Mount Etna is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, close to Messina and Catania. It is the tallest active volcano in Europe, standing 3,329m - the highest mountain in Italy south of the Alps. One of the most active volcanoes in the world and in an almost constant state of activity, volcanic activity first took place at Etna about half a million years ago, with eruptions occurring beneath the sea off the ancient coastline of Sicily.
Hiking on Mount Etna is a unique experience and the Sunset Tour enables guests to discover Etna right to the absolute top of the volcano.
To begin the journey, guests will travel by bus with our friendly and knowledgeable tour leader. After reaching approximately 1800m on the North side of Mount Etna, it is necessary to switch to jeeps in order to get within a safe proximity to the main crater area.
At this point guests will stop and experience a stunning sunset as the fading sun’s colors cover the volcano, the Valley of the Bove and all of the expansive surroundings.
Following sunset, guests return by jeep to 1800m. At this point it is time for a wonderful dinner in a local restaurant.
Warm clothes are recommended and they are available for rent on site with an extra charge.
