Twice hike!
by Ben S. -

I had a really enjoyable walk/hike up Stromboli with Fire Trekking Agency.
The upper half and top of the volcano is exposed to the wind so a windproof jacket is a very good idea,(as they adviced), I also took a hat and gloves which I was glad of once at the summit as the weather was unseasonably cold for mid May.
On top of that the sunset was stunning from the top!
Even though it was dark the walk down was much quicker, the top section on thick black volcanic sand which I found cushioned my steps.
As my title says I ended up going back up again the next day.
Over all, from my experience, I would recommend both going up the mountain and being guided by this company. If I make it back to Stromboli in the future I would climb it again.
The only thing that would have improved the trip for me would have been a bit more in depth detail about the volcano and island. And of course for the wind to be blowing from the opposite direction on the second night!
Grazie mille
