Etna Shore Excursion for cruise ship passengers: Highlights
Enjoy a complete experience discovering Mount Etna.
Have an off-road adventure in a 4x4.

Pick-up and drop-off at Catania Port
We will pick you up at the port of Catania with our off-road vehicles (among others the popular Land Rover 110) and head in direction Mount Etna. During our adventurous drive up to the volcano, partially off-road, over cold lava streams we will cross hundreds of years old forests and make several stops to visit some of the most beautiful sites on Mount Etna by foot, accompanied by our English-speaking guide at all time.
The shore excursion includes an easy walk to the impressive “Monte Fontana” and a visit of the famous valley “Valle del Bove”. Wandering through old and new lava flows, walking on extinct craters and equipped with helmets and flashlights you will enjoy an unforgettable experience visiting a real lava cave, where ice was produced centuries ago.
Our English-speaking guide will show you the variety of plants and animals that populate our active volcano. While walking through ancient forests you will learn a lot about Mount Etna vegetation and wildlife. The last stop of our half-day tour are the cold lava streams at Piano Provenzana, which had been destroyed during the last big eruption.
