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.

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.

The enquire and reservations process was very smooth. The trip was just amazing, Paolo, our guide, was punctual, well prepared and couldn't have done more to make it informative, light, funny and beautiful. I cannot recommend more that when going to Sicily a day trip to Etna is done and that you are well rested to be able to walk... More

We booked this tour on our day in Sicily as part of a cruise. The company was extremely accommodating in terms of adjusting the schedule to fit our needs with the cruise. They provided everything we needed, the guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed the experience! The lunch was also fantastic! I would highly recommend.

Our multinational group had Tony as a guide, who not only knows a lot about vulcanism and the Etna, but also was a source of information about the local fauna & flora, Sicilian food, history and life in Italy in general.
