Full description

Take a beautiful sunset tour of the famed Etna volcano. Explore a lava cave, walk around craters and watch the sun set on the spectacular landscape

Begin with a stop in Zafferana Etna, a little town on the Eastern side Mount Etna, popular for its honey production. Visit one of the town's most famous organic farms for a delicious sampling of typical local products, including honey and wine.

Continue your tour to a lava cave created during the 1792 eruption, and enter the stunning site to learn about lava flow and the forces that create them. Then, stroll along the mountain trails to Mount Etna's Sapienza Refuge, and enjoy a pleasant walk around the lava flows created from the latest eruptions and the ancient Silvestri craters dating back to the 1892 eruption. From this supreme peak, watch the sun set over the breathtaking landscape before returning to your hotel in the evening.

We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide Danilo was absolutely fantastic and made the experience lots of fun he kept entertaining us and was very very helpful and friendly, kept us informed with a lot of information about Etna and Sicily in general. We really enjoyed the stop to taste some food and wine and the sunset view was wonderful. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone.

Pick up right on time and we enjoyed each of the stops. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Be sure to take a heavy jacket/hoodie; sunny and 23 in Catania but 7 on Etna with a 40 km wind blowing - it was cold! Take Meclazine/Dramamine if you are subject to motion sickness - lots of curvy roads. Recommend some kind of sound system in the van - we were in third row and we could hear/understand very little when he talked while driving.

We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide Alessandro was fantastic and made the experience lots of fun - he arrived perfectly on time to pick us up from where we were staying, and kept us informed and entertained throughout with lots of interesting information about Mount Etna. We really enjoyed the stop-off to taste some local food and wine, and the sunset view was stunning. The walk was short and very manageable, but make sure to take some layers as it was cold at the top. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone!
