Walking on Etna, Italy

unbelievable

Trecking on the volcanoes was amazing. Words can't justify the splendour of Mt Etna summit. The smells, views and sound. Especialy with knowing trecking on Mt Etna was suspended just prior to departure.

Sicilian volcanoes

A great group, guide, weather and location. An excellent itinerary with a mixture of contrasting activities and locations, from hiking and swimming on the peaceful Aeolian islands, to climbing the moonscape of Etna, whilst there is still free time to do other things.

Sicilian Volcanoes

Could have been an excellent trip but without the volcano hikes its a quite easy walking holiday rather than the experience we were looking forward to. Stromboli crater walk is currently closed and the boat trip is OK but not a replacement for the fireworks. Unfortunately bad weather meant the walk to the top of Etna was also unavailable. The remaining walks are enjoyable but relatively short and untaxing (IMO)

Exodus Response

We were very sorry to learn that due to adverse weather conditions Simon was unable to do the Stromboli crater walk and the walk to the top of Mt Etna. Whilst both of these walks are optional, we appreciate that this must have been disappointing. Stromboli and Etna are amongst the most active volcanos in the world, and since their activity can change at the last moment it is very hard to predict whether or not the walks will be open. We are aware that both volcanoes have been very active this summer, so the walks have been unavailable more often than usual. As a result, therefore, we have updated the trip notes for 2015 to explain that the summits may sometimes be closed and the optional treks not available. Marta Marinelli - Trip Manager

Sicilian Volcanoes

Very good trip...great location, impressive volcanoes, good group, friendly and helpful guide, amazing photos. Only complaint was not having enough time on Stomboli to fit in. trek and a boat trip (there are lava flows to the sea at the moment so the night time boat trip is a must). Would have rather had one less day on Lipari and one extra day on Stromboli

Volcanoes, food & wine!

A brilliant week of volcano hiking, excellent Sicilian food and local wine, with a super group of people. An excellent itinerary, well thought out, covering a lot of ground, but never feeling rushed.

Sicily , the Aeolian Islands and Volcanos

An absolutely beautiful and rewarding trip around the Aeolian Islands in the company of some fun people. The week was very well organised by Exodus with a good balance of walking, cultural activities, eating, drinking delicious and great value local wine and then sleeping off the day's efforts in pretty good comfort.

Sicilian volcanoes

An excellently devised and run holiday week. Our guide was special and all the logistics were in place. Stromboli by night was awe-inspiring, and Etna in its colossal size as well.

Sicilian Volcanoes

A great trip exploring the beautiful Aeolian islands on foot. A good mix of structured activities and freetime with lots of sicilian food, wine and culture and amazing volcanic activity.

SICILIAN VOLCANOES

Really enjoyed this trip, lots of variety from chaotic Catania to the tranquility and clear blue seas of the volcanic islands and the mars scape at the top of Etna. Walking was not too hard or too easy (it pays to be a bit fit though)
