Begin your 5-hour tour with a pickup at your hotel, the port, or the train station in Taormina. 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 hotel, the port, or the train station in Taormina to conclude your tour.
