Full description

Enjoy an adventurous day trip to Mount Etna, including handy roundtrip transfers from Catania. Best of all, customize your tour according to your needs, choosing from either a private or small-group experience in a choice of languages. Explore the volcano’s ancient craters, a lava flow cave, and try some local products, while taking in some breathtaking panoramic views along the way. Start your day with a pick-up from your Catania accommodation in an air-conditioned 4x4 or minivan. Digest some fun facts about the volcano from your professional guide as you drive 2000 meters up. Hear about everything from the volcano’s natural resources, memorable landscapes, and flora, to lava flows that have swallowed roads and buildings in past spurts of activity. Once you reach 2000 meters up, take a guided walk around the ancient craters, recent lava flows, and other-worldly landscape. Rest easy as the trek is an easy one, suitable for both families with younger children and older family members. Try a mini-sampling of Sicilian delicacies during the trek, with some "cantucci" biscuits and "zibibbo" wine both up for tasting. After a short break, head to your next stop — a lava flow cave. Using a helmet and flashlight, you’ll discover the cave’s origins and stand-out features in ample time with your guide. Your last stop is a panoramic viewpoint at Monte Pomiciaro, granting you unforgettable views and photo opportunities over the Valle del Bove, the volcano’s most important valley. If the sunset option is selected, take in breathtaking views of Etna during 'Golden Hour'. After your volcanic adventure, head back to Catania, where your tour will conclude.

Daniele was great! He made sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. Very knowledgeable. Had a great group. We didn’t bring hiking boots and luckily they had some for us which necessary with the snow. Covid safe too, everyone kept their mask on when together except during the hike when we all needed a bit more air hah. Definitely recommend this group. Organized and friendly!

We had our tour on November 26th, 2021. Our guide was very experienced, helpful, spoke English and Spanish and was able to inform all participants about all the interesting details. I highly recommend the tour, I was even able to borrow 2 jackets from him because it was very cold that day. All in all, a well-run, exciting and, above all, friendly tour.

My husband & I loved this trip to Mt Etna! Our guide Daniele was fantastic with an excellent knowledge of geology and history. He spoke English & Italian to our fun group of travelers from around the world. Mt Etna was quite dramatic the day we went and was highly eruptive (lots of smoke, lava, sound). It was exciting and he assured us we were at a safe distance. We also strolled in underground lava tube, hiked to the top of a crater and sipped wine grown in the area. It was perfect for us because the van picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in Catania, and was a very good value. The driver was also excellent.
