Hi Khalil, glad you enjoyed the boat trip, sounds wonderful! Will you go again while you are there?
Hi guys. I took a boat (20 euros) to Sciara del Fuoco. There's a new lava flow, rocks are reaching the sea. The Volcano was amazing, I could hear the ROAR a few times. Amazing experience!!!
Some huge explosions tonight but I'm perfectly happy to watch from 1500 miles away.;-))
Lovely displays tonight
Seems like a lot of gases working it's way up through the system.
My worry about going to the summit 'at your own risk' is that others lives could be put at risk to rescue you if anything goes wrong.
Interesting seeing a bird in front of the camera
Lava Addict...Each to their own (And in no way am I looking for an online argument here). Given Italians tend to stick two fingers up to authorities anyway (Love that).If somebody is brave (daft) enough to want to go to the summit crater given the current activity.At their own risk I would suggest you'll easily find a local guide willing to oblige...
Are any of you going to or been to Stromboli, geocachers? I have seen there are a few caches there.
Perfect Photo day with the black and gray white smoke and the bright white clouds with a touch of blue . Good Day To All.
Enjoy your trip Khalil- let us know how it went x
Gloria I have just noticed your photograph of the bird 'cip,cip,cip', you were very quick to get that, great photo!
How exciting Khalil. Hello from Sydney, Australia, we'll be thinking of you over the next few hours. Hope you have a wonderful visit!
I'm in Napoli Port right now waiting the boat. I should arrive at Stomboli 7:00 PM. Hotel pit stop then straight to P400.
Looks like mist is coming ove
Access to the summit for general public (using one of the registered guide companies) is not allowed for the foreseeable future. If you look at for instance Magmatrek’s Facebook page you will see the legally enforceable notice that has been issued to all the companies. As a member of the public you can however climb to a point 400m asl. At that point on the recognised paths there are barriers and signs advising you of this. Of course you can just walk round them and continue if you wish, but you risk a fine if caught and of course your own health, while the volcano is in this abnormal state. During the 8 days in mid July I was on the island I only once saw lights near the summit and it was vulcanologists taking readings as I spoke to them the next day. It’s a place to be treated with respect - the burnt and melted camping mat in the museum is a sobering reminder.
