Mount Etna Lava Eruption

Mount Etna Lava Eruption

The Etna is an active volcano and this means that eruptions can occur at all times. Should you be lucky and be in Sicily at that particular time, we recommend our nighttime excursion, to admire the explosions and fresh lava streams from nearby.

A nighttime excursion during an eruption is the best occasion to experience an unforgettable show on the Etna. We’ll reach our starting point on the volcano with an all-terrain vehicle and from there we will start our hike to the viewpoint.

The excursion includes pick up and drop-off at your accomodation in the area of Catania or Taormina, drive-up to the starting point of our hike and an experienced English-speaking guide, who will explain you the aspects of the volcano and the eruption.


  • During the tour a guide will explain you the most interesting phenomena of the eruptive Volcano and will inform you about plants and animals.
  • We recommend sturdy shoes, adequate clothes according to the weather, a bottle of water and DO NOT FORGET YOUR CAMERA, of course!
  • In the area range of Taormina and Catania pick up and drop-off at your hotel, camping, pension, holiday house, railway station, port, etc. is included. Possibility to meet at the highway exit (in case you travel with your own car).
  • Rental of trekking shoes on request. €5,00
