Highlights
  • See more than just Mt. Etna, and discover the Alcantara Gorge, too
  • Borrow all necessary equipment, such as helmets and even hiking boots
  • Learn about wine grown in the volcanic terrain as you sip local varietals
  • Relax in air-conditioned comfort with coach transport to and from your hotel
What to Expect
Leave your Taormina hotel in the early morning and travel to the foothills of Mt. Etna. Arrive at the volcano’s base for a guided hike around beguiling lava formations, craters, and trees that typify Mt. Etna’s surrounds. When you’ve had your volcano fix, continue to a nearby lava cave and peer into its dark corners, courtesy of a headlamp. Take a break for lunch, savoring three courses of tasty Sicilian fare with wine produced in the Mt. Etna region. As you eat, learn about the mineral-rich volcanic soil that gives the wine its special characteristics. Continue to the natural ravine of Alcantara Gorge that was formed from an ancient flow of lava. Wander in the shadows of the towering cliffs and pose for photos against its striking backdrop. Your tour ends with a convenient drop-off at your Taormina hotel or pre-arranged location.
