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.

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!

Fantastic experience and tour guide.

Amazing excursion! Despite the bad, stormy weather our tour guide, Saldo, picked us up from the hotel on time. He showed us the villages of Mt Etna with a trip to a honey making shop, then a tour of a lava cave before the short hike to the peak of the Silverstri Crater. By the time we reached the peak above the clouds, we then saw our sunset. Saldo’s English was brilliant and he was very knowledgeable of the history of Mt Etna. We fully recommend the tour.

The trip was amazing! We witnessed a superb sunset.

The trip was interesting, fun, and it allowed us to discover Etna’s mesmerising landscapes, as well as the delicious local culinary products. The tour’s logistics were well set in place. The car arrived at the hotel at the appointed time. Our guide, Salvo, was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and charismatic, answering all our questions and paying special attention to all the tour participants’ needs. We were also lucky enough to have clear skies, so we were able to watch the sunset from the top of one of the Silvestri craters, surrounded by very few other tourists. The colours were breathtaking and made the trip all worth it. It’s an experience that I would recommend to anyone coming to Sicily.
