Stromboli volcano photos: strong activity June 2014

Towards the end of May 2014, activity at Stromboli volcano strongly increased as the magma level inside the conduit rose considerably. The following pictures were taken during two climbs to the volcano with official mountain guides on 9 and 10 June, as part of our recent tour to Stromboli and Etna.
