Premium Etna Sunset
Excursions & day trips

Premium Etna Sunset

Watching the sky light up in a variety of orange hues and then burn out into darkness while standing atop a volcano is unique sensation. This dramatic tour takes you to Mt Etna – a must-visit when in Sicily. You'll head to a height of almost 3,000 metres to catch the sunset and then feast on a traditional meal. As part of a select group of no more than 19 guests, you'll go on a minibus drive to Mt Etna. As the terrain becomes rockier, we switch to a 4x4 vehicle. There'll be stops to take in the harsh, lunar-like lava-smothered landscape as we make our way to 2,900m above sea level – the highest point that's safely reachable.Make sure you're wearing comfortable walking shoes and warm layers – it gets cold at high altitude. After admiring the views from what's almost the top, an expert alpine guide will take to a less exposed 2,500m, where you'll watch the sunset in comfort. Then on the way back, we'll stop at a chalet for a typical Sicilian dinner.

Isola Bella Mini-cruise

Isola Bella Mini-cruise

Sicilians like to be direct. So when it came to naming the tiny islet of Isola Bella – it means ‘Beautiful Island' – there was only ever going to be one option. The pine-clad rocky outcrop that is Isola Bella is a nature reserve known for birds like kingfishers, peregrine falcons and herons. When you reach the island, the boat will moor outside the Grotta Azzurra and Grotta Del Giorno sea caves for swimming and snorkelling. After you've had the chance to spot sea urchins, starfish, shrimp and eels among the coral, the boat will transfer you back to the harbour for yet another chance to take in the great coastal scenery.
