Mt. Etna 4WD Tour from Catania with Local Food Tasting
US$64.03
Overview
Travel by 4WD from Catania to the slopes of Mt. Etna, one of Europe’s highest active volcanoes. In a small group, you’ll trek through the beguiling volcanic landscape to see craters and the remains of ancient lava flows. Put on a helmet and flashlight to explore a lava-flow cave, and then take a tour of an ancient caldera known as Valle del Bove. The trip then rounds off with a food tasting session with samples of typical honey, oil, and wine from the Mt. Etna area. Numbers are limited to eight for an intimate, small-group experience.
What to Expect

By joining this Etna tour departing from Catania you will see wonderful lunar landscapes and luxuriant woods of Etna Park, houses surrounded by lava and breath-taking views.

This unforgettable guided tour of Etna Mountain will allow you to explore volcanic caves in a safe way, constantly escorted by your hiking guide who will fascinate you by telling stories about the mysterious volcanic phenomena of Etna and finally at the end of the tour, you can taste some typical local food.

This tour starts in the morning in Catania.

  • You will observe the different lava edges of the ancient lava flows (eruptions of 1991/1993) by climbing on the slopes of Etna Volcano.
  • This hike will be enriched by a pleasant walk to discover ancient and new craters (a short trekking on Etna suitable for everyone!), by observing the Ionian coastline from above.
  • You will then explore an amazing lava flowing cave. You will be supplied with the safety helmets and flashlights.
  • Unforgettable tour of the “Valle del Bove”, ancient volcanic caldera.
  • During the sightseeing tour, have a short break in a Laboratory where they produce honey, to taste the local typical food of Etna territory such as oil and wine.

A waste of time and money

We took the trip thanks to the good reviews. Unfortunately it was nothing like what we expected. The 4x4 was a 20 year old Nissan Terrano and we were told to sit in the third row where there is absolutely no room for a sober...More

Hi, we were in a lockable 4x4, so would have thought your luggage would be totally safe. You don’t go off the beaten path and all the guides know each other etc. Our tour was just the two of us, maybe there won’t be so much... More
