I had the pleasure to trek with "Etna Touring" this October, and I can only recommend them further! When we first got to the meeting point, I regretted not listening to my mom and thus not bringing along enough warm clothes. Because, let's not forget,...More

Dear Customers, a dutiful clarification: on Saturday 4th November 2017, the groups were composed of 33 participants and there were 2 volcanological guides + 2 closing escorts, so we have to disprove your negative note! Thank you, however, for taking the time to write us...More

This was my second visit to Etna, and upon the recommendation of my B&B host decided to hike to the summit with Etna Touring. She had been under the impression that the group size would be limited, which unfortunately it wasn't. Upon arrival to the...More

Dear Customers, for correctness and transparency we must write some necessary clarifications: 1. That day, like all other days, our groups have always been composed, as per regulation, by 20 people for each guide and we have always had the closing guide/escort of the group....More

Relaxed, well-informed, carful guidance. Really nice people, you can feel that they love and respect the Etna. Suitable for hikers with a at least some mountain experience. You’ll be on the top of Etna and you shouldn’t be afraid of some sulfur gases. Great tour,...More

The Etna Touring guide (Lucca) was very knowledgeable and brought the Etna story to life during this walk to the crater. The walk was strenuous but well paced with plenty of short stops for information and a chance look at the views. Whilst it involves...More

This is just to say thankyou to Etna Touring and guide Pietro La Rosa for taking me up to the summit area twice during the week 3/7 to 10/7/2017! It's astonishing how lava retains heat - when we stopped for lunch on the 5th near...More

A truly exhilarating experience on one of the planet's most surreal landscapes! Our guide Massimo was very patient with us out-of-shape Americans despite our slowing down our group of experienced European hikers (it's a tough hike, but not unmanageable if you're in average shape). His...More
