A once-in-a-lifetime tour of Mount Etna with an expert guide

No trip to Sicily would be complete without a tour of the formidable Mount Etna, which is the island's resident volcano. It is still active and you can feel the warmth of the volcanic rocks and experience the stunning views on this gentle walking tour of Mount Etna, with transportation from Taormina.

On this 3 hour walking tour you will explore the foothills of Mount Etna and the region of Rifugio Sapienza, which includes the famous Monti Silvestri Craters. If you wish, you can upgrade your tour to include transport to the summit and a walking tour of the rumbling craters as an exhilarating treat.


Important considerations

  • Please take into account the high mountain conditions (strong winds, cold temperatures and snow even in summer).
  • If you suffer from asthma, blood pressure problems, heart ailments and other respiratory problems, this tour is not the one for you but we would be happy to recommend a more suitable sightseeing tour for you, such as a walking tour of Taormina's Old Town. 
  • The route may be modified in bad weather conditions or if there is a risk of volcanic eruption. 
  • We recommend you wear layered clothing, walking shoes/boots and a wind-proof jacket (walking equipment can be rented at an additional cost, if necessary). 
  • Please do not forget to bring a packed lunch as meals and drinks are not included in this tour.
