Full description

Explore the highest, active volcano in Europe on this day tour from Taormina. Travel by cable car and jeep to the top of Mount Etna with a local guide.

After being picked up, relax as you are driven to visit the highest volcano in Europe with its smoking peak seen throughout Sicily. Drive to the Mount Etna Refuge with the opportunity for refreshments as you ready yourself for further ascent.  Climb higher by cable car up to 2,500 meters. Continue by jeeps up to the authorized upper crater zones with the assistance of licensed guides of the Italian Alpine Club.

See the 4 distinct craters at the summit area and more than 300 vents on the flanks, ranging in size from small holes to large craters. Stop to admire the eventual activity of the summit craters in a safety zone according to weather conditions.

Beautiful day tour, with competent tour guide. Everything went well. Punctual pickup! I would have liked to have had a little more time on Etna to visit the Silvestri craters at 1900 m. Since we were back at the hotel at 3 p.m., you could plan a little more time.

Superb trip! The +: top-notch supervision, lots of information about Etna transmitted in the bus, availability of the accompanying person to answer questions, French-speaking guide on Etna (which was not planned!). The -: the companion spoke English a little too quickly for us who did not master the English language perfectly. Maybe a little taste of too short on Etna. I recommend !

Transport and organization was good. The ascent by cable car and jeep took us up to 2,750m. The subsequent lead was less convincing. Maybe it was due to the activity of the volcano. For safety reasons it was not allowed to go higher. It is a great experience to stand on an active volcano.
