We are in love with the volcano Etna! But, differently, we offer excursions more informal and engaging with outstanding itineraries.Our guides, professional and adept, will lead you to the discovery of the volcanological and ethnographic aspects of Etna, as well as its flora and fauna. A picnic of Sicilian flavors for a festive break accompanied by good local wine will also enable you to remember this day not just as a simple excursion but also as an experience brightened by colors and emotions. The collected feedback from all the B&Bs and Hotels have left us able to individualize suggestions, itineraries and qualified people able to transform the excursions around the volcano into an authentic experience.

My partner and I were booked on the Wine Tasting Experience. We were collected precisely on time from Catania station by our guide, Marco, who had already collected the rest of our group. For the entire journey, Marco was full of interesting facts about the volcano, the towns and villages through which we were travelling, and about the local countryside.... More

We saw the lava, explored a very dark cave, and went to the top of the crater, also saw the smoke from another crater in a distance. It's safe,and very very exciting! The guide also introduced us some geographic knowledge and the special plants on the volcano. Traditional local food and wine provided. It's really worth the price! I'll recommend... More

This one is special and our wonderful, enthusiastic guide Alessandro explained in detail why! She is the big Mama of volcanoes surrounded by her children. She is not dangerous but a source of life itself because of the water and fertility she provides. The trip was really memorable and all the practicalities worked well, including borrowing gloves and jackets which... More

As part of our holiday in Catania we booked a visit to Etna with Etna Experience, and it could not have been better. It was really easy to make arrangements for the booking, and Rosaria and Natalia were very clear and helpful in answering our questions. We asked for jackets and snowboots (you never know in March!), and they were... More

This is an easish and relaxing full day tour though you will be out walking for a bit more than two hours around Etna's craters. We went with one other family and a couple and Paulo, our guide, did well with explanations in English and Italian as well as talking Spanish with my husband. We wanted to visit Etna and... More

This day long tour starts with a hotel pick up in a Landrover and ends in a hotel drop off. To describe all the amazing and fascinating stuff that happens in-between would require and essay and maybe spoil a few surprises for those reading this.

The tour was amazing! I would definitely recommend it to everybody. The price for under 24 year olds was 49€, that includes a lunch with wine and desert. Our guide (Paolo) was awesome and very passionate about his job. The tour was about 9h long with a 1h self explore visit of Taormina, 2h hiking on the Etna about 2000m... More
