    Full Description

    At almost 11,000 feet, Mount Etna is the highest active volcano in Europe and a World Heritage Site since June 2013. On our full day trip to Etna, you will travel by luxury car to reach the cable car station at 2,000 meters at sea level (7,000 feet).

    As you go up, your expert driver will entertain you with commentary about the history and the geological features of Etna, pointing out ancient lava flows. The scenic road to reach the cable car area runs through spectacular vineyards, amazing alpine vegetation and small beautiful medieval villages.

    Once we reach the 2,000 meter line, we will walk around some extinct craters and get ready for an easy to moderate trek, suitable for families with children.

    The ascension starts with a cable car and continues with a special off-road bus that will take you all the way up to the summit where the lunar landscape and stunning views will take your breath away. At this point, you can start the trek near the impressive Central and South-East craters accompanied by expert guides who will get you as close as safety regulations allows to recent lava flows. After returning from the climb, you'll have time to look at the souvenir shops, relax over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and savor a typical Sicilian lunch in one of the great restaurants.

    Don't miss the chance to explore Sicily’s iconic volcano on this private tour with us.
