Family Volcanoes Sicily Trip - Warne/Fox Family

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The extra spent to go to the top of Etna is a must. At 3,400m you see how powerful and alive our planet is - it make you fell very humble to be there. The Etna Alpine guide was so passionate and informative about his 'island'.

What did you think of your group leader?

Frederika (FA) was the best. She was informative, engaged with the kids brilliantly - even on our rest day - and could not have done more for us. She told us in advance what to expect the next day and couldn't have been more helpful She should gain a vote as your group leader

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The islands are more hot but more humid than you think. Scarves to cover your phase in the sulphur fumaroles on Volcano and Etna are helpful -e especially for the kids. The Etna Center provides you with mountain boots,gators and fleeced waterproofs all within the extra excursion cost if you are trekking to the summit. Sturdy walking trainers or trail shoes are suitable for all other hikes

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Fantastic trip - my 10 year old has voted it his best holiday ever - 8 days seemed longer when you were there as we we were very active but could easily have stayed for longer.
