You’ll definitely have an evening to remember with this excursion, first witnessing a spectacular sunset from Mount Etna, and then enjoying a traditional Sicilian meal (with wine, of course).
A minibus will pick you up from your resort mid-afternoon and drive you through lush countryside and on to the slopes of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano. When the landscape gives way to lava, you’ll swap your minibus for off-road vehicles to climb up towards the summit. The final bit of the way up to 2,900 metres will be on foot, taking around half an hour. Once you reach the top, you’ll have panoramic views over the island – and you’ll arrive just in time for a beautiful sunset.
Once the sun has set, you’ll head back down to a cosy mountain chalet, where you can tuck in to a delicious Sicilian dinner, washed down with a glass of wine. The perfect end to your evening on Mount Etna.
We say: “This is one of my favourite experiences in Sicily. Make sure you bring a jacket with you, as it gets cold at the top of Etna – and don’t forget your camera!” Laura Mason, Product Manager
