Your Itinerary

Mount Etna

Etna, in addition to being one of the most active volcanoes in the world, is certainly also one of the most fascinating. Inevitable it is the subject of numerous stories and curiosities. Its geographical position in the center of the Mediterranean Sea, with the sea just a short distance away, creates ideal conditions for developing an incredible diversity of landscapes. Anyone who imagines the volcano as a wasteland consisting only of bare and raw volcanic rock is wrong. The Etnean territory extends from sea level up to 3329 meters, an absolutely variable altitude based on the eruptive activities! This great altitudinal difference in a relatively small space has created a unique ecosystem, within which man for millennia has learned to live together in very particular conditions, always defining it with multiple names, among which A 'prevails in the local meaning. Muntagna.

Valle Del Bove

Based on favorable weather conditions, the itinerary for the Etna Trekking excursion often includes a visit to the Valle del Bove, a magnificent natural amphitheater created by the collapse of multiple volcanic structures of the past. Here the panorama is surreal.

MontataGrande - AgricolTour & Gusteria dell’Etna

Tasting all'agricoltour MontataGrande with tasting of Etna and Sicilian specialties (wine, liqueurs, oil, honey from Zafferana, sweet creams, salty pesto, pistachio from Bronte, etc).

A common tourist trap and a huge disappointment. The company advertises a trip to the crater, which is also the ONLY reason to buy the guide's services. If you want to trek to Etna, guys, buy a return bus ticket in Catania for 6€, a cable car ticket for 50€, and you can climb up and down Etna all day. A guide only makes sense if you want to get up to the crater, where climbing on your own is forbidden. This was also the reason I bought the services of this company. The only decent and good person is the driver, who told us in the morning that we were not allowed to go to the crater because of the weather conditions and that we would therefore just go for a hike halfway up Etna. Of course I didn't want to do that, I wasn't going to give 200€ for that and I wanted a refund. "What's the difference between going free myself and going halfway up Etna with your company? Where is the added value?" "Well... we take a different route through a stand of dwarf trees..." And that's the difference? That's all of it? For €100? A hundred euros? A hundred euros for a different route halfway up Mount Etna?! Of course, there was no refund and my girlfriend and I were so disgusted that we wanted nothing to do with the company and just wanted to go our own way. Our trust was irrevocably gone. So I told the driver to take us to Refugio Sapienza, that we'd buy a cable car ticket there ON OUR OWN, climb part of Etna and he'd wait for us and drive us back to Catania. Yes! We got the most expensive ride from Etna to Catania for the price of two round trip fly tickets Prague - Catania. Careful, guys. There is no ascent to the crater! It's a hike up half of Mount Etna, which you can do on your own and completely free of charge. I wouldn't do anything else with this company even if it was my mother's dying wish. Never, niemals, jamais, mai. One single company and it can ruin your whole vacation.

Favio was a great guide. He was very accommodating, going as far as driving us to a bakery to get lunch for the trekk! We were always in control of what we wanted to do and he delivered spectacular views and an off-the-beaten-track path we asked of him. We had an excellent time and loved Etna.

Ww went to the hiking tour at Mont Etna. Our Great guide Luca who is very knowledgeable and took good care of us. We learned a lot of Mont Etna, Lava, volcano and surrounding area. The farm where we had lunch was fantastic.

We really enjoyed tasting the regional products. Hiking on Etna was a marvellous journey, our guide told us a brief history of the volcano and has shown us beautiful sights, including a view from the side of Etna at sunset.

We enjoyed the hike very much and appreciate the guide sharing his knowledge about vulcanos with us. We learned a lot and can highly recommend the hike. We would do it again, if back in Sicily!

Absolutely Wonderful! My boyfriend and I loved it, and would love to come back again! We loved getting to see so much, and our guide was fantastic!

Great experience! Even though the weather changed a few hours into the tour, our guide didn't just tell us "we probably couldn't go up to the summit craters" but suggested lots of alternative routes and visits, making us have an unforgettable day. At the end tasting of local sauces, creams and liqueurs, a delight!

A fabulous experience! You will see breathtaking landscapes and enjoy explanations and stories thanks to the guide who will accompany you. Our guide, Mimmo, made us fall in love with Etna, telling us little-known details and answering our curiosities, he was able to put us at ease despite the adverse weather conditions. The tasting at the end of the experience was superlative, so much so that it convinced us to literally empty our wallets to buy all the delights on offer.

Our trekking on Etna gave us the opportunity to observe the most diverse panoramas that this special land offers. Fabio was very good at conveying his passion for this area to us. Until next time!
