Excursions to Mt Etna from Taormina 

Taormina tours to Mount Etna whit “Sicily Day Trips”. A unique experience climbing up the northern slope of Mount Etna, where we offer tours to visit Etna and the Gorges Alcantara with trekking along paths in direct contact with nature and where you will discover magical places.

The activity on mt Etna

From 1000 meters the countryside consists mainly of birch, pine, cherry, olive trees, and vines which constitute expanses of vineyards, giving breath-taking views. The tour to visit Etna takes SR Mare Neve, a regional road, with our jeep capable of reaching a quota of 2000m in the Piano Provenzana area, northern Etna shelter.

From here we will take you to visit the Sartorius craters along secret natural paths where we will reach a quota of 220 m. Every little detail will be examined, from the vegetation to the volcanic architecture that frames extraordinary views. From the Mount Sartorius ski slope, we will visit an old underground lava flow cave. Ropes and technical equipment will be provided for simple exploration. The morning concludes in a farmhouse under a pine forest where we will stop for a short typical lunch.

Exploring the Alcantara Gorge

The afternoon will be dedicated completely to the valley of Alcantara. The return journey includes a trip to Castiglione di Sicilia, a medieval village of remarkable cultural fame. Immediately after we will arrive at the most famous Canyon in Sicily, the Alcantara Gorge. The result of the erosion of the river upon the basaltic rock over 8000 years. The erosion still continues to this day, even though in some parts, there has been a process of sedimentation with the formation of small sandy beaches on its banks.

Da provare.
L’Etna è una scoperta. Non ti aspetteresti di camminare sulla lava de vulcano.
Anche la visita alle gole di Alcantara non si possono perdere.
Poi Danny è uno spettacolo, guida, autista e cabarettista. Chiedete di lui!
Grazie di tutto

bellissima esperienza. L’ istruttore e autista Denny è stato davvero bravo e disponibile nel suo lavoro. Ci siamo divertiti un mondo. Siamo tornati stanchi ma ne è valsa la pena. Sicuramente da rifare. 🙂

We had a fantastic day with Massimo our guide. He picked us up from our hotel. He was full of knowledge and very easy to chat to. If you are planning on doing this tour please bring longer socks- the tour lends the walking boots but we had ankle socks which were annoying!! We spent lots of time walking and learning about the volcano’s- very interesting! We then left for lunch which was either a bread roll sandwich or pasta-we choose the bread! Lots of choices for fillings, also got a drink and cake for 10 euros, good food at a good cost. What was nice, we had our lunch with the other people on the tour, a family from France and a family from Italy. It was nice to have the time to chat about the day. We then left for the Alcantara gorge, a 45 minute drive and we arrived. We walked down the steps to a fantastic sight, it’s definitely worth a visit! Take wet shoes as lots of stones. The water itself is very cold but once over that it’s amazing to walk up the gorge, absolutely fascinating!! We spent 30 minutes there which was a good amount of time. Then driven home! A very good tour and good value for money, the views were absolutely stunning!

Gita sull’Etna e alle gole dell’ Alcantara fantastica. Ti vengono a prendere da casa con comodissimi autofurgoni a nove posti. L’autista e guida Roberto ci ha accompagnati per tutto il tour, con ascesa sul vulcano fino a 1800 metri, esperienza meravigliosa. Poi pausa pranzo (soli 10 €) in baita nel bosco. Infine nel pomeriggio passeggiata al fresco nel fiume per poi tornare a casa. Consigliatissima.
