Description

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.

About the guide

guide profile img

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 traveling is mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

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

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