Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Featured in the popular book, "1,000 Places To See Before You Die," Mount Etna is a natural wonder of gigantic proportions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the best ways to soak up its jaw-dropping scenery is on a full-day 4WD Jeep excursion. Hailed as Europe's largest and highest volcano, Mount Etna dominates the city at 10,902 feet above sea level. An example of Etna's severe beauty is Valle del Bove, the remains of a catastrophic eruption that rocked the mountain 8,000 years ago. Step out of the Jeep for a walk along paths corroded by the 2001 and 2002 eruptions for a look at new lava flows. Following a hearty lunch, you'll head to beautiful Alcantara Gorge, formed over centuries by the erosive activity of the Alcantara River's cold waters. At the end of the day, you'll climb back into your Jeep and return to your ship.

Special Notes:

A substantial amount of walking is involved over rough and uneven surfaces during the stops. Comfortable shoes and protection from the sun are recommended. Although the weather is hot it often gets windy on Mt Etna so a jacket or windbreaker is also advisable. This tour is subject to weather conditions.

Medical Restriction:

Not recommended for guests with back or neck pain
