A Wish Sicily adventure on Mount Etna is just one of the excit ing ideas featured in AOL Travel’s round-up of once-in-lifetime family holidays. Our new adventure activity programme includes a variety of fun ways for families to explore Europe’s highest and most active volcano. Depending on the age of your children, you can choose from half and full day off-road Jeep tours, mountain bike excursions and quad bike tours or a selection of hikes and guided walks which really allow you to appreciate the extraordinary nature of the volcano.
All our villas on the slopes of Mount Etna have private pools and several of them have space for up to 18 people so are ideal for large families or groups of friends who want to holiday together. Aside from adventure on Mount Etna, this region of Sicily offers plenty of other things for families to do. Try some of the adventure water sports on offer at the Alcantara Gorge, explore the baroque towns of Catania and Acireale or head for the sophisticated town of Taormina for some serious retail therapy.
