Itinerary of the "Etna Eruption Live Tour"


We meet at Etna north, south, east or west, or if you like we can pick you up from the hotel. The main thing is that the adventure begins!

One hour before sunset we meet at the starting point so that we have time to do the hike in daylight, look around and discover the wonders of Etna.
(If you are missing some of the recommended equipment, let us know in time and we will equip you).

We begin to discover the volcano. Etna covers 1250 square kilometres of volcanic soil and these are not all the same; on our tour we can marvel at enormous differences. Whether we are walking through a hundred-year-old forest, crossing a lava flow a few months old or walking through a channel of volcanic ash as fine as powder, the change of scenery on Europe’s largest active volcano is incredibly vast and simply amazes everyone.


Etna, the eruptions and generally all natural phenomena are a constant surprise. So I can’t tell you exactly what will happen, but we will probably go our way – with a hum, an explosion and a column of ash in the background – and thus already get a small foretaste of what we will later enjoy to the full.

Once we reach the vantage point, we make ourselves comfortable and enjoy the show – each in our own way. We settle down to admire the natural spectacle that has been repeated for millennia.
There will be those who pull out tons of photo equipment, those who have something to munch on, or those who snuggle up in a blanket. And who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky and we’ll have brought a bottle of wine to empty in front of one of the most intoxicating spectacles nature can offer.
