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. During an easy hike of approx. 45 min. on the craters in the surrounding, you will see the unique landscape with the old and new lava.

Sicilian Olive Oil

Of course, a competent English-speaking guide will accompany you during this guided trip on Mount Etna and you will learn a lot about the history of the volcano with its myths and the current situation there. You will continue the adventurous jeep tour on an off-road track through the pine forests and you will get further insight into the unique and diverse flora and fauna which inhabits the lava rocks.

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 one of the last stops of the Jeep part we will drive to the hardened lava flows, which destroyed the local ski lift during the last big eruption.

You will visit the production sites and you will learn a lot about the local wine production and the importance of Mount Etna in this context. Immerse yourself in the Sicilian culture, by tasting the Etna DOC wines, which have a special aroma due to the unique local conditions and the fertile soil on Mount Etna.

Mount Etna Hike and Wine Tour

Our tour was everything we could have hoped to giving us a taste of Mount Etna and a taste of wine.  Andrea was an excellent driver guide - one of the best.  We were fortunate that we had great weather and were able to experience the beauty of Mount Etna and do a short hour-long hike of its terrain, providing great views and working up an appetite for the wine and food tasting. We had a great small group of people on the tour that we bonded well with and made some purchases of the excellent wine we tasted.  Highly recommend.  Hopefully, you will have Andrea as your driver guide.

Etna and Wine Tour

This was a great tour. Our driver and guide Salvio was terrific. He was very knowledgeable about Mt Etna and the surrounding area. As we were 4 older women touring some of the hike up and down the mountain were challenging, but Salvio made sure we all were safe . He was the best. The lunch and wine tasting were fabulous and all of us purchased wine to have shipped home. What a great day, I would recommend this tour. Five stars for us.

Excellent guide

Fun trip. Unfortunately it rained so we didn’t do the hike, but did do the lava cave. Salvo was an excellent guide who knew a lot about volcanoes. The winery was fun and the wine great. Highly recommend!

Loved it!

Our guide Francesco was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, communicates well and a very pleasant person to spend a day with.  The wine part was also very good. FYI, it's not a lunch it's a feast! Lol During lunch did a tasting of a white, rosa and red. All good but the red was fantastic. Nice wine tour afterwards  Highly recommend
