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.

Super welcome by Eduardo who lent us all the equipment, backpack, shoes, socks, jacket... Ascent by bus 15 mn followed by a beautiful ascent on the volcano, lunch on the edge of the crater. Very good explanations on the history of explosions and lava flows. Very friendly and efficient guide!

Great and interesting tour, the whole family was happy that we did it! Our guide Eduardo has a wide knowledge about volcanoes and there are a lot of things to explain on Etna. Due to recent activities of Etna, the tour was changed and about 500m lower than originally. We got a 20 EUR refund for this change, so all good.

A great experience climbing a volcano. Unfortunately, this was seismically active and so we could not hike to the top of Etna, but to the crater of the 2002/03 eruption. The explanations and descriptions of the guide were very good and understandable. The route you chose as an alternative was very sporty and demanding for non-hikers. Recommended!
