Tour description

With this full-day excursion, Dream Island will make you discover one of the most beautiful landscapes of Sicily: Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. Later you will have the opportunity to taste the precious Etna wines.
Our excursion will start in SUV or minivan (up to 8 people) with an off-road up to the 2002 lava front, through the Pineta Ragabo. Then we will proceed to the starting point of the trek and our excursion will continue on foot at an altitude of 1650 meters and it will reach an altitude of 1700 meters. We will walk for two hours along the paths of the lateral craters called Craters Sartorius on the north-east slope of Etna. Once at the top we will reach some panoramic points from which we can admire the Mediterranean Sea and the Nebrodi and Peloritani mountain ranges. Before reaching the winery, we will visit a lava cave.
Once the Etna tour is over, we will reach the Patria family estate, where an informal sommelier will guide you through a tasting of 5 Sicilian wines + 1 passito + 1 grappa, all made in the cellar. Flavors that will make you appreciate the complexity of the Etna grapes. A complete lunch of appetizer, first course, second course and dessert will be served along the tasting.
