A 4wd Etna excursion is an easy exclusive half day tour to explore the volcano by an exciting ride by off-road vehicle. If you want see as much as possible despite of so short time it's the best option we can offer you.Tours will start from your accomodation or from a pick up place.

Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides will show the Etna landscapes and wildness, endemic flora and geological features explaining the surrounding fragile environment. Having care of it, we'll take you following off-road itineraries through Etna's lava fields always driving on tracks,  exploring caves, and walking to reach  the "Valle del Bove" Caldera's rim, immense theatre of some major last eruptions.

After the visit of the caldera, during our 4wd Etna excursion we'll drive you up to about 2000 meters, where we will see the effects of the 2002 eruption against the touristic facilities of Piano Provenzana walking across the lava flow to the destroied hotels. On the way back  it will be possible to have a short and easy trekking (1h long roundtrip walk) to the 1865 eruptive fissure.
