Many Sicilian companies offer trips all over the Island while our work is focused on Mt. Etna. This enabled us to specialize in designing tailored and exclusive Etna tours. We will provide you with access to special places and expert guides which are unavailable to other travelers.
We offer first hand, unbiased advice.
Everyday all of our guides are on Mt. Etna to stay on top of path knowledge, so you will always be with someone who has already been where you are going and knows the area like the palm of their hand!

Many people expect private and independent tours to be very expensive, but our Clients are delighted to discover that they do not have to join a big group of strangers in order to afford a great customized visit to discover the volcano.
Begin by discussing trip ideas with one of our tour consultants and then decide if you prefer booking a pre-designed program "as is". Or alternatively, CUSTOMIZE A TRIP, taking advantage of our expertise, perhaps by modifying a selected itinerary or designing your own specific program.
Independent travel has never been easier!
Starting 2015, we have decided to make a further step in favor of our environment by joining a project to undertake a process of calculation, reduction and offset of CO2 emissions generated by our activities, thanks to Greenamity.org
Our emissions are offset by planting trees. This means that for every ton of CO2 that Etna Finder releases into the atmosphere (e.g. from fuel burning), an equivalent amount of CO2 will be absorbed by a newly planted tree through photosynthesis.
Our purpose is to make a difference! We are involved on Etna, giving back to conservation projects. At the community level we assist student education showing them the beauty, explaining dangers and most of all teaching how to respect the volcano and the environment to prepare our children for the future they will inherit. We therefore joined the project “Storie sotto il volcano” with local schools (http://www.storiesottoilvulcano.it/).
Our travel planning reputation is based on matching your style of travel to a quality experience itinerary with outstanding guiding. The best endorsement we have for our tours is the feedback we get from our satisfied clients. Around the world our reputation has been established by word of mouth and that’s the greatest compliment that we could ask for! Due to our consistently high quality of service and product, various international travel organizations have appointed us as their preferred suppliers.
There is nothing hidden about our prices; what you see is what you get. When you compare our prices all included, Etna Finder is always the best value for your money.
The success of any tour heavily depends on the tour guides. It is with this in mind that we recruit and train our guides.
ALL our guides who will drive you are road tested. Their performance is scored and follow up training is provided to increase their driving skills.
ALL our guides have valid first aid certificates.
Each guide is personally briefed by Guglielmo or Lorenzo - which are guides themselves - founders and owners of Etna Finder.
