The first stop of the day is in the town of Zafferana, known as the town of honey, located on the eastern side of Etna. Visit one of the area’s top organic farms to taste products such as honey, olive oil and wine. Later, put on a helmet and headlamp and head inside a lava cave to learn how lava flows are formed.

This was one of the best tour experiences I have had in my 10 years of traveling in Europe. Our guide Salvatore was fantastic! Wonderful driver, guide, educator and he accompanied us on the option tour up Mt. Etna (cable car and bus to two stops higher on the volcano). The stop at the winery was a perfect way to finish the day. I highly recommend this tour!

Simone is an incredible guide who was able to answer all our questions, teach us a lot of things while adding good humor and humor at will. He also gave us advice for the rest of our trip! Attention, to arrive at Etna, you have to pay 60€ to take the cabins, but it is not to be missed!!!

Die halbtags Tour zum “Etna” kann ich nur wärmstens empfehlen. Die Abholung verlief wie geplant und war der Beginn eines wunderbaren Ausflugs. Peppe unser Tourguide verbreitete ab der ersten Sekunde gute Laune und erklärte bereits auf der Anfahrt zum Etna viele grundlegende Dinge über die Geschichte Sizziliens. Als wir an der Bergstation im Nationalpark ankamen konnten wir frei wählen ob wir mit Peppe die Wanderung an den nahe gelegenen Kratern machen wollten oder aber bis zu den höchsten zugänglichen Punkten weiter wollten. Um von 1800 m weiter nach oben zu kommen gibt es 3 Möglichkeiten- Seilbahn 30€ / E MTB 70€ oder Jeep Tour 70€. Alles gefolgt von einer weiteren Tour mit Guide auf 2500-2800m. Wir haben uns für die Wanderung an den Silvetstri Kratern mit Peppe entschieden was durch sein vermitteltes Wissen sehr schön war! Die Verkostung ist nicht aufdringlich und bietet nur Sachen aus dem Nationalpark an! Eine tolle Tour für alle Altersklassen. Würde ich wieder machen!!!
