Overview

The volcanic landscapes around Mt. Etna are widely considered among the most fascinating in Italy, but they’re not always easy to explore without a guide. This adventurous half-day bus and hiking tour from Taormina includes food-tastings in Zafferana Etnea and a visit to the Parco dell’Etna. Delve into a lava cave with a guide, follow winding trails to the Rifugio Sapienza at 6,200 feet (1,900 meters) above sea level, and watch the sunset over the Silvestri craters.
  • Half-day Mt. Etna sunset tour from Taormina
  • Sample locally made honey, olive oil, and wine in Zafferana Etnea
  • Explore lava caves and hiking routes in the Parco dell’Etna with a guide
  • Learn of the region’s volcanic geology
  • Watch the sun set over the Silvestri craters from an altitude of 6,200 feet (1,900 meters)
  • Tour includes round-trip travel from your accommodation in Taormina and Giardini Naxos
Begin your tour with a pickup at your accommodation in Taormina or Giardini Naxos. Then, travel out of the city to the historic town of Zafferana Etnea—known for the quality and diversity of its produce. On arrival, visit a local organic farm and sample the honey, olive oil, wine, and other traditional products for which the town is famous.

Next, strap on your helmet and explore a lava cave in the Parco dell’Etna with your guide. Along the way, admire ancient rock formations in the molten landscape and gain insight into the Parco dell’Etna’s complex geology.

Hike along winding trails through the Parco dell’Etna to the Rifugio Sapienza at 6,200 feet (1,900 meters) above sea level. At the summit, admire sweeping views over the ancient Silvestri craters as the sun sinks on the horizon.

When your time at the summit comes to an end, return to your original departure point to conclude your tour.

Highlight!

My husband and I loved visiting Etna. We sampled local products, walked through a cave, and saw multiple sunsets as we kept walking higher and higher. My only complaint would be that I booked a tour in English, and we ended up being the only two English speaking people in a French language tour which left us isolated from the group. However, I would still recommend this tour.

My father and I greatly enjoyed our time visiting Etna. We sampled local products, visited a cave, and saw a beautiful sunset over the Sicilian landscape. We were even shown a nature reserve near Etna. It was one of the highlights of our journey to Sicily. Would highly recommend!

My wife and I took the Etna Sunset tour May 22, 2017. Enjoyed it very much. The half-day itinerary, including a stop to taste local wines and foods was just right. Our guide, Santi, with Etna Tribe, was informative and engaging and made the drive to and from Etna most enjoyable.
