It was nice experience. We saw several craters and went through a lava tunnel. Nice experience overall.

Bellissimo giro sull etna, con una brava e simpatica guida. Speravo ci fosse più 4x4!

On this half-day tour, you will explore the surrounding landscapes of Mount Etna, Italy’s tallest volcano. Climb aboard a 4x4 jeep and journey across the volcanic territory as you ascend to a height of 2000 meters. See paths unspoiled by crowds, lunar terrains, volcanic craters, old basalt lava flows, and much more. Learn about Etna’s history and endemicity from a professional guide as you experience its beauty and appreciate the local flora and fauna. Make a stop along the way to try out local wines, liqueurs, honey, and more. In addition to catching unparalleled views over Valle del Bove, you will also have the chance to walk into a spectacular lava flow cave and explore its deep mysteries with the guide.

If you choose the sunset tour, you will witness the magic of Mount Etna and its natural wonders in the perfect light. And if you choose the morning tour, there will be an added stop at Hornitos, a half-volcano and state shelter. Either way, the experience will be one that will stay with you long afterward.
