Full description

Explore the highest, active volcano in Europe on this day tour from Taormina. Travel by cable car and jeep to the top of Mount Etna with a local guide.

After being picked up, relax as you are driven to visit the highest volcano in Europe with its smoking peak seen throughout Sicily. Drive to the Mount Etna Refuge with the opportunity for refreshments as you ready yourself for further ascent.  Climb higher by cable car up to 2,500 meters. Continue by jeeps up to the authorized upper crater zones with the assistance of licensed guides of the Italian Alpine Club.

This tour is definitely recommended. But we also had the best weather. Again and again the summit of Etna was visible. What I didn't notice when booking, we could even have been picked up in Letojanni. There is insufficient information on this on the Internet. No place names are given.

A very easy tour to get to almost 3000 m on Etna without exerting yourself and exhausting yourself. Punctual transport from Taormina to the valley station of the lift on Etna and back. On the bus you get a little explanation in Italian and English. From the upper station of the cable car, comfortable all-terrain "minibuses" take you to the starting point of a short tour of the crater. A mountain guide greets you and gives you a very good introduction to the activities of Mount Etna.

Very nice trip

The organization was perfect. The statements of the tour guide were informative, but not boring. The long waiting times can not be charged to the tour guide. Unfortunately, some guests did not stick to the agreed departure time, so the others had to wait more than 45 minutes. Thanks to the tour guide, everyone was taken back to Taormina.
