Mount Etna Eruption Lava Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
We will depart from your accommodation in the late afternoon and will take you with our car / van to our base camp (about 1700mt) where we will leave the vehicle and begin our climb on foot. We will lead you for about 90 minutes along a path that will immerse yourselves through amazing forests first to leave the pace to fantastic volcanic landscapes later on, just in conjunction with one of the most beautiful sunsets you can ever admire on our island.The trail will lead us on the edge of the largest crater (caldera) present on Mount Etna, called Valle del Bove, an exceptional panorama from which to admire hundreds of lava flows overlapping one another (about 2000mt).This will be the perfect place to take the most amazing photos to share on your social networks.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip from start to finish! We were picked up by Lorenzo from our hotel and has a great discussion about the history of etna and the surrounding environment on the way to the 2000m mark. From there we took a cable car and a 4wd to the start of the hike

A day full of excitement and heading up to the summit of Mt Etna. Thank you to my guide Fabrizio for his personal guidance and advice to this volcanic noobie. Would highly recommend for anyone keen for a fun day out in the mountains (yes, May was very chilly to scale the top

This was an amazing experience! On the way up it could be a little difficult, but it was all worth it once you reached the top. The guides were super helpful, they explained everything and helped the once in need. You had enough time to enjoy the view and take lots of pictures.
