Etna Excursion: Discover the volcano Etna on our exciting jeep tour
Daily Tours to volcano Etna. We will pick you up at your accommodation in Sicily with our off-road vehicles (among others the popular Land Rover 110) and head in direction Mount Etna. During our adventurous drive up to the volcano, partially off-road, over cold lava streams we will cross hundreds of years old forests and make several stops to visit some of the most beautiful sites on Mount Etna by foot, accompanied by our English-speaking guide at all time.
The half-day excursion includes an easy walk to the impressive “Monte Fontana” and a visit of the famous valley “Valle del Bove”. Wandering through old and new lava flows, walking on extinct craters and equipped with helmets and flashlights you will enjoy an unforgettable experience visiting a real lava cave, where ice was produced centuries ago.
Our English-speaking guide will show you the variety of plants and animals that populate our active volcano. While walking through ancient forests you will learn a lot about Mount Etna vegetation and wildlife. The last stop of our half-day tour are the cold lava streams at Piano Provenzana, which had been destroyed during the last big eruption.
If you book a full day trip, you will have the same morning programme as on the half-day tour but will also enjoy typical Sicilian food at a chalet and visit the famous Alcantara Gorges, which were formed millions of years ago on the north side of the volcano. Between the lava flows a small mountain river. Here you can walk barefoot in the crystal clear and ice cold water of the canyon or (in the summer) have a refreshing swim.
On the way to the canyon we will pass the idyllic Sicilian mountain village Castiglione di Sicilia and in the distance, situated on a slope, we will see Motta Camastra.
At the end of the tour we will drive you back to your accommodation.
