There are some people who won’t be discouraged from climbing a mountain, any mountain, even if they hear it’s one of the most active volcanoes on earth, in a near-constant state of erupting. That’s exactly how Sicily’s Mt. Etna can be described, and yet you can still go on a hiking tour of Mt. Etna. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that in order to climb to the upper parts of Mt. Etna, however, you really need a guide.
