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.

Mt Etna & Winery Tour

This was an amazing experience. I would highly recommend this excursion. Our guide, Antonio was amazing as well! He made sure everyone was taken care of ... especially me since I was not able to participate in all the activities. We did off roading near Mt Etna in a Mercedes not a Jeep as I had expected so we definitely were going in style & comfort. All the guides we came in contact were very knowledgeable and courteous as well. We experienced a very in depth tour of the winery as well as a wine tasting. We were served an extravagant lunch that just kept going and going until we could not eat another bite! And a plus for us was that they did pick us up at our hotel in Taormina! Rating A+

Wonderful Experience

Our guide was great. He was knowledgeable of Etna and was willing to adjust his hiking pace depending on the group’s capabilities. The tour and lunch of the vineyard was the only part that could use improvement. We came when the place was slammed with a lot of other groups and so food and wine took longer than expected. Also, some tables had incomplete good items. Still, an excellent experience.

Excellent day

Andrea was our guide for the day. He is a great guy with a ready smile. Andrea was very informative about the history of both Etna and Sicily. We were with one other couple. For the Etna trek he made sure we were all comfortable with the pace and took rests as required. The Limoncello and Etna Fire at the end of the trek were most welcome! We then went to the winery, learning the history during a tour with other groups and then having a lovely lunch and wine tasting. Lunch was simple but tasty food - olives, cheese, tomato, bruschetta, pasta, sausages and a pistachio pudding. I am vegetarian and there was plenty for me to eat. Wines accompanied each course. Then it was a drive back down the mountain to Taormina. A thoroughly enjoyable day with much fun and laughter, Andrea having put us all at ease. A great day out!
