Guides check our equipment and we sign shocks. We start at 14 h 20 max. The mounted takes 3 hours. It is done at different times, depending on the season. We were a group of 20 french, along with 2 guides, Zaza and Silvio. Ascension is done at a beginners pace. We do breaks every 30 minutes, for drinking, eating and dressing. During each break, the guides explain the evolution of the volcano, in support of photos. We arrived at the top at 5:15, just for the sunset. It takes perfect timing and our guides knew very well. (2 groups behind us did not have the chance). The volcano was smoking a lot. It is a really beautiful sight. We had the right to 2 jets of lava, impressive in the dark night. Initially, Magmatrek told us that he has was not much activity these days, so it is considered to be lucky. We stayed 1 h above. What is sufficient eventually because there was a lot of wind and it was pretty cold, well covered. The descent is by the old path of lava, to peak, in the sand, and to the front. We sink a lot, it is essential to have high shoes, as well as a mask, there was a lot of smoke, which stung the throat. I keep a very good memory, although the activity of the volcano. Ascension is very pretty, it is very well surrounded. It is really rewarded by the sunset over the Aeolian Islands.

  • The most spectacular I've ever seen! A guided tour (28 euro with Stromboli Adventures) in a 20-it group. Went over six hours. Up and at about 950m about 2 hours, 2 observation points lingers. We have a good dozen eruptions seen during this time, an unforgettable experience! I strongly recommend a good camera equipment, as well a good flashlight, for the descent and return March! PS: The descent brought the soreness of his life, in the thighs one... ;-)
