All our Etna excursions can be organized in private formula, ie the jeep and the guide are only at your disposal.. This option is particularly indicated for those who want more privacy or because their needs require such as the presence of newborns, people with motor disabilities, or pets or simply to have a convenient time. In this mode you can request the customization of the tours and the flexibility of time, provided that the variation does not go beyond the timing required for the specific activity required or involves the employment of two shifts.
The exclusive formula, being engaged a vehicle and a guide regardless of the number of participants, provides a quote 'empty for full' taking into account the full shares. Discounts are not applicable and children pay full adult fees in this case. For example, a couple wishing to take a half-day excursion will have to calculate the entire membership fee for 8 participants (this is the number of seats in the vehicle at our disposal). The fee does not include any services offered by third parties (tastings in the cellar, lunches, cable car tickets, etc.). If you intend to book the tour in private formula, you will be asked to pay in advance the entire membership fee.
The Private Etna 3000 jeep tour allows you to reach about 3000m above sea level at the base of the Summit Craters of Etna. This excursion also includes the use of the services offered by the Etna Cableway (South Etna) or Etna Mobility (North Etna), not included in the price. On board our 4x4 jeeps we will arrive at the Rifugio Sapienza (Etna Sud, 2000m asl) and from here we will continue by cable car + Unimog (special 4X4 vehicles with 28 seats) up to the highest altitude accessible between 2700 and 2900 a.s.l. (depends on volcanic activity) or at Piano Provenzana (North Etna, 1800m asl) and with special 4x4 vehicles we will reach an altitude of 2850m asl. In both cases you will always be accompanied by our guides and with the help of mountain-volcanological guides we will visit the area at the base of the Summit Craters. Here the landscape is absolutely lunar, a desert of lava, lapilli and ashes (often with a few hours of life) with the majestic and active Southeast Crater in the background. Back down aboard our 4x4 jeeps we will proceed in the direction of one of the most famous lava flow caves of Etna which you will visit equipped with helmets and torches. Last stop is the wonderful viewpoint of the Valle del Bove.
