We had a great experience with Magmatrek. The guide, an electrical engineer who also guides at Etna, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about everything volcanic, and he kept a nice and slow pace for the group. The trip might not be for everyone, but we are...More

A challenging but achievable trek for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness, a long climb in the July sun but an easy descent down the sand dunes! Well organised and efficient company. I would highly recommend them.

We had the pleasure to attend to Magmatrek’s hike up Stromboli, and it was wonderful! Our guide, Manuel, grew up on this island, and had so much knowledge about both the volcano and it’s geophysics, and the island and life here. He gave us lots...More

For the Stromboli tour we lucked out and the weather was perfect. There are lots of people doing this tour so expect long line of people (ants) making their way up the hill. You will be rewarded at the top if the weather is good....More
