Difficulty of Ascents on Mount Etna

To understand the difficulty of the ascents on Mount Etna, you can choose the excursion or route that best suits your needs.

The physically most challenging excursions are those to the summit: see here. The final part of the volcano, from 2800 m to 3300 m, requires experienced hikers accustomed to high altitudes.

If you prefer not to walk much, you can choose excursions with transport from Etna North. The departure is from 1800 m (the maximum reachable by your car) up to 2850 m. The northern side of Mount Etna is rich in craters, and you can join easy walking excursions: open the page or 4×4 round trip excursions: open the page, which allow you to see various craters.


Not all agencies offer tours, excursions, or trekking above 1800 meters. Therefore, we recommend always asking for detailed information about the experience before booking!

We, as a legally authorized Volcanic Guides company, organize excursions in the highest areas of the volcano, even during eruptions. Before organizing visits to the lava flows, we carefully observe the ongoing volcanic phenomenon. If deemed safe, we can accompany tourists, always ensuring the presence of authorized guides.
