We also recommended, to inform promptly your private guide about any change of your health conditions during excursions.
All excursions are not suggested to pregnant women.
No Divings one or two days Before the tour
During Divings, nitrogen quantities are left inside your cardiovascular system. This may cause embolism during excursions on Mount Etna, for this reason we HIGHLY advice you to check your “no-fly” time and to consider the same time before taking part to any of our Tours and Excursions.
It’s prohibited the use of contact lens, especially for high quote excursions and during windy weather conditions, due to ashes blown by the wind.
