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.

This was a massive day. We had an excellent explanation of the volcanic formations and morphology of Etna, a nice trek to an area of inactive craters with very detailed explanations of the morphology of the area, including some fun sliding in the snow :) The day continued with an excellent session of wine-tasting, and olive-oil and food sampling at...

My friend booked the tour online and the company were very responsive and helpful. We wanted to do the tour on a Friday, the company said there wasn't one booked, however they would organise one just to meet our needs. Marco met us at our accommodation and took us to the starting point of our very snowy walk! We were... More

We spent 4 days in total in Catania. We decided to spend the last day exploring the Etna Mount. Definitely a great idea. We booked the day before, the team is well organized, kind and comprehensive. We had Luca as guide, he was fantastic. Full of information, super social, extremely caring about his tourists and genuinely in love with his... More

Just returned from a tour with Paolo. What a fantastic way to spend the day! Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and absolutely made the trip worth it! My wife and I were hesitant to book with a tourist site, but Paulo made the experience extremely personable and absolutely enjoyable. If you only have one day to spend in Sicily, I would spend...

The tour was an amazing experience! My boyfriend and I were thrilled at the views and what beauty Etna has. We enjoyed snow shoeing and the winery so much. I would recommend this to anyone. *just remember to wear boots, we didn't have any and it was a little cold with tennis shoes in the snow shoes and snow.

The guide Alessandro took us to some of the Etna's craters, trekking through snow on a wonderful day. He is very knowledgeable and has passion for his job, and is an infinite source of information. I'm sure if you ask him to name all volcanoes between 40' and 45' latitude north of the Earth, he would know :P Totally worth... More

We booked an Etna winter experience on december the 19th 2016 with Marco. Despite the bad weather, it was a fantastic excursion on the Etna: snow shoes walk, visit of a lava cave, performed by very professional explanations of our guide about volcanism and geology. A great day. Thank you Marco. Melanie and Mathieu from France.
