About
Discover Mt. Etna without a strenuous hike to the summit, and check out a lava cave and the Alcantara Gorge, too. This day trip from Taormina showcases the history-rich foothills and woodland around Europe's largest active volcano, forgoing the need to scale any steep hills. A traditional Sicilian lunch with wine from the volcanic region is also included.

What to expect
  • Leave your Taormina hotel in the early morning and travel to the foothills of Mt. Etna. Arrive at the volcano’s base for a guided hike around beguiling lava formations, craters, and trees that typify Mt. Etna’s surrounds. When you’ve had your volcano fix, continue to a nearby lava cave and peer into its dark corners, courtesy of a headlamp. Take a break for lunch, savoring three courses of tasty Sicilian fare with wine produced in the Mt. Etna region. As you eat, learn about the mineral-rich volcanic soil that gives the wine its special characteristics. Continue to the natural ravine of Alcantara Gorge that was formed from an ancient flow of lava. Wander in the shadows of the towering cliffs and pose for photos against its striking backdrop. Your tour ends with a convenient drop-off at your Taormina hotel or pre-arranged location.

Amazing Etna, extraordinary Etna people
Extraordinary experience!

Our guide Roberto was the best guide we ever had, more than that, he was like a friend. He showed us the best places on Etna, and Etna it's an extraordinary place.

We will definitely come back!

Surpassed all expectations
Surpassed all expectations. So worth hearing all about Etna from such a knowledgeable young chap. Dario collected us on time as planned and from start to finish of the day guided, informed and generally kept us entertained. He tempered his explanations to make the subject easy to grasp. The wine tasting and lunch was also superb and a great addition to the day. Bumping into Dario twice more during our hols was an added bonus. A delightful young man and a huge asset to the company. That Etna then erupted on our last day in Sicily and the streets of Taormina were showered in tiny volcanic ash and lava particles really was the icing on the cake

Perfect day
Sep 2021 • Solo
What a perfect day! The winery was beautiful. The tour around the etna grounds was amazing and we learned so much about the volcanic activity. The lunch was super tasty and the wines even more! Also the alcantara gorges are definitely worth a visit. Our guide Eddy really knew so much about the environment. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful Etna-Tour with guide Marco!
We participated in the Etna-Tour (Walking on Etna, Lunch and Wine Tasting in a Winery and visiting Alcantara Caves), it was a small group of 6 people and Marco was our guide who speaks italian and english. We really enjoyed the whole tour. It was organized perfectly and Marco was a super experienced guide who explainded in an understandable way the miracle of mount Etna! We recommend the tour to 100 %!

Roberto was an interesting, funny and knowledgeable guide and took us on an amazing tour on Etna, as well as the stunning Alcantara Gorge. The food and wine at the Linguaglossa Winery were superb too.

The locations were beautiful and we took many pictures that will bring back happy memories. Thanks Roberto and Etna People!

Great experience
It was great experience with our nice and well-informed guide Giuseppe. The organization was easy and we did not miss anything. We knew that it was not allowed to go to the summit area at the moment. Otherwise we would have taken another tour to the top.
The food was very delicious and the service was super, only the main dish (noodles) was a bit too small for us after the hike.

AMAZING experience!!!
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had a great time on this tour. Roberto our guide who speaks very well English is an amazing guide full of knowledge and great humour.
We walk on the Etna (easy walk) and watch several craters, got all the explanations on every questions we had. Beautiful views! Then we went to the underground caves. Very interesting stories about these caves.
Finally we made a stop in the forest and have lunch with Etna wine. Group of 6 people, they manage to get couples like us. We really enjoy our experience and highly recommend !
