Description

Venture to the top of Mount Etna—Sicily’s landscape-defining active volcano—to take in sweeping panoramas over the countryside as the sun sets. Travel to the surreal charred terrain at the summit by jeep, and then tuck into authentic regional fare at a trattoria in the foothills.

Depart Taormina in the afternoon and travel via comfortable coach inland toward the slopes of Mount Etna, the snow-capped peak that dominates Sicily's scenery. This powerful volcano has captivated Sicilians’ imaginations for centuries, and the ancient Greeks believed that its fiery summit housed the workshop of Vulcan, the god of fire.

Drive past craggy lava fields and the lush vineyards that thrive in the mineral-rich volcanic soil on your way up, and hop out of the bus when you reach 5,900 feet (1,800 m). Here, soar over the barren lunar landscape of lava flows and cinder below. An alpine guide greets you at the end of the line, where you climb into a jeep to tackle the rugged environment on the way to the top, a sky-high 9,843 feet (3,000 m) above sea level.

Explore this otherworldly setting with its black sand and gravel, scoping out craters and other geological features with your guide. Settle in as the sun begins to set, painting the valleys and stunning coastline below you in glowing hues of tangerine and violet. Dinner included ( drinks not included) . Return in Taormina around midnight.
