This page lists the terms and conditions of the services offered by our organization. Participants expressly accept the contents at the time of booking.


Our organization is made up of qualified volcanological guides registered with the professional association according to the laws of the Italian state and the Sicily region. By paying the required fees we undertake to carry out our work to the best of our ability and with the skills we possess. However, the objective may sometimes not be achieved for numerous reasons and the organization cannot in any case be held responsible or obtain a refund.


Our guides are covered by personal professional insurance (Professional Civil Liability. The policy is a protection for participants in the event of accidents caused, or that direct responsibility can be determined by the team of our organization.
Therefore, the following are EXCLUDED from coverage:
a) any accidents or damages that occurred to the participants in the normal course of the excursion (e.g. an accident following a fall on rough volcanic terrain);
b) the services and activities carried out by third parties and not directly by the staff of our association, even if booked through this website (rental equipment; accidents occurring on the means of transport in which a ticket such as the cable car is required;)
c) damages caused by the associates for actions different from this regulation and for the failure to respect the indications of the guides.


Our activities take place exclusively on reservation. To take advantage of the promotional quotas and offers advertised on the site, advance payment is required through the site’s online booking. After payment you will receive a first email summarizing the tickets purchased. This is not yet a confirmation of availability of the chosen tour.

Our secretariat will take charge of your reservation and the actual availability for the chosen day will be verified. You will receive a confirmation email or a proposal for a change and rescheduling.


In each tour, the services included and excluded in the membership fee are clearly indicated. The participant must read this section.


Participants in the activities must comply with the rules laid down in this regulation and any indication provided by their respective companions during the excursions, therefore never leave the group without express authorization.

The user is required to take note of these indications and inform all the members of his party. Those who have particular needs or pathologies of any nature are required to notify the guide before the start of the tour. Our excursions take place in a high mountain environment, even above 3000 metres. Participation is prohibited for people who are not in good physical shape or suffering from cardiac or respiratory diseases or with reduced mobility. The association will not be held responsible for any damage resulting from failure to observe these elementary common sense rules.


The proposed recreational activities take place in natural, mainly mountainous environments, where the risks of accidents cannot be completely eliminated.
Some examples: irregularities on the ground; contact with wildlife or stinging or toxic vegetation; detachment of rocks; volcanic explosions and eruptions; fall of lava ash and pyroclastic material; soil instability in epigean and hypogean environments; Any other danger or risk not dependent on the organization.
The safe mountain does not exist!
The risks can only be mitigated by responsible behavior, therefore by the experience, competence, prudence of the companions. Our organization relies exclusively on highly trained and qualified personnel.

In this case you will be entitled to a refund of the tour as long as the tour is not already started and carried out for at least 1/3.

Cancellation due to subjective assessments of the weather by the participants (e.g. summer storms…) does not give the right to a refund. If the payment of the fees was made via bank transfer, bank charges (€3) will be deducted from the refund.
