Mount Etna Challenge

14 - 17 September 2017

If Sicily is the most charismatic island in the Mediterranean then Etna is its iconic beating heart. On the Mount Etna Challenge, you will spend 2 days traversing the mountain - and climbing to more than 3100m as we skirt past the smokey summit. In this tough trek, we bring you to the Europe's highest active volcano - and enroute you'll get full support, great hospitiality, delicious food, and beautiful scenery with stunning views over the coastline.
