Your tour begins with pickup from your Taormina hotel in time for an 8.30am departure. After meeting your guide and small group of up to 8 people, set out on the around 1-hour journey to Mount Etna.
On arrival, follow your guide on an around 2.5-hour hike in the foothills of the active volcano. Trek around the rugged lava fields, volcanic craters, and ancient woodlands, then strap on a head torch and venture underground to explore a natural lava cave.
After working up an appetite, head to a local restaurant to enjoy a 3-course lunch of delicious Sicilian cuisine, including tasty appetizers, pasta dishes, and an indulgent dessert. Accompany your meal with a selection of fine wines from the Etna wine region and learn more about the grapes that are grown in the fertile volcanic soils.
After the wine tasting, continue to another one of the region’s natural wonders — the Alcantara Gorge. Discover how the gorge was carved out by an ancient lava flow as you walk beneath the dramatic cliffs and visit impressive viewpoints, where you’ll have plenty of opportunity to take photos.
Back in Taormina, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 6.30pm.
