Eco Green Etna Tour
100% GREEN Etna Tour

Sustainable and responsible travel – be part of the touristic transformation. With our Eco Green Mount Etna Tour you choose the most enjoyable experience, because they do good. It connects adventure with sustainabilty and preserves the unique nature on Mount Etna. Discover one of the most active volcanoes in the world with our Eco Green Tour. We will pick you up at your accommodation with one of our electric vans and are heading in the direction of the volcano.

We are passing idyllic Sicilian villages and some of Sicily’s most famous wine-growing regions and whilst gaining altitude, you will learn a lot about the country, the population and their culture. You will certainly remember the impressive play of colours of the black lava and the extraordinary vegetation on Mount Etna. As we pass by the lava flows of recent years, we will see centuries-old forests and we will stop at some of the most beautiful places on Mount Etna. We will also pass by one of the old houses which was destroyed by an eruption in the past. During an easy and impressive hike of approx. 1 hour on the craters in the surrounding, you will see the unique landscape with the old and new lava.

You will learn a lot about the history of the volcano with its myths and about the current situation during this guided trip on Mount Etna, always accompanied by your competent English-speaking guide. You will continue your electric tour through the pine forests and you will get further insight into the unique and diverse flora and fauna which inhabits the lava rocks. The Mount Etna park flora is extremely rich and varied, and shapes the landscape with its continuous changes.

Like the speleologists, you will be equipped with helmets and flashlights to explore one of the famous lava caves on foot with your guide. These caves were created by a lava flow and they still have special properties. Centuries ago, residents close to Mount Etna used these caves for the ice production.

As the last stop of our Eco Green half day experience we will drive to the hardened lava flows, which destroyed the local ski lift during the last big eruption.

After all these unforgettable impressions we will return to your accommodation.
