4 to 6 days of backcountry skiing on Mount Etna in Sicily, enjoying great spring snow and awesome views on the sea. Together with a certified mountain guide.

Not specified


4 Days

Jan, Feb


Please join me for a guided 4 to 6-day ski touring traverse in Sicily, on Mount Etna, the tallest (3343m) active volcano in Europe.

I particularly enjoy guiding my friends and clients there because…

  • it offers breathtaking views on the sea;

  • the Province of Catania (Nicolosi and Linguaglossa) is a region where people are very welcoming and friendly, and the local Sicilian food awesome;

  • it suitable for different levels of skiers, more or less beginners to more experienced;

  • reaching craters with your skis is a very unique experience.

The exact itinerary will be decided a little bit before arriving in order to go to the spots where weather and snow conditions are the best.  I will be there with my van so we will maximize our flexibilty and make sure we have the best ski of the area.

It is not a very technical ski touring traverse and the daily positive altitude change varies from 700 to 1100 meters.

We will be staying in a bed and breakfast. I can guide you there between 4 to 6 days. The number of participants should not exceed 7 persons for one guide. If you are a larger group, I will ask one of my friends, IFMGA mountain guide as well to join us.

If you plan to come to Sicily and he if you wish to ski on Mount Etna, please get in touch with me and let’s discuss about a program that would match your desires. I will be very happy to guide you there and let your discover this awesome part of Italy.

About the guide

Since when I was a child I had a primary instinct and it was to go climbing or hiking the Mountains.

I'm Sicilian and I live in a small village down the volcano Etna. I'm a ski instructor and a Mountain Guide.

I want to share with you all the beauty of my island in outdoor activities and more. There are many good spots here in Sicily for you and I'm super happy to share them with you.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
