Overview

This trip is not just for those interested in geology: anyone who loves nature and breathtaking landscapes should join us on this special excursion. Our 4X4 vehicles allow us to visit the unspoiled natural beauty that makes Mount Etna so famous, while avoiding the crowds of tourists. Enjoy extraordinary scenery, ancient forests, black lava fields left from previous eruptions, volcanic craters, lava caves and other natural wonders accessible only to those with the right set of tires.

We had a group of 17 people including 10 children on the full day Etna and Alcantara tour. Our guides were absolutely fantastic, and our lunch at the winery was perfect. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
