Full description
This beautiful sunset tour of the famed Etna volcano is truly a must-see. Begin with a stop in Zafferana Etna, a little town on the Eastern side Mount Etna, popular for its honey production. Visit one of the town's most famous organic farms for a delicious sampling of typical local products, including honey and wine. Continue on the tour to a lava cave created during the 1792 eruption, and enter the stunning site to learn about lava flow and the forces that create them. Then stroll along the mountain trails to Mount Etna's Sapienza Refuge, and enjoy a pleasant walk around the lava flows created from the latest eruptions and the ancient Silvestri craters dating back to the 1892 eruption. From this supreme peak, watch the sun set over the breathtaking landscape before returning to your hotel in the evening.

The tour was fantastic! Andrea, our tour guide was a great mix of informative and free. We had both English and French speakers in our group and he made both groups feel welcome and answered all our questions. The crater hike with sunset was the highlight, great for golden hour photographs!

To experience the sunsets in the lunar landscape of the crater mountains was uplifting. The stop in the shop with regional products was ok, but not absolutely necessary for me. Our guide took a lot of time and knew a lot about the Etna, volcanoes themselves and Sicily, super exciting !!!

Exceptional!

Although it was raining the tour was great! Our guide was very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed every minute. It was cool to learn about the history/geology of the volcano. It was also fun to explore a cave and some craters! I’m sure if the sun was out then the sunset would’ve been beautiful!
