From West Africa to the Andes, the world is home to a wealth of breath taking volcanic peaks which are perfect for scaling on foot.
For lovers of hiking and adventure, there are few better experiences then hiking to the summit of one of the planet’s myriad of active volcanoes, and from the ash-carpeted slopes of Sicily’s iconic Mount Etna, to the otherworldly landscapes of Indonesia’s Brogo, across every continent, there are a wealth of breath taking options to choose from.
Europe’s tallest active volcano is sandwiched between the city of Catania and the Mediterreanan sea, on Sicily’s eastern coastline, and is a truly magnificent sight to behold, with Its steep slopes bearing evidence of the lava spills from previous eruptions and its soaring ash and snow carpeted peak routinely shrouded in thick volcanic smoke.

No, it is recommended or in some cases mandatory to hire a guide, or join a group tour.
Although this may vary depending on the volcano and time of year and should therefore be checked with your guide or tour operator when booking, generally you will need to bring hiking boots or shoes, sun cream, sun glasses, a sun hat, water and snacks.
It depends on the volcano you wish to hike. As a rule of thumb they're usually a fair bit less difficult than a mountain but you'll still work up a solid sweat during the ascent.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!
Just come back from completing the 24 hour natinal 3 Peaks Challenge with Bookitlist. 25-27th June 2021. From start to finish the group I was in was well looked after. From pick up to drop off the team were well organised & made the experience/challenge as enoyable & relaxing as possible. an unforgettable experience & will definitely be looking out for what other trips they have to offer.
Whether for a personal challenge, or for charity, climbing a mountain is an achievement everybody can be proud of.
