Full description
Begin your journey by boarding a coach with your friendly and knowledgeable tour leader. This will take you approximately 1900 meters (about 6233 feet) up Mount Etna, where you will then switch to jeeps in order to get within a safe proximity of the main crater area at 3000 (about 9840 feet) meters elevation. During your ascent, you’ll be escorted by licensed guides of the CAI - Italian Alpine Club.
Mount Etna is an active volcano on the east coast of Sicility, and the tallest active volcano in Europe, standing at 3,350 meters (about 10990 feet). It’s also one of the most active volcanoes in the world and in an almost constant state of activity since its first eruption about half a million years ago.
After reaching the summit, stop to experience a stunning sunset as the fading sun’s colors cover the volcano, the Valley of the Bove, and all of the expansive surroundings. Following the sunset, return by jeep to 1900 meters, at which point it will be time for a wonderful dinner in a local restaurant to finish off the evening.
