Itinerary

Once on-board of our 4×4 jeeps, we will make our way towards Etna’s hill. We will leave the wonderful “Riviera dei limoni” (Lemons’ coast), to approach Etna’s villages. We will then get on the road that leads through the volcano’s slopes, crossing old mulattiere (ancient mule drivers’ roads) and coalmen paths, we are soon at about 1000m altitude where a protected area of 720km² begins. We also come across cold and dried lava flows that, like black highways, tear the mountainside.

Direction: Etna Park

(Tour details could be decided according to the group needing).
Surrounded by uncontaminated greenery, we can enjoy breathtaking views walking between chestnut trees, pines, oaks, beeches as well as endemic plants like Etna’s birch and Etna’s brooms. We will get to the edge of the lateral crater, to the exact point where incandescent lava used to come out from volcano slope.

Visiting the craters

Let’s deeply penetrate in the heart of the wood to discover what’s hiding below the volcanic hard surface. Suddenly a crevice in the ground appears by our eyes: one of the about 190 Etna lava flow caves. We start our underground adventure: leaving the surface, we enter into the mountain deepness to discover its most hidden secrets, visiting a lava flow cave1.

Lava flow cave

After the trekking, we will head towards one of the most famous winery of the area, to learn about and taste volcanic wines. The tasting provides for well matched combinations of local foods and wines, to enhance at most this land’s nectar. Among a wide variety of cheeses, sausages and typical dishes, our sommeliers will let you taste the best of the wines produced by the grapes that grow on the volcanic soil. Of course, the whole tour and tasting will be enriched by our guide that will give you information on Etna’s viticulture and winemaking.

Visit to vineyard, winery and wine tasting

After a lengthy exploration of Mt. Etna and after having satisfied our senses, we will have reached the end of our adventure together. See you on the next adventure!
