  • We start the tour from your accommodation in Catania or a meeting point located nearby and we will move by minivan or SUV car.
  • Then from the Rifugio Sapienza area we will take a cable car and special off road track (unimog) to get to the height of 2900 meters. Here we will take a 40 minutes easy walk with the assistance of alpine guides obligatory for security reasons. We will admire Crateri Barbagallo – craters from the eruption of 2002 and amazing views of the Ionian Coast, from Taormina to Catania as well as the majestic Valle del Bove (Ox Valley) – a huge natural amphitheater that covers almost the entire eastern flank of the volcano.
  • After that we will stop for a short snack break, during which we will have the opportunity to taste some Sicilian delicacies.
  • Then equipped with torches and helmets we will experience the thrill of descending into a lava tube to admire a unique spectacle literally inside the volcano.
  • During the tour I will tell you a lot of interesting facts about Mount Etna and volcanic phenomena, as well as history and anecdotes referring to the territory dominated by the highest active volcano in Europe.

Definitely the best tour of Etna that is available. The tour was organized perfectly and it took into account constantly changing weather. Asia, who was our guide, chose the path which had the best weather conditions during that day which allowed us to be one of the few groups that day which were able climb the vulcano and experience the majestic views from the observatory located at the 2900 meters. I highly recommend Trails of Sicily for Etna and other tours.
