An exclusive jeep tour on Etna brings together adventure and exclusivity. It is in fact a private tour: you will not share the jeep with others and you will be able to tailor your trip to your personal interests with the driver. You will also have the chance to go trekking along one of the nature paths of the volcano.
The adventure starts with a pick-up by jeep from your accommodation in the municipalities of Taormina, Letojanni or Giardini Naxos. You will head towards the small towns situated on the slopes of Mount Etna. You will pass Santa Venerina, Milo and Fornazzo, this last town built upon the lava eruption of 1689, at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level.
From here you will continue to an old lava hole, and then to the Bove valley, the vast valley on the Eastern side of Etna. You will visit a lava cave, once used as a sacred place and sepulture. You will then have a break at a typical mountain refuge, where you will be able to either eat a packed lunch, or buy some lunch at the refuge (extra).
You will go on to the Sartorius craters, inactive since 1865, where you will start a 35 minute trek along a breathtaking path. On the return journey you will follow the Mareneve road, a road with stunning panoramic views, which hugs the Eastern side of the volcano. You will pass through the towns of Linguaglossa, and Castiglione di Sicilia, named recently one of the "most beautiful villages of Italy".
Finally, return to your accommodation.
