What to Expect

See breathtaking landscapes as you visit the bowels of Mount Etna, and learn about its evolution from inside lava caves. Enjoy a relaxing walk through the unique volcanic landscape, where you will walk past old lava flows and ancient forests to peer into some of the 300 inactive craters.
