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.

We had this tour with Simone. He was an excellent guide. I was suprised of how much he knew about the vulcano, wine and over all Sicily. Both parts of the guided tour was amazing and very fun. I would strongly recommend this tour!!
