Climb Mt Etna
Locally known as ‘Mongibello’, Mount Etna towers above the Ionian Coast of Sicily. It’s the most active volcano in Europe, with near-continuous low-level eruption, and is ripe for exploration. The 3,357m peak can be hiked in a variety of ways, from half-day trips which utilize a cable car to get at least one way, or multi-day camping adventures, all departing from the Rifugio Sapienza visitor center on the volcano’s southern flank. Make sure to bring good quality footwear for the trails, and an extra jacket as you’ll be above the clouds for much of the hike.
