    Join me on this fantastic 6-day hike along the Sicilian volcanoes with their impressive smokes close to the seashore.

    Volcanoes are some of the greatest wonders of nature and Sicilian ones are not the exception. During this hiking expedition we will visit three of them: Etna, Vulcano and Scromboli. They’re three key mountains that you cannot miss if you come on vacation to Sicily.

    As for the itinerary, we will meet up at the Catania airport. We will first hike on Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. On day 3 a transfer will take us to the Eolian Islands for our following goals: Vulcano and Scromboli. During the nights, we’ll sleep in a B&B accommodation. You can take the nights off to visit the city and have some free time.

    My last recommendation is to bring hiking clothes, trekking shoes, raining jacket and gaiters. And remember that it’s important to have a good physical condition and some previous experience. This program is open to anyone who want to join a group on some fixed dates during the months of May and October.

    So, if you are looking for a great adventure in the Sicilian volcanoes don’t miss the chance. Contact me now by clicking on the green button and send your request now!

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide and Ski Intructor from Italy

    I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

    My big passion besides travelling are mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

    I was member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

    I became Mountain guide UIAGM. I guide in Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area and Sardinia.

     
     
     


     

     

    What People are Saying about Marika Fave

     

    Wonderful experience for my daughters and me. We climbed in the Cinque 5 and had a beautiful and exhilarating experience

    We had a great day out with Marika and were spoilt with amazing views and a great climb up Monte Averau. We hiked up to the via ferrata from Cinque Torri instead of getting the chairlift and were treated with incredible views of cloud inversions on the mountains. The via ferrata itself is quite short, so great for beginners (more time hiking than on the via ferrata) but the views from the top were sensational!

    Marika is an amazing guide and a really nice person! we had a great time. She was not pushy but helped us to overcome our inner barriers and complete more that we expected. as a trainer Marika is absolutely professional and very passionate and open to share her knowledge, experience and love to the climbing. I really hope we will come back to works with her soon, since it was unforgettable

    My wife and I had an incredible experience on our via ferrata trek. Marica was so helpful when it came to directions, choosing the right trail and even provided a rain jacket for my wife as she did not have one. Marica was very safety conscious and we had complete trust in her abilities and knowledge of the area. Thank you
