Mount Etna Half-Day Tour
Towering Mount Etna is one of Sicily’s most popular tourist destinations, drawing many sightseeing tours daily. This tour stands out by including round-trip transportation, a guide, snacks, and an almond wine tasting at a mountain chalet. After a casual hike through lava fields and a visit to underground lava caves, you’ll come away having seen more of the volcano than most sightseeing tourists.
What to Expect
Begin your 6-hour tour with an optional hotel morning pickup in Taormina. Meet your guide and small tour group and get on the road for the roughly 75-minute journey to Mt. Etna.

Stop at the foot of the volcano and take a short hike across lava fields. Along the way, your guide tells you about Etna’s geological features and history.

Afterward, don a helmet and grab a flashlight to head underground into a lava cave, which you also explore with your guide. The last stop is a nearby chalet, where you lunch on a Sicilian sandwich, local wine, cake, and almond wine. Relax on the journey back to Taormina and finish the tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

A Must-Do If Visiting Taromina

My wife booked the tour - and I was a little hesitant. Doing a vigorous hike up a mountain wasn't really on my vacation agenda - but I went along and very glad I did. Our guide Salvo picked us up at our hotel -...More

Coolest Volcano trip ever !

Having spoken to our hotel and been given options- none of which sounded like something we wanted to do (and were hideously overpriced even for a hotel reception), my husband went online to ‘have a look’. He came across Etna People and from WhatsApp booking...More

Our guide was excellent and I think the kids would cope well with the lower tour and the cave entry as it's only half a day. I think they'd get a lot out of it and learn a lot. The upper tour is more of an experienced... More
