Tour description

This tour through the countryside of Mount Etna takes you on an incredible sensorial journey. Combining the wilderness of Sicily’s volcanic landscape with the transcendent scents and flavors of the island’s food and wine, this true taste of Sicily is an experience that will stay with you for life.

In the intimacy of a small group, with no more than 16 participants, you’ll spend the day in the company of our expert local guide. They’ll share their deep-rooted knowledge of their region with you, taking you far off the normal tourist trail, as they immerse you in the nature, culture, and cuisine of Etna and the surrounding area.

Driving up Mount Etna, we begin our adventure

We start by driving up Mount Etna, passing lava-stone houses and quaint hillside villages until we reach 1000 meters above the sea level. Here we'll embark on a relaxed hike on the edge of its ancient craters, soaking in breathtaking views over the countryside, where the black lava is covered with green vineyards and sun-yellow lemon plantations.

Visit a local winery for an authentic taste of Sicily

After exploring Etna’s mountainside, we’ll start indulging in the region’s cuisine. The first stop on your Sicilian food experience involves a visit to a local winery. Here you can refresh yourself over a glass of cool prosecco, sample the rich, red flavors of the island’s Nero d’Avola, or do as Etna’s residents do as indulge in the area’s freshly made Etna Rossa.

Stop at a local farmhouse where we’ll linger over lunch

Following your trip to the local winery to sample a select pairing of antipasti and wine, we’ll sit down for an open-air lunch at an Etna farmhouse. Delicious primi, secondi, and contorni consisting of pasta dishes, grilled meats and fish, and seasonal vegetables are the indulgent order of the day. Lastly, we’ll stop at a local pasticceria for some typical sweets and a glass of Etna liquor.
