The guide is certainly useful but not mandatory except in the summit areas of the volcano. The Sicilian parks as well as the Etna park are open to everyone and can be reached by car as far as the asphalted roads lead and to the equipped ski areas.

Those who choose a naturalistic and volcanological guide want to delve into the most unexplored, beautiful and suggestive areas. An expert guide will allow you to visit places that you will not be able to explore on your own and without knowledge of the area. The guide has the task of leading you safely and transferring all the information that an independent visit cannot grasp.

Our tours are open to everyone: from families with children who want to spend half a day visiting the most beautiful and characteristic areas of the area, to trekking/hiking enthusiasts who want to delve into the paths for half or a whole day, or to those who want to reach the summit craters at the highest altitudes.

The clothing and equipment to bring depends on the tour chosen and the time of year. It is always advisable to bring a shirt or fleece and a jacket, as well as closed or trekking shoes. In the description of the various tours, the type of clothing/equipment to bring is always suggested. For some tours we provide the necessary equipment such as helmets, torches, snowshoes, etc.

The minimum number is two participants. There is no maximum number of participants, but our tours are aimed at small groups and in any case each guide always has no more than 9 participants (except for pre-formed groups for example: schools, group trips, etc.). This is for safety and quality reasons of our tours.

Tours are also organized in case of non-optimal conditions, such as fog, rain, wind. Any changes or variations to the tour will be at the discretion of the guide if conditions worsen. In the case of critical weather conditions (weather alert) or prohibitions due to volcanic activity (altitude limitations, access bans, etc.) the excursion could be canceled or modified if possible.

In the event that it is impossible for you to participate in a tour already booked previously and for which you have paid the advance, you will be refunded according to the cancellation policies sent to you at the time of booking.

The meeting place for our tours is indicated in the tour description. The meeting point and tour time vary depending on the tour chosen.

Our tours have been designed to allow anyone to visit the most beautiful and evocative places according to their requests with excursions that can include more or less demanding itineraries. These tours are proposals and do not exclude the possibility of customizing the tour according to your needs in an exclusive way with a private guide.
