We are in love with the volcano Etna! But, differently, we offer excursions more informal and engaging with outstanding itineraries.Our guides, professional and adept, will lead you to the discovery of the volcanological and ethnographic aspects of Etna, as well as its flora and fauna. A picnic of Sicilian flavors for a festive break accompanied by good local wine will also enable you to remember this day not just as a simple excursion but also as an experience brightened by colors and emotions. The collected feedback from all the B&Bs and Hotels have left us able to individualize suggestions, itineraries and qualified people able to transform the excursions around the volcano into an authentic experience.

We booked this tour on our day in Sicily as part of a cruise. The company was extremely accommodating in terms of adjusting the schedule to fit our needs with the cruise. They provided everything we needed, the guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed the experience! The lunch was also fantastic! I would highly recommend.

Our multinational group had Tony as a guide, who not only knows a lot about vulcanism and the Etna, but also was a source of information about the local fauna & flora, Sicilian food, history and life in Italy in general.

Marco was our tour guide. Very personable, very focused on safety, the environment and ensuring his guests were the best informed as possible! We learned so much from the tour stops, the walk up the craters, the lunch at the winery, even the bee stop! We would highly recommend Marco to anyone who is interested in a detailed knowledge of...

What a Fantastic experience but be warned if you have a fear of heights or enclosed spaces.I thought the cable car however was Great fun. Also make sure that the top of Etna is clear as you will just be walking through cloud otherwise.

We did the solo trekking and loved the entire day walking through varied landscapes and learning about Mt Etna and volcanoes in general. Alessandro was very passionate and knowledgeable about all things volcanoes! Having a panini lunch in a crater was a highlight! We expected more trekking so it's definitely suitable for inexperienced trekkers.
