Mount Etna Jeep 4x4 Full Day Tour from Catania or Taormina

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Monte Etna, 95031 Catania, Sicily Italy

    The excursion includes an easy walk to the impressive “Monte Fontana” and a visit of the famous valley “Valle del Bove”. Wandering through old and new lava flows, walking on extinct craters and visiting a real lava cave equipped with helmets and flashlights, where ice was produced centuries ago, you will enjoy an unforgettable experience.

    Our English-speaking guide will show you the great variety of flora and fauna: plants and animals which populate our active volcano. While walking through ancient forests you will learn a lot about the vegetation and the wildlife of Mount Etna. Our last stop of the half-day tour will be around the cold lava streams of Piano Provenzana, which has been destroyed during the last big eruption of 2002.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Via Provenzana 37 Localita Piano Provenzana, 95015 Linguaglossa, Sicily Italy

    You will also enjoy typical Sicilian food at a chalet

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Gola dell'Alcantara, via Nazionale Ss 185, 98030, Motta Camastra, Sicily Italy

    Visit the famous Alcantara Gorges, which were formed millions of years ago on the north side of the volcano. Between the cold lava flows runs a small mountain river. Here you can walk barefoot in the crystal clear and ice cold water of the canyon or (during summer) have a refreshing swim.

    On the way to the canyon we will pass by the idyllic Sicilian mountain village Castiglione di Sicilia and we will see Motta Camastra from the distance, which is situated on a slope. At the end of the tour we will drive you back to your accommodation.

    Duration: 2 hours

    First things first: thanks a lot to Salvo our great guide! He did a fantastic job and made the whole trip 10x better. We went on a day which wasn’t the best in terms of weather. Cloudy, foggy and some rain. Nevertheless I would highly recommend doing this tour at any given

    We booked the full day tour to hike around Mt. Etna and to see the Alcantara Gorge. Pick-up was right on time and everything was perfectly organised from that moment forward. There are a number of jeeps that travel together, but it's all so well organised that you feel like
