The fortune of coming everyday to share this mountain,
the magic I see on people putting their feet here for the fist time. It is my fuel, my mission and I wouldn’t change it I cannot see a different life. Breathing this air, showing them how to feel it, brings me joy and fulfilment giving back this luck with passion and respect. I have the mission to take them to a different dimension, my aim is to unplug their souls from their rushing life, a break from subliminal brain contamination to be able to share and learning my way to breathe it adapting my body to changes. Being myself here and now

Ernesto was an amazing guide during our whole adventure. We met with him very near from where we were staying and we met the group there. He first took us to buy something for lunch and then we headed up to where we would start the trekking. The views were amazing going up the mountain by car and Ernesto explained what we were seeing all the way. When we got there, he equipped us with everything that was necessary for the trekking (shoes, gloves, sunglasses, trekking poles, and any other piece of equipment you would think of) and for the weather as well. After that, we started walking until we found a nice spot to have lunch in the mountain, and the whole group sat there and we chatted as we enjoyed our food. We were a bit unlucky because a bit of strong wind started blowing but Ernesto made us feel completely safe and helped us were we might’ve had trouble going by ourselves. Definitely one of the best experiences we had in our trip and would definitely recommend it.

Let me start with the expectation for this experience to address a few reviews that are not satisfied. This is a hiking trip. It is around 4 mile loop and 400 feet elevation gain. This places right between easy and moderate levels of difficulty for hiking (scored 8 out of 28). Also, the format is a hiking tour, not a historic tour. I don’t think it is expected for the guide to talk all the time to entertain us. The entertainment is the hiking. So, we should think of him as a hike leader with the knowledge of mountain trails, not a historic tour guide. If this is not what you expect, then you might want to move along to other options. If you enjoy this level of hiking, then you will be faced with a magnificent view of Mt. Etna as seen in the main photo of this experience, and other great panoramic views not shown on the photos. For us, we came from another town in the morning. Ernesto arranged to pick us up at Catania train station with his minivan. There was already 3 other people in the group. It was in late December so I guess 6 people was a typical group size during the off season. He drove us to a village closer to the mountain about 20 minutes from Catania. We had coffee and bought to-go launch from there. Then he drove us up the mountain to a trailhead not too far from the mountain base (I think that’s already around 2,000m elevation). He equipped us with hiking shoes, leg/shoe protectors, jackets, gloves and ski poles. Then we start hiking with Ernesto leading us and there was an assistance with our group too. It was in winter so the whole trail was on snow/ice but it wasn’t too difficult. Just needed a good balance and being careful where to walk. This was really a plus for Ernesto because we saw another group with another guide, and they were not equipped with anything. It looked unsafe for that group hiking on snow slope like that. Ernesto chose a safe path for us to hike. I think he also assessed the ability of all of us in the group. After hiking up to the viewpoint, we had a lunch break there. It was a magnificent view. Then we hiked back down on another trail with great landscapes. The mixture of snow, lava soil/pebbles, plants and stream coming off the ground on slanted grounds was quite interesting. After hiking, he brought us to a small extinct volcanic crater for 30 minutes for us to walk around and in it. There, we also had a break in a restaurant next to the crater. Ernesto gave us good explanations through out the hiking trip. At the end, he drove us back to Catania to send us off. Knowing that we came from another town and we had to work around the train schedule, he suggested us to take a bus instead. He brought us to the right bus stop and waited there to make sure we boarded the right bus. Excellent service! Thank you, Ernesto.

I can certainly say that it was the most interesting part of my short trip to Sicily. if you plan to see Etna be sure to do it with Ernesto. It will be an amazing adventure. Everything is organized in such a way that you don't have to worry about anything. Ernesto is a great punctual person who will tell you about the volcano curiosities during the trip, drink a delicious coffee with you and at the very top will be as delighted with the views as you are for the first time. I recommend it with all my heart. I would love to repeat it the next time I stay in Catania.

If you are thinking about Etna trip, Ernesto is an excellent choice. The trip with him was full of insights but still in pretty friendly and relaxed atmosphere so you definitely won't feel as on an average guided tour. He was extremely friendly, equipped us with everything needed and showed the beauty of the mount Etna. The best experience I have get while staying in Catania!

Die Tour war atemberaubend schön. Wir wurden direkt von unserer Unterkunft abgeholt und sind zusammen zum Ätna gefahren. Zudem wurden wir voll ausgestattet mit Wanderausrüstung, wodurch wir ohne Probleme durch den Schnee stapfen konnten. Wir haben die Tour zu viert gemacht und waren alle sehr begeistert von der Landschaft und dem spaßigen Erlebnis. Wir müssen das im Sommer unbedingt wiederholen.

Grazie Ernesto e Margherita è stata un'escursione divertentissima e molto interessante! nonostante le numerose escursioni, Ernesto visita l'Etna con la passione della prima volta e il che è contagioso! :) l'escursione è stata molto spontanea e perfettamente organizzata, tutta l'attrezzatura necessaria era a disposizione, siamo stati passati a prendere e ri accompagnati sotto casa, il tutto condito da risate ed un gruppo di nazionalità miste in cui si parlava italiano e inglese, che dire di più...raccomandatissimo!
