Had a fab day out on Mt Etna.
A long drive up to the cable car but a very scenic ride.
A long cable car ride up onto Etna followed by a ride in a tractor as high as was possible to go given volcanic...More
As others have said in their reviews, you catch a cable car part way, then a 4x4 bus, then walk from 2900m. You see an amazing lava landscape on the way to the base of the crater, then up the slope on a fairly easy...More

I'll never see 49 again and I was really worried whether I would be fit enough to do the hike, but I am so glad I did. We were a party of 2 middle aged persons and a 13 year old and were accompanied by...More
Unfortunately the weather was bad at the top and not possible to reach the top. The guide offert another Tour around Etna. The best trekking ever. What spectaculaire surroundings. The guide told us a lot about the vulcano, the history and how to walk safely....More
There can be no more compelling reason to visit Etna than to go to the top and this tour does exactly that. It was a perfectly clear day, puff clouds, unlimited visibility. The tour is safe and moves at a comfortable pace on well worn...More
Don't hesitate to do the full Etna tour with Gruppo Guide Alpine Etna Sud. These guys are safe, experienced and amazing. Our guide Peppe was awesome and did the tour in both English, which was flawless and Italian. He answered every question. Take some food...More
