6 days hiking in the Sicilian Volcanoes 2
6 days hiking in the Sicilian Volcanoes 1

Come and hike in the Sicilian Volcanoes while discovering a true show of nature along with Marika, an IFMGA certified mountain guide in a 6- day journey.

6 Days

May, Oct




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

Mountain Guide

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.

What people are saying about Marika



Excellent morning on the via ferrata, Marika was very good guide and had a great knowledge of the area , would recommend this trip to anyone!



Marika made those 3 days the best! She understood exactly what we wanted as beginners in back country skiers but still pushed us. The Dolomites are truly a World Wonder. Skiing in those settings far from the crows with the safety of a trained mountain guide… what else?


I couldn't recommend a climbing guide more highly. Marika is energic, friendly and gave us just what we were looking for, moderate multi-pitch climbing in beautiful settings in the Dolomites, followed each day by the best restaurants and bars. She knows everything about climbing, the routes and as a local, the history of the region. She was also meticulous with safety and kept us in line where needed. Marika met all of our expectations and more. You won't be disappointed when you climb with her.



Our family with kids ages 5, 9 and 12 had a wonderful day with Marika at a via ferrata! She was amazing at catering to the needs of our 3 very different children including one who was feeling anxious. Our 5 year old was completely enamored with Marika & wanted to stay in Italy with her! In addition to being a lovely person I felt safe the entire time and she was appropriately cautious as you would want anyone to be with your children. Highly highly recommended!!



Marika was amazing! She was very knowledgeable of the history of the Dolomites and the terrains. She made us feel very safe and comfortable- would highly recommend another tour with her! Excellent guide and highlight of our Italy trip!
