Sicily Trekking Holiday

Travel with us to Sicily as we hike through forests and across lava flows on the spectacular north face of Mount Etna (3300m) - Europe's largest volcano. Taking a ferry to the picturesque Aeolian Islands, we trek to the summit of the 'Gran Cratere' of Vulcano Island. On Stromboli, one of the world's most active volcanoes, we admire the glow of incandescent lava at night and hope to see a natural firework display.

Tour Highlights

  • Vulcano Island - Ascent to the rim of Gran Cratere for views of the Aeolian Islands
  • Strómboli Island - Chance to see volcanic activity by both day and night
  • Mount Etna - Traverse along volcanic ash, lava flows and caves on Europe's highest active volcano
  • Lipari Island - Picturesque harbour town
