Trekking to the lava flow





Min Age


Enjoy the Lava Experience

Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and its eruptions are often visible from more or less close positions. The Etna Guides, after a careful assessment of the volcanic risk, accompany hikers to visit the lava fields to live an unforgettable, highly adrenaline-filled experience. Given the variability of factors for carrying out this excursion, first of all the presence of an active eruption and therefore the place where the lava field develops, we therefore propose from time to time the best hiking activity to offer a fun experience and with more appropriate risk mitigation. If these conditions do not exist, even in the presence of spectacular activities, we may reserve the right not to organize guided tours.

IMPORTANT NOTES: The excursion may undergo variations depending on weather conditions or civil protection provisions at the sole discretion of the organization and/or guide. Due to the high altitude and the physical effort required, this excursion is absolutely NOT permitted for people with heart conditions or any other physical condition unsuitable for hiking. For people over 50, a preventive cardiological examination is recommended.

The excursion to visit the lava front varies based on the type of eruption. The activity will be offered exclusively in case of low risk conditions. For this reason, a standard itinerary is not presented, but the best itinerary for each event will be proposed.
