What you'll do

The experience includes an easy-medium level trekking on one of the most beautiful routes of “Parco dell’ Etna”, where you will discover the colors and natural beauties of Europe's most active volcano, AWAY FROM THE CROWDED TOURIST AREAS. You will enjoy the spectacular lunar landscapes that Etna offers, between ancient and new lava flows, across pine, chestnuts and birch forests. Along the pathway, you will reach the majestic "VALLE DEL BOVE", from where it will be possible to observe the SUMMIT CRATERS and the most recent lava flows. Total roundtrip duration of this segment about 3 hours, difficulty and distance available to change by arrangement with the guide. Afterward, you will explore the depths of the volcano through one of the most interesting LAVA CAVES around Etna. You will walk through a lava tube through which lava once flowed, equipped with helmet and lamp.
