Your guide will pick you up at your accommodation at 9 am, and you will all drive towards the brooding, smoldering Mount Etna, which dominates the entire northeastern region of Sicily.
Your tour will start with a magnificent walk on the edge of extinct craters in order to understand the structure of the volcano and the life cycle of an eruption.
Afterwards, equipped with torches and helmets (which we will provide), you will enter a lava cave. Back on the vehicle, we head up an ancient lava flow to reach one of the most breathtaking sceneries that Mt Etna gives us, which is known as the Valle del Bove.

In the afternoon, we visit a lovely wine estate that produces high quality wines from its vineyards. The area’s volcanic soil, which is rich in minerals, its peculiar microclimate with important temperature fluctuations, and a savoir-faire that goes back generations, produce wines with a freshness and a lightness not seen anywhere else in Sicily.
Following the owner-led visit of the estate, we indulge in a wine tasting that will give you some insight into the stunning diversity of the Etna’s wine-making traditions. Most wines are based on native Sicilian grape varieties with their rich fruit and mineral flavors.
Wines are accompanied by snacks (locally produced olives, cheeses, sun dried tomatoes, locally baked bread and salami).
