Sunset Mount Etna Tour from Taormina

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Greet your courteous host at a central Taormina location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe. Admire breathtaking scenery as you begin to ascend the sloping side of the mighty volcano, listening to fascinating facts from your guide as you travel. 

    On arrival at an altitude of 5,906 feet (1,800 meters) above sea level, clamber into a powerful 4x4 jeep to continue your journey to Mount Etna’s upper craters. Disembark at the volcano’s higher peaks and delve into the fascinating history of the volcano as you behold petrified rivers of lava.

    Capture photographs of dramatic craters and hear exhilarating tales of past eruptions while watching the sun’s majestic descent. Absorb vistas of the Sicilian hills bathed in fiery orange light and then return to your jeep for the short journey to a restaurant at the foot of Mount Etna. 

    Pleasure your palate with meals from a traditional Sicilian menu (own expense) while chatting with your fellow explorers. Sated, return to the coach and relax during the journey back to Taormina, where the tour concludes.

    A waste of money. We paid 130 euros each and the weather was appalling. Most of us never got out of the 'jeep' ( it isn't really a jeep..more of an eight-wheeled coach thingy). What's more we had to hire jackets at 4 euros each...More
