1. Mount Etna: Cable Car, Jeep, & Hiking Tour to Summit

Ascend to the summit of the craters of Mount Etna, one of the most coveted excursions a hiker can make. Hike in full safety with an authorized alpine and volcano guide, and marvel at the beauty and wonder of the highest active volcano in Europe.   Depart from Sapienza Refuge in Nicolosi, and ascend 2,504 meters by cable car. Then, ride in a 4x4 Jeep up to 2,900 meters, to begin your hike. You’ll hike 1.5 hours uphill, passing many craters and taking long pauses to take pictures and rest. Experience the incredible feeling of being on top of the world in this rocky, beautiful landscape with the giant sky above you. After reaching the summit, descend for 2 hours back to the cable car, which will take you to your departure point.

Sadly we couldn’t go to the summit due to volcanic activity, but the trek was still fantastic and the sights were beautiful! Eduardo was an excellent guide, and everything felt very professional. I recommend borrowing hiking boots from them, they were a MUST! We had lovely weather so shorts and a tshirt were enough. The hike was challenging for me but the pace was slow and there were plenty of resting breaks so I was perfectly fine. A once in a lifetime experience, highly recommend!

A well organised trek. Easy to find Edo at the Rifugio. They make sure you are wearing appropriate shoes and clothing before leaving. Provided more appropriate gear at no extra cost

Despite the fact that we couldn't go with the jeep, we had a super nice day. Good guide with a lot of knowledge. Tough but beautiful hike to the craters!!

Although there was no jeep ride, it was an unforgettable experience. Very nice and considerate guides, so that everyone got along well.

Very organized very professional very safe. Eduardo and his colleague were wonderful. You can’t go to Sicily and not do this tour.
