Overview

Pack in sightseeing, hiking, spelunking, and wine tasting on this day trip to Mount Etna, the largest live volcano in Europe. From Rifugio Sapienza, choose to hike or take a cable car and off-road minibus (extra cost) farther up the mountain. You’ll explore a lava cave, and visit a local winery to sample local food and wine. Hotel pickup and drop-off make for a hassle-free experience.

What to Expect
After pickup for your hotel, the port, or the train station in Catania, ride for roughly and hour to Rifugio Sapienza, stopping at viewpoints for photos of the volcano and surrounding countryside.

On the way up to Rifugio Sapienza, your guide tells you about the history and geology of the volcano. Visit the sites of recent eruptions and the Silvestri Craters.

Upon arrival at Sapienza, choose to hike to an altitude of roughly 6,500 feet (2,000 meters) by Parco dell’Etna nature trails, or reach 9,500 feet (2,900 meters) by cable car and 4X4 minibus (extra cost). The latter option includes stops at the Torre del Filosofo and southeast crater.

On your back down the mountain, pick up flashlights to explore a lava cave.

Finally, visit a winery to sample sparkling and local wines with cheese, cured meat, and olive oil before drop-off at your departure point.

Great Tour of Mt Etna

Etna tribe tours did a great job exposing our group to Mt Etna. Our tour guide, Simone Pulvirenti, was excellent in sharing information and answering our questions. He picked us up at our hotel and stayed with us the entire time. I highly recommend this...More

Etna and wineries

I recommend Etnatribe for your day trips from Catania to mount Etna. Guides are experienced and friendly and will explain everything about Vulcano. The 2 hours walking at 2000 mt really worth and wine and food tasting at Murgo winery is a must-do experience
