Mount Etna: Cable Car, Jeep, & Hiking Tour to Summit

1. Mount Etna: Cable Car, Jeep, & Hiking Tour to Summit

Ascend to the summit of the craters of Mount Etna, one of the most coveted excursions a hiker can make. Hike in full safety with an authorized alpine and volcano guide, and marvel at the beauty and wonder of the highest active volcano in Europe.   Depart from Sapienza Refuge in Nicolosi, and ascend 2,504 meters by cable car. Then, ride in a 4x4 Jeep up to 2,900 meters, to begin your hike. You’ll hike 1.5 hours uphill, passing many craters and taking long pauses to take pictures and rest. Experience the incredible feeling of being on top of the world in this rocky, beautiful landscape with the giant sky above you. After reaching the summit, descend for 2 hours back to the cable car, which will take you to your departure point.

Even though we couldn't reach the summit due to increased activity of Etna and we were refunded part of the paid amount (because the part with jeeps were excluded) it was an amazing experience. Guides were funny and told us a lot of interesting information and even showed us pictures and videos of freshly erupted lava in their phones. The hike wasn't too challenging, but we were still exhausted after the day of climbing up and harsh winds. It was a great tip from other hikers in the comments below that you should take more clothes than you think you need :D I didn't take a jacket at the cabin before the hike at that was my mistake. Also, gloves would have been helpful too. The temperature at the top was 3-5 celsius.

Due to current restrictions we were allowed to do only the cable car, hike part and received a small refund. Perhaps GetYourGuide needs to reflect availability of tours, not just sell something and advice a day later (afternoon before trip) that this trip isn’t available. Experience itself was great, knowledgeable guides who were keen to share information and photos of recent eruptions, very well organised trip and highly recommended. Etna is fairly active currently so there are many restrictions to hike, guided tours are permitted to go much higher up. Hike lasted around 5 hours and was fairly strenuous at times.

Superb hike with Edouardo Amore, we could not go to the top due to the activity of the volcano but the secondary hiking route was super interesting with breathtaking views. Edouardo was a great guide, he even sent us some videos of the active volcano and lava flows after the hike. I recommend!

We were lucky enough to witness an eruption of etna during this day which made it fantastic. The route proposed by the guide was clear and accessible to all. Our guide Eduardo was really wonderful with all his explanations that accompanied the excursion

Fabulous day out. Certainly not for unfit people. Highly recommend as it’s like a visit to the moon
