Description

Go on a trail trip through Sicily and its volcanoes. Come and discover all the Sicilian culture from the majestic Etna to the Aeolian Islands, the most volcanic region in Europe. This trip is the most beautiful destination in my catalog and it allows the trailers, in addition to the trip, to create real links between them and the locals.

The pluses:

  • Small groups allowing personalized training
  • A guide specialized in this field and accustomed to the competitive environment 
  • Theoretical and pedagogical courses
  • A certified product (PNR, France Tourisme)
  • Friendliness and fun guaranteed
