Super, kann ich empfehlen! Die Guides nehmen auf unterschiedliche Level Rücksicht :) Man geht jedoch nicht bis zum Gipfel - die Distanz reicht aber auch schon. Die Wanderschuhe, die man vor Ort von den Guides angeboten bekommt, würde ich auf alle Fälle anziehen, da sonst die eigenen Schuhe total dreckig bzw. voll mit Lava sind (und man sie lt. den Guides am gleichen Tag noch putzen müsste.) Also sind nicht mal Wanderschuhe notwendig :)

We had an amazing experience with Antonio and Renato during the Etna tour! They did a great job with showing us the hidden paths away from mass tourism. They were also able to explain a lot about the breathtaking landscape around Etna and took great care of everyone in the group. Absolutely recommended for everyone interested in a unique Etna experience!

Great tour! The guide Antonio was really nice, shared a lot of helpful Information and made us feel super safe. I would only recommend taking a headband or hat, because it is really windy at times and the sun was intense too.

We went on the hike with Sergio and Antonio and definitely recommend it. They explained everything very nice and clearly. We chatted a lot and had fun the entire time. The view from Mount Etna is incredible. The hike is not that difficulty. Must do activity when you are in Catania.

We had a fabulous time with Antonio. He really knew a lot of interesting facts and we learned about etna as well as the nature around. We absolutely loved that we were hiking in a small group of just 8 people with only few tourists around. So we really enjoyed our time and would defenitely recommend doing this tour. Before the start we had the option to have a small breakfast and to buy lunch at a local bistro which was delicious. All in all it was a unique experience. Mille grazie Antonio, Nadja and Kathrin from Germany.

Absolutely wonderful experience! You will climb the mountain and learn about the rocks and plants in Mount Etna. It just felt like an incredible geography lesson on the go. And it’s a small group tour so everyone will be good take care of. Our guide Sergio was amazing, he was not just made the trip so informative but also super fun! And they’ll provide the equipments if you are not well-prepared! For real, this’s the highlight of my trip. You will be regrets if you miss this tour, It’s totally worth the price!
