What you'll do

The adventure will be unique! Starting early in the morning, we will live the day as real farmers. Enjoy the scents of nature as we explore the countryside to pick the olives of Mount Etna, a true giant that dominates and “protects” Eastern Sicily. While working and chatting all morning, we will use rakes, tarpaulins, and ladders to harvest the olives under the watchful eye of “Muntagna,” the name locals use to refer to Mount Etna. Lunch will be served to the group based on local products according to an ancient Sicilian tradition typical of the country life. At the end of the day, we will bring the crates of olives collected to the oil mill. There, each phase of the transformation of the olives into oil will be seen and then the new oil will be tasted.

Cinzia

My family has been farming for three generations. We own a piece of land on the slopes of Mount Etna that is cultivated with olives, prickly pears, and oranges ... the gold of our land! Our passion for the countryside and for olives gave my husband and I the desire to share the experience of the olive harvest on Mount Etna.
