Overview
Brooding Mount Etna dominates Sicily’s eastern landscape and the local tourist industry to boot. There are dozens of Etna tours to choose from and it can be a challenge to find one that stands out. This tour does just that by combining a visit to Parco dell’Etna and a lava cave with a stop at an organic farm to sample wine, honey, and olive oil. Also, you’ll have the option of ascending farther up the mountain than tours that stop at the base.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your hotel in Catania, or the central train station or port. Begin the roughly hourlong journey to Rifugio Sapienza, the base station at the foot of Mount Etna. En route, your guide tells you about the history and geology of the volcano.

Reach Sapienza and trek up the volcano’s slopes along a trail, rising to an altitude of 6,562 feet (2,000 meters). Speak to your guide about trekking higher up the mountain, if you wish, and opt to continue by cable car or minibus for an extra cost.

Afterward, make your way back to the base of the mountain, don a helmet, and explore a lava cave.

Hop back on the bus for the journey back to Catania. Along the way, stop at an organic farm, and sample local wine, honey, and olive oil.

Finish the tour with a drop-off at your hotel or original departure point.
