What you'll do

Experience an unforgettable walking Tour among the most impressive landscapes of the highest and most active volcano in Europe.

We meet at Rifugio Sapienza at 10.30am. From there we’ll start the trekking, a walking of 6 km suitable for anyone who is used to walking. Along the walk the guide will explain to you the main naturalistic and historical features of the territory. We will BRING you on a nature trail across ancient and more recent craters where the new vegetation makes unique landscapes, leading you to unforgettable views at the stunning Valle del Bove where we will stop for lunch.
After that we continue across the slopes of volcanic ash until we return to the starting point where we arrive at about 2.30pm. You will have time to relax in the tourist area of Rifugio Sapienza.


We are ready to offer you a fantastic and authentic experience in one of the most representative areas of eco trekking at Mt. Etna, where IT’s possible to observe many of the different activities of the volcano and to understand what was defined AS an iconic mountain when in 2013 was listed AS A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE

I am an official touristic guide and expert from the area. I propose this activity with an expert naturalistic guide, each of us has a specialization but we all love travelling and we love nature, we practice trekking and we are activists for the environment. Sharing our passions and knowledge with people from all over the world make us happy. Etna has always been present in our lives and today we want to show you our personal point of view. We want to help people visiting our volcano to discover it in an authentic way, giving a local and professional point of view regarding its environment, flora and fauna and evolution, avoiding massive and expensive tours.

The tour with Great and the guide that accompanied us was great. I would highly recommend it...even tho you won't reach crateri sommitali the view of the Vulcan as well as of Catania was breath taking.

The experience was very nice. Greta was very exhaustive with the organizational details and handed me to the thoughtful cares of Rocco, who really knew the aerea an was very passionate about it. We really connected and got to share some very beautiful time together. Keep up with the good work and hope to see you soon in Bologna!

Elisa and Tania are fantastic guides. Not only we had overview of the geological and botanical dimensions of Etna but they have shared several cultural details as well. I recommend the tour for everyone, it is not too much physical, suitable even for families with children. Sándor

Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew Mt. Etna extremely well. She was very conscious of our ability to hike the mountain and checked in with us constantly to make sure we were OK and having fun. Was a very enjoyable experience.

I absolutely LOVED our hike on Mount Etna with Elisa and Tanya, and it was one of the most memorable experiences we had during our time in Sicily. We learned so much about the topography of the area, and really enjoyed spending time with locals. Logistically, everything was impeccable. Elisa and Tanya really know the mountain and we would never have been able to do this trip on our own. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in experiencing the beauty and majesty of Etna with wonderful guides.
