Etna Hiking

Guided excursion by Jeep 4x4

Etna Hiking (half day)

Etna Hiking Hd (Half Day) includes itineraries with walking on undemanding paths, within about 10 km of walking (3/4 hours). This excursion is suitable for those who are in good health and used to walking. Our guides will accompany you to discover the less touristic places and the most fascinating glimpses of the UNESCO World Heritage volcano. You will discover that Etna is not just lava and eruptions. Nature on Europe’s largest active volcano has created real wonders.

It will be a gratification for your senses: the view, with the great views. The sense of smell, with the scents of the woods and endemic plants. Hearing, with the sound of footsteps or roars, if the volcano erupts. These are just some of the emotions that can be enjoyed with trekking on Etna.

Tour Program

ITINERARY 1 | ETNA EAST – VALLE DEL BOVE

The most recommended route in case of good weather conditions is to reach the Valle del Bove, a spectacular and gigantic depression of several kilometers in which most of the Etna eruptions converge, from which it will be possible to enjoy the panorama of the summit craters from a privileged position and in case of eruptions it is often possible to admire volcanic activity. Depending on the preparation of the participants, the guide will decide the difficulty and length of the route.

Main itineraries: Schiena dell’asino(7 km A / R) or Serracozzo (9 km A / R).  

With winter snow or with any dog in tow, the itinerary will be carried out in Val Calanna (lower Bove valley).
