Description

Mount Etna is situated between the provinces of Mesina and Catania, on the east coast of Sicily. Although its altitude has been varying due to its several eruptions, the mountain is around 3,322 meters above sea level and it is the highest active stratovolcano in Europe.

Apart from being a marvelous mountain to contemplate, it is a great place to enjoy different snow activities during the winter. I invite you to join me on this 3-day splitboarding trip in this incredible volcano.

We’ll start our trip in Catania and enjoy an acclimatization day near Mount Etna. On day 2, we’ll reach the summit of the volcano and explore its stunning crater. Then, we’ll snowboard down from the top of the mountain. On the last day, we’ll enjoy more splitboarding on a different peak from the area. In addition, you will have the pleasure to taste the typical Italian food during your stay.

To join this trip, it is a requirement to have some prior splitboarding or skiing experience. You should also have a good fitness level.

So, Mount Etna is waiting for you. Send your request and make your reservation now. It will be a pleasure to guide you there!

Another great places to enjoy splitboarding are in the Alps. Take a look at these trips in Gran Paradiso and Mount Adamello.

Mountain Guide

I am a young Italian UIAGM - UVGAM guide and I live the mountain in all its aspects.

I love being in the mountains during every period of the year and I think each season is special and give us the possibility to discover a different side of the mountain: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski touring and ice/mixed routes in spring, rock climbing and trekking/alpinism in summer and autumn. Each experience lived in the mountain is unique and for me it is a real pleasure to help and assist people living something that sometimes is almost like a dream.

I speak fluently Italian, English, French and Spanish.

I live in Valtournenche, in the Matterhorn valley, and work with a well consolidated group of UIAGM mountain guides, so we can provide the professional support needed even in case of big groups of people: by contacting me you will always find a solution for your trip in the mountains!
