Die halbtags Tour zum “Etna” kann ich nur wärmstens empfehlen. Die Abholung verlief wie geplant und war der Beginn eines wunderbaren Ausflugs. Peppe unser Tourguide verbreitete ab der ersten Sekunde gute Laune und erklärte bereits auf der Anfahrt zum Etna viele grundlegende Dinge über die Geschichte Sizziliens. Als wir an der Bergstation im Nationalpark ankamen konnten wir frei wählen ob wir mit Peppe die Wanderung an den nahe gelegenen Kratern machen wollten oder aber bis zu den höchsten zugänglichen Punkten weiter wollten. Um von 1800 m weiter nach oben zu kommen gibt es 3 Möglichkeiten- Seilbahn 30€ / E MTB 70€ oder Jeep Tour 70€. Alles gefolgt von einer weiteren Tour mit Guide auf 2500-2800m. Wir haben uns für die Wanderung an den Silvetstri Kratern mit Peppe entschieden was durch sein vermitteltes Wissen sehr schön war! Die Verkostung ist nicht aufdringlich und bietet nur Sachen aus dem Nationalpark an! Eine tolle Tour für alle Altersklassen. Würde ich wieder machen!!!

The tour with our guide Angelo was well organized. We were picked up at the agreed location, driven safely through the area and equipped with the appropriate material for a tour of the grotto. When we arrived at Rifugio Sapienza, Angelo let us choose whether we wanted to hike with the gondola and on foot towards the Aetna summit (accompanied by another guide) or with him to the Silvestri craters. We decided on the second variant and are with us been rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view. Angelo gave us exciting insights into the geology and history of the area, answered all of our questions and took care of all participants. I would definitely book this tour again ;-)

Great tour to see Mount Etna! Our tour guide Andreas was great and very insightful, he answered all our questions and told us many things along the way. Definitely bring something warm to wear. We went mid August and it was about 17 degrees and windy, a lot of people had to buy sweaters in the end, especially if you plan on taking the funicular higher up. The tour of the bee farm was also nice but definitely not the highlight of the trip.
