When does my tour start?

This is a private tour and the tour time will be set to fit in with your arrival time.

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will guide you to your air-conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

The tour will commence with a drive on the outskirts of Giardini-Naxos, your guide will be pointing out all of the main landmarks for your interest before the tour will continue toward the famous Mount Etna National Park.

The journey to the National Park will take around 1 hour 15 minutes, there will be a comfort break along the way in a beautiful Sicilian town.  Here there is a local cafeteria where you will be able to use the washrooms (free of charge) or purchase a coffee or one of the many pastries on display, including the local delicacy the Canoli.

The drive will continue, making our way up to the National Park, the scenery during the drive is impressive, with lava rock formations on either side of the road as we continue through the twist and turns before reaching 3000 feet and the main coach park of this most visited area.  Your guide will be giving you information along the journey, explaining about the Etna eruptions over the years.

Mount Etna is a popular tourist area and is also extremely respected by the locals, Mount Etna otherwise known by the Sicilians as ‘Mamma Etna’ is the main water source for the island.  The area is also famous for producing excellent wines due to the volcanic soil.

Disembarking the transportation, you will be taken on a guided walk of one of the many craters the National Park has to offer.  If you do not wish to embark on the walking part of the tour, there are plenty of café/bars boasting amazing views from their open terraces, just simply relax and enjoy.

After the walking tour the guide will allow you some free time before we get back onto the transportation ready for the journey back to the port of Giardini-Naxos.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

How strenuous is this tour?  If you are embarking on the walking tour of the crater, this involves walking up inclines, uneven ground, rocky pathways.  However, if you choose not to walk the craters you are able to sit and relax in the local café/bars, so those with walking difficulties do not have to embark on the walking tour if they do not wish to do this.
