Classic Etna experience

(Half Day)

Mt Etna Volcano is one of the world's most active volcanoes and the most active one in Europe. It has been erupting for several million years. Mt Etna is one of the greatest and most beautiful volcano adventure tour destinations in Sicily. We will be pleased to pick you up at your place at your most convenient time in the morning, (advisable 9,00 a.m.) and drive to mount Etna passing Sicilian towns and old lava flow on the way. We stop at the main square of the village of Zafferana to enjoy the view. During the ascent different kinds of vegetation can be noted. We will reach 2.000 meters (7.000 ft) where we take a walk together to visit the "Silvestri" craters (1892) and the latest new lava flows and craters from 2001/2002/2003, enjoy the desert moon atmosphere! On the way, we will also stop and visit a local family honey farm where it is possible to taste local Etna wine, a selection of natural honey (orange, lemon, eucalyptus, strawberry.), almond pastries, olives, extra virgin olive oil, etc… Driving down from the mount through a wonderful pine tree forest, we will end the day with a visit of the charming village of Giardini Naxos (first Greek colony in Sicily) by the sea, which was hit and covered by an old lava flow (tour duration approx. 4 hours).
