What to Expect
Your full day adventure to Europe's tallest active volcano begins on off-road trails.

Then the tour takes you on a relaxing walk through the stunning and unique volcanic landscape. You'll walk along old lava flows and ancient forests to see some of the 300 inactive craters and lunar landscapes around the ancient volcano.
Wine has been produced around Mount Etna since ancient times, with vineyards cultivating dry red and white wines. You'll visit the wine cellars of the Etna vineyards before tasting the distinct local wines and indulging in a delicious, fresh Sicilian lunch.
