Full description

Ascend to the summit of the craters of Mount Etna, one of the most coveted excursions a hiker can make. Hike in full safety with an authorized alpine and volcano guide, and marvel at the beauty and wonder of the highest active volcano in Europe.   Depart from Sapienza Refuge in Nicolosi, and ascend 2,504 meters by cable car. Then, ride in a 4x4 Jeep up to 2,900 meters, to begin your hike. You’ll hike 1.5 hours uphill, passing many craters and taking long pauses to take pictures and rest.

Excursion magnifique Ça n’a pas de mot pour expliquer C’est grandiose ! Super bien expliqué par les mails de GetYourGuide, On est mis en relation avec le guide qui nous met au courant la veille de la faisabilité de l excursion. Eduardo était notre guide , très pro parlant français anglais et italien, très gentil, serviable et passionné . Notre accueil s’est fait au bar du refuge de Sapienza où nous avons été équipés de chaussures bâtons et coupe vent compris dans le prix . Je recommande vivement GetYourGuide. Laurence

Unfortunately due to bad weather we didn't get to climb Mount Etna as the original tour date had to be moved due to bad weather. I've given 5 stars as Edoardo (our guide?), kept us informed on whether we could climb Etna the following day. Unfortunately, the weather gods were against us. Edoardo arranged a full refund for our trip, which we were very grateful for.

We were lucky that the sky was clear in the morning and that we were able to enjoy a beautiful view. Unfortunately, the sky closed in the afternoon and we experienced snow and dense fog as a result of an enormous cold. Unfortunately we couldn't go to the top because there was an increased activity of the volcano. But partly because of the guide we got to have a great experience.
