Etna Excursions

Come and discover the history and curiosities of Etna, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, with our guided excursions. We support sustainable tourism, so we don’t use cable cars or 4x4s, but only your legs to walk and enjoy this living volcano. Our itineraries are suitable for everyone, from families with four-legged friends to more experienced adventurers who want to climb the slopes of the volcano.

Come and explore the north, south and west sides of Etna and discover its beauty and uniqueness even at the lowest altitudes, discovering that its activity has not manifested itself over time only on the summit craters, but also at different altitudes.

You will be able to discover and visit fantastic lava flow caves, Hornitos, eruptions dating back to past centuries, old extinct craters, admire the Valle del Bove, and not only that…you will be able to immerse yourself in its birch forests which in some seasons evoke Scandinavian landscapes, in the laricio pine woods that fill the air of the woods with scent, you will also discover an extraordinary and interesting endemic vegetation together with the presence of centuries-old and monumental trees.

Super visite guidée de l’Etna hors du tourisme. J’ai pu faire la randonnée avec mon petit chien. La guide Clelia est super et m’a appris beaucoup de choses sur l’histoire du volcan et des siciliens. Je recommande. À bientôt Clelia et merci.
