Full description
Ascend to the summit of the craters of Mount Etna, one of the most coveted excursions an aspiring hiker can make. Hike in full safety with an authorized alpine and volcano guide, with whom you will marvel at the beauty and wonder of the highest active volcano in Europe, at 3,340 meters above sea level.  

Departing from Sapienza Refuge in Nicolosi, the cable car will first take you up 2,504 meters. From this point, you’ll ride in a 4x4 Jeep up to 2,900 meters, and at this point, your hike begins. You’ll hike 1.5 hours uphill, passing many craters and taking long pauses to take pictures and rest. There’s no feeling like being on the top of the world in this rocky, beautiful landscape with the giant sky above you. Once you reach the summit, you’ll then descend for 2 hours until you reach the cable car again, which will take you to your departure point.
