Stromboli from the helicopter
Helicopter tours add a new dimension to your "volcano" experience; you can see things from the air that are invisible or look completely different from the surface. One of the features that make Etna and the other sicilian volcanoes so spectacular is the ever-changing and breathtaking vistas. Landscapes range from lush pine and birch wood to dry arid black lava deserts to snow topped mountains to  wonderful mediterranean sea. Sicily is a feast for the eyes. Full of greens, blues, and wonders that make for wonderful memories. One of the best ways to enjoy the natural wonders of Sicily and its volcanoes to the fullest is with a helicopter ride. Every island offers them and every island has something special to offer.

A helicopter trip of the mount Etna, Stromboli Island or Vulcano Island will include a bird's eye view of the craters. Every trip offers views that will stay in your heart forever. The sweeping views of Bove Valley (Huge Etna's caldera) are truly spectacular.

Be aware that helicopter company may cancel trips due to weather, so it is best to book for an early departure, so you can make or pursue alternate plans early in the day in case of a cancellation. There is no need to take the longer tours, it is overkill and the extra money is best spent on other VolcanoTrek activities. And, finally, don't forget to bring your camera. Even if you are not the picture taking type, buy a disposable and snap away. This experience will last a lifetime!
