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.

Thereafter we are driving to the Sicilian “Cantina”, surrounded by vineyards with a stunning view. 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.

This tour was absolutely fantastic. Antonio our driver/guide was great. Very knowledgeable and personable. The Luxury 4x4 was intact that and very comfortable. The views from Etna are unreal and the lunch along with the wine is the perfect way to end the day. 5 stars! If you're considering this tour, just do it. You won't regret it.

Great experience!

Tour guides were awesome and informative.  Took us to a couple great spots on the mountainside and provided good info.  If you're looking for an intense experience this isn't it. It's an easy hike and leisurely. Wine tasting was also awesome and the lunch was great!

Fabulous insight into Etna

Brilliant day out with Andreas, our host to explore Etna, lava caves and craters, whose knowledge and sense of humour made this day memorable. Great value for money, from being picked up in the luxury 4x4, to many stops at lava caves in a silver birch woodland, ski resort base with lava flows from 2002, running (my son, not me!) down the ash into craters…. Driving back through windy roads to the vineyard, the wine cellars are impressive and afterwards pairing of 5 wines with several courses of delicious local food was a perfect way to taste wine. A full day out, don’t miss doing this on your holiday ! Thanks Andreas !
