An exclusive Jeep tour on Mt. Etna brings together adventure and exclusivity. During this private tour: you will not be required to share the jeep with other tourists and your driver will ensure that the trip is tailored to your personal interests. You will also have the chance to go trekking along one of the natural paths of the volcano.

At booking, you will be able to choose between a tour lasting a half-day or a full-day.

Half-Day
This adventure begins with a pick-up by Jeep from your lodgings in Catania or an neighboring community. You will pass through the small towns and villages that dot the landscape surrounding the highest volcano in Europe, and you'll visit the extinct craters at an altitude of 1900mt. From here you will continue to an ancient lava hole, and then to the Bove Valley, the vast basin found on the Eastern side of Mt. Etna. You will then visit a lava cave, once used as a sacred space and burial grounds. Next you will visit the lava flow of 1991-1993, caused by one of the longest eruptions in recent history. This will be followed by a visit to a local business to taste their honey and local products.

You may choose to partake in this excursion in the morning or at sunset!
