What to expect

Among what you must see in Sicily, Etna is probably the first place! The highest volcano in Europe (3327mt. height) and among the most active in the world, it dominates the whole region with its size. Its spectacular eruptions and the lava flows have always been a source of attraction for visitors from all over the world.

The first stop of your Etna tour is Rifugio Sapienza (1920mt.). From here, you can continue trekking through one of the Etna Park Paths, with an expert guide; alternatively, you can choose the option “Etna alta quota", with extra costs to be paid locally; choosing this option, you will reach up to 2504mt. by telecabine and then, with special 4×4 off-road vehicles, you will reach Torre del Filosofo, at an altitude of 2900 meters above sea level. From here you can admire the imposing central crater, the South-East crater and the historical lava flows that characterize the Etna landscape, in a scenario suspended over the sea.

Continue your tour visiting a local wine cellar. On the slopes of the volcano, in a mysterious blend of lava rock and vines immersed in the scenic beauty of Etna, the owners of the winery will guide you to discover the secrets for the preparation of a DOC wine now appreciated on all markets. Wines will be matched with typical products of the Sicilian tradition, creating an elegant union of enogastronomic Mediterranean culture.
