I am Claudio, born in South Tyrol and grew up between Germany and Sicily.

The love for the mountains of my birthplace has awakened in me a passion for nature and the volcano Etna.

That’s how I became a hiking guide and together with a team of reliable friends, we founded EtnaWay and fulfilled our dream: to share with other people our passion for nature and Mount Etna!

We are proud to offer a range of unforgettable experiences of high quality and suitable for all, even the most adventurous!

We will show you the highest active volcano in Europe through the eyes of those who, like us, love and respect it. Come with us to discover the hidden treasures of the volcano.

We want our customers to be as excited about this volcano as we are!
