A helicopter trip in Sicily over Etna and to the Aeolian Islands is a highly emotional experience. We have seen grown men (and women) reduced to tears by the beauty and power of Etna's fiery craters seen from above. Take a look at the trip options below and for detailed information and booking please call your personal Pre-departure Coordinator on +44 (0) 203 603 4478 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, why not try one of our 4x4 Etna experiences with an expert volcanologist?

Terms and Conditions
Think Experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned not controlled by The Thinking Traveller and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of every Think Experience up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons including where it considers that there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (i.e. helicopter rides, excursions on Mount Etna, boat charter, etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in contact directly with the local provider before deciding to buy. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.
In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you, but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
