Etna Morning Trip

218 reviews
Mt. Etna can get quite warm during the summer months, so beat the heat on this morning hiking tour of Europe’s tallest active volcano. Follow a guide to visit old craters, spot lava flows, and explore a lava cave by headlamp. This trip is perfect for hikers of all abilities, and allows you to see Mt. Etna from many different angles. Hotel pickup and drop-off makes for a seamless experience.

This was an amazing experience. Although I travelled solo, I took this excursion with two other people who were staying at the same accommodation. We were picked up by our guide, Alfio, who was very welcoming and friendly. During the whole trip he explained us so much and told us a lot about not only Mount Etna but as well Sicily’s history. I could have spent several days with him and not get bored. We went to see several places (cave, lava flow of 2002, the skistation, Mt Satorius,...) with the help of the great driving skills of our guide in the 4x4. Very professional, very friendly, just a great experience in every way! Thank you Alfio!

Yesterday we went together with Alfio and our family on a trip to Mt Etna. What a perfect day! Off road to places one normally won’t get. Views that were magnificent, impactfull and respectfull. Alfio showed us everything and answered all our questions on the vulcano, on flora on the wildlife but also on Sicily. We have done quite some guided tours in our lives but Alfio can be ranked in the top 3 if not number 1.

Our tour guide Giacomo picked us up in his 4 x 4 at 0815 from our hotel and took us on a fantastic tour of discovery, history and amazing landscapes. Giacomo had an infectious love for Etna and his work, he was knowledgeable, humorous and very personable. We started at a small chapel on the site of two lava flows in the 1970’s and then went onto see a lava cave at Grotta die Ladroni. We then had a coffee stop where we had amazing views of Etna which was having activity with smoke billowing from three craters. There wasn’t a cloud in site at the time so we had a perfect view of this activity. Onward to an hour long walk at Monti Sartorius with landscapes that were utterly incredible. We then visited a couple of other areas of interest before stopping for lunch at Benvenuti al Refugio Ragabo, a very nice lunch was had. We spent the afternoon primarily at the Gole Alcantara geological park. We were back at our hotel by 1700. This was a fantastic day tour made all the better thanks to Giacomo. Highly recommended.

We had the most fantastic tour yesterday 21-8/19 with the best guide ever (Giacomo Strazzeri) from this company Giacomo knowledge and passion for his subject was infectious. You will learn and experience the gas Itai game history, geology , and changing faces of this marvel. Make sure you visit the ice caves (Grotto dei Ladeoni) We were fortunate to spend a few hours trekking on top of the lava flows from 1865 and 2002 and witness the lava bombs and fake gold and silver. The scenery is truly incredible and a bucket list experience for everyone . The wine farm at Murgo perfect way to finish things off - but leave specs for the 4 courses and bubbly Giacomo - you a star and we hope to return

We got picked up by our guide Giacamo with a Land Rover at 8.30am for a 1/2 day Etna tour in a small group of 8 people. We knew instantly it would be a great trip: he was very friendly, passionate and knowledgeable; not just about Etna, but about the area in general. Up Etna we had a good walk and he showed us and explained to us lots of stuff inc. about crators, lava flows, caves etc etc. It really was great, one of the best guides and tours we have ever had :-) THANK YOU Giacamo. (Kathrin & Nick from Berlin)
