Ride in style and take a cable car and Unimog jeep to the top of Mount Etna, Europe’s highest and most active mountain. Perfect for friends and family looking for a fun-filled adventure, you’ll get to reap the panoramic rewards at the summit without ever having to break a sweat!
With your expert alpine guide, you will get to safely discover the craters at the summit and take in the spectacular views around you from an elevation of 3000 meters.
After being picked up at your accommodation in Catania or Taormina, you will be driven in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle in the direction of the staggering Mount Etna. As you drive towards the mountain, you will pass through the small towns of Pedara, Nicolosi, Zafferana, Etnea, and cold lava fields that were formed over the years. After reaching “Rifugio Sapienza Etna”, you will start your tour!
Once you reach an altitude of 2500 meters by cable car, you will get up to 2900 meters in a unique, Unimog jeep that will take you straight to the foot of the main crater called “Torre del Filosofo”. From this vantage point, you could even have breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea on a clear day!
Your alpine guide will accompany you during this 40-minute tour where you’ll get to visit the smoking hot craters that were created after Mount Etna’s eruption in 2002-2003. You’ll also get to learn more about Mount Etna and the wild flora and fauna that have made this area its home. When you head back to “Rifugio Sapienza Etna”, you will get to have a traditional Sicilian lunch at a chalet before exploring a real lava cave!
