Physical requirements:

This trip requires a good general physical condition and some hiking experience. The time spent on individual excursions range from 1 hour up to ca. 6-8 hours, including breaks, but these timings are variable as they also depend on the weather, opportunities to observe and photograph volcanic activity etc. Most hikes are fairly easy, with climbing efforts between 100-400 m and total walking times under 3 hours. Exceptions are the more strenuous climb to Stromboli's summit, where around 900 m of altitude have to be climbed, and the potential climb to Etna's summit craters which can take up to 4 hours or more of total walking (weather and volcanic activity permitting these hikes). These latter excursions can be considered as optional and can be shortened by all or part of the group (possibility to split up, see program for details). People with asthma or other breathing difficulties should contact their medical doctor and are kindly requested to also inform us about this on beforehand.

Arrival info:

The tour starts in Naples and ends in Catania. In order to give everybody the best chance to plan his/her trip as flexible as possible, travel arrangements to Naples and from Catania are not included in the tour package. Naples is easily reached by plane or train (e.g. from Rome airport or other cities) and when the tour ends in Catania one can catch a connecting flight to the international departure airport (e.g. Naples, Rome, Milan). This 2 weeks volcano adventure can be easily combined with a preceding tour or an extension program in Italy, for example city trips to Rome, Florence,... or spending more time on Sicily or one of the Eolian islands. Upon request, we will happily make you some suggestions or assist you with your (international) travels in(to) Italy.
