After booking, the operator will contact you about pickup time.
What To Expect
Hop out of your transport at Rifugio Sapienza, and trek up the volcano’s slopes, along one of the Parco dell’Etna trails that rise to an altitude of 6,562 feet (2,000 meters). If you want to ascend higher, speak to your guide on the day. Other options are available to continue by cable car and minibus, although this is at an extra cost that is payable locally.
Chat with the alpine guides as you walk, then return back down the volcano by minibus and cable car.
Back down at ground level, it’s time to head underground and visit a lava cave with the help of torches and helmets. After exploring the long volcanic cave, start your journey back. Enjoy a final stop along the way at an organic farm in Zafferana, and sample some local delicacies such as wine, honey, and olive oil.
Your Mt. Etna day trip then ends with a drop-off at your original departure point.
