EtnaGrantour is dedicated to those who want to experience the most complete visit possible with only one day available. Generally excursions on Etna are offered in half a day with the visit of a single slope. Etna Grantour allows you to get to know 3 slopes of Etna Park starting from the Etna villages up to an altitude of about 2000 meters. Il Mattino we will dedicate to Trekking (about 2/3 hours) on the trails of the Etna park. After the "fatigues" of the walk, you will therefore have earned a refreshment stop based on local specialties. In the afternoon we will continue aboard the off-road vehicles for a 4x4 safari on off-road routes.
You will also see:
- The barren lava fields of ancient and recent castings
- The pioneer and endemic vegetation of the lavas
- Tourist locations destroyed by eruptions
- The side craters extinguished with a button panel
- The majestic caldera of the Valle del Bove
- A volcanic cave of lava flow (lava tube)

Etna, besides being one of the most active volcanoes in the world, is certainly also among the most fascinating. It is inevitable to be the subject of numerous stories and curiosities. Its geographical position in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, with the sea at a very short distance, creates ideal conditions to develop an incredible diversity of landscapes. Whoever imagines the volcano as a desolate moor made up only of bare and raw volcanic rock, is wrong. The Etna territory extends from sea level up to 3329 m, an absolutely variable altitude based on eruptive activities! This great altitudinal difference in a relatively small space has created a unique ecosystem, within which man for millennia, has learned to coexist in quite particular conditions, defining it from always with multiple names including in the local meaning prevails A ' Muntagna. Etna is therefore often called an island on the island and through our tours you will have the opportunity to discover all its beauty. On June 21st 2013 the Etna volcano was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
