    hrs Estimate Duration

Conquer Mount Etna via coach, cable car and 4x4 mini-buses on this epic adventure. You’ll agree the vista-filled ascent to Etna’s summit along circuitous roads past charming mountain villages and through barren, rocky landscapes is almost as remarkable as the volcano itself. Arriving at the inactive Silvestri craters, more than 6,000 feet above sea level, you’ll discern numerous remnants of lava streams from previous eruptions coating the craters’ slopes. From your fabulous perch, you’ll revel in seemingly endless vistas of the shimmering Gulf of Catania and the surrounding fertile, volcanic landscape, today protected as the island’s first national park. If you wish, shop for souvenirs before boarding a cable car to the base of the main craters, enjoying sweeping views of the eminent mountain as you ascend. You’ll transfer to specially-outfitted 4x4 mini-buses that will convey you to formidable craters found at a height of over 9,500 feet above sea level. Accompanied by a professional alpine guide, explore the exhilarating volcanic phenomena up close, perhaps opting to take a 20-minute walk to view the most recent lava flow. On this unforgettable tour, allow the unbridled, primal beauty of Mount Etna to stir your soul.
