Of all the Aeolian Islands, Stromboli is the most beautiful, a sheer volcanic rock rising from the sea. If you dare to brave it alone you can sleep on the foothills of 3000ft Mt Stromboli, an active volcano, and witness the onslaught of throbbing hot pieces of lava.

You can take a day trip to Stromboli, but it is better to stay at least one night in order to climb the volcano and see the dramatic lava flows and explosions against the night sky. It's a 3 hours strenuous hike from the village base to the summit.

How to get there

Cars cannot be taken to Stromboli village or the nearby village of Ginostra, so travelling in from Napoli by ship, hypdrofoil or small boat is the only option and then hike by foot.

Where to stay

The population of Stromboli during the summer months goes from about 500 locals to 7000, so you've got to book your accommodation well in advance. Hotels are expensive and a room in a pensione (hostel) costs about $68.
If you're planning a longer stay, there are hotels and guest houses on Stromboli but during the winter or high season (July and August) accommodation can be a problem so remember to book ahead.

Equipment Essentials

Flashlight, food, water, hiking boots, sun protection and wind protection.
