Note: While other organizations sometimes ride with as many as 20 quad bikes at a time, this organization chooses to do the tours in "small" groups. This way the quality always remains high! This often means a maximum of 6 - 8 quads per guide. The organization chooses to guide small groups so as to ensure high quality. This means limited availability.


You need to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the tour. This way the guide has time to explain you how to drive the quad, you can try the right helmet and you can go to the bathroom if needed. You can park your car opposite or next to Rifugio Ragabo. There is plenty of free parking here.

Clothing tips
Be sure to wear layered clothing and bring a good (windproof) jacket. Keep in mind that even in high season the temperature drops when driving at 1400 - 1650 meters high on a Mountain and in a forest. We therefore always recommend to bring a jacket! You can get dirty while quad biking. So do not wear white and/or new clothing.

It is also advisable to wear good closed shoes. For example, hiking boots or sports shoes with good grip, since we make several stops where we walk on solidified lava.

Also bring (sun) glasses. This way you avoid getting dust from other quads in your eyes.

Food and drinks
If you want to bring food and drinks on the tour we advice you to bring a small backpack. You can buy a bottle of water or a snack at the bar of Rifugio Ragabo where we start from. During the tour you make a stop at Piano Provenzana where you can use the bathroom and buy something to eat/ drink if you wish.

Restrictions Etna quad bike tour

This tour is not recommended/ accessible to:

  • Pregnant woman
  • Children of 0 - 5 year
  • People with back problems
  • people with cardiac problems
  • people with severe knee/walking problems
  • Animals

We drive 80% off-road. This is hugely bumpy and this is definitely not good for the fetus. Driving off-road also means a lot of dust, this is not good for young children.

Minimum age & driving license

To drive a quad bike, a minimum age of 18 years and a category B driving license are required. Children may ride on the rear as passengers. Children must be at least 6 years old. Pregnant women are not allowed to go on the quad bike tour.

Rental contract quad bike

Before starting the tour, you need to sign a rental contract to assume your responsibility. This contract will be provided by email. You can send a signed copy of this contract by email as well (don't print, let's safe trees!). Every driver of a quad bike needs to sign this contract.

FAQ quad biking

There are 3 of us and only 1 person wants/is allowed to drive a quad bike. Do you have a solution?

Yes, there is a solution to this. 1 of you can then join the guide on the back. This person pays only half the price of the quad tour. So € 50,00 in this case.

I have a small dog, can I bring him/here?

No sorry, this is not possible. We drive about 80% off-road. This is too bumpy for a dog and the tour takes too long for this. In addition, there is often a lot of windblown dust, which is not nice for the dog too. We also have no possibility to leave the dog somewhere, while you are on the tour.

My child is 5, can't he/ she really come?

The organization recommends a minimum age of 6. This is because the tour is much off-road and there may be a lot of dust. As a parent/guardian, you are responsible. If you feel that your son/daughter is strong enough to hold on for 2 hours (there are breaks) and can handle the tour, then he/she may join us. Please note that we cannot return earlier in between because there will be other participants and there is no refund if you decide to stop earlier.

Can we have a private quad bike tour?

Yes, a private tour is possible. However, there are additional charges for this. Please indicate in your booking request if you are interested in this.

Is there a pick-up service to get to the starting point?

No, the organization unfortunately does not offer a pick-up service. Additionally, there is no public transportation to the starting point. The only option is to get here yourself by car.

The road to Rifugio Ragabo is a good paved road, where for example the Giro d'Italia also passed.

If you don't have your own car, you can ask for a cab or transfer service. Note that renting a car yourself is often much cheaper!

What happens with bad weather?

With a very little rain, the quad tour can go on as usual. Just make sure to bring your own proper clothing. With a prediction of very bad weather (rain and/or thunderstorms), the organization may decide to cancel the tour. In that case, we can look for a new date.
