What you'll do

Departure from the Rifugio Sapienza square in our mobile Info Point Ashàra. After a short breifing, our trek will start, which will lead us to 3330masl. With the cable car we will quickly gain altitude up to 2500malm and then with 4X4 bus we will get to 2900masl. During the 2 hour ascent we will perform 2-3 intermediate breaks to enjoy the view. We will follow the moon-like lava fields that will lead us under the summit craters. With a last challenging climb we will reach the summit of Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, where we could admire the summit area. We will return on foot to the summit station of the cable car in about 2 hours.
