Climb to the summit of Mount Etna with your priority access roundtrip cable car ticket. Tour the volcano at an altitude of 9,500 feet aboard a unique 4x4 bus and walk around with a volcano guide.


  • Witness a panoramic view of the volcano and Ionian Coast in a single look
  • Make your way up Mount Etna to over 8,200 feet (2,500 m) on a cable car
  • Take on volcanic terrain while riding a 4x4 bus and reach even higher heights
  • Follow your guide at the bottom of the Central Crater and learn about the area
  • Non-stop departures, ticket valid all day long during the opening hours.


Ride the cable car up Mount Etna and enjoy a tour at the bottom of the summit craters. Explore the area in a 4x4 bus designed to manage the terrain. Step out of the bus to learn about the volcano on a short walking tour with your guide. Validate your ticket at the 'Priority pass' ticket office which is located at the entrance of the 'Funivia dell'Etna' station. Your adventure begins at an altitude of approximately 6,300 feet (1.900 m) at the “Funivia dell’Etna” departure station. Reach the upper station at approximately 8,200 feet above sea level (2.500 m). In case of strong wind, your ascent will be carried out by the 4x4 buses. Once reaching the upper station, board a special 4x4 bus to reach the maximum summit height area allowed (approximately 9,500 feet/2.900 m). Continue your experience with an alpine-volcano guide to check out the surrounding area. Together with your guide appreciate the enchanted scenery at the bottom of the Central Crater that, with conditions of full visibility, allows you to get lost in the view of a large part of eastern Sicily. In case of snow, your ascent will be carried out with special tracked vehicles (snowcat). After spending about 30 minutes exploring, return to the cable car station and make your way back down the volcano with your roundtrip ticket.
