Etna ski tour

Mount Etna ski trip – skiing on an active volcano

From: 490,00

All about the Mount Etna ski trip – skiing on an active volcano.

Overview

Skiing on the highest active volcano (3343 m) and largest (20 km radius) of Europe with an eye to the sea is an experience that will remain in your memory! The climate on Etna favors a fairly compact snow and the inclination of the slopes is excellent, ideal for medium-sized skiers.

From the cable car station at 2500m  you reach the top in about three hours, being able to see the four craters closely. The Mediterranean atmosphere, the mild climate, the aromas, the flavors of a traditional and authentic cuisine with the warm and cheerful Sicilian hospitality, will make our adventure in Sicily unique!
