Full description
Visit the park of Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe on this easy trekking trail. The park around Etna is, since 2013, a UNESCO world heritage site. The trekking begins from the southern part of the Volcano, that in recent years has been hit by lava flows. This is one of the most beautiful sides of the volcano because during the trekking you can admire the contrast between the dark rocks and the vegetation (such as broad-leaved woods). On the trail there are some alpine houses, which can be visited, built in lava rocks without cement, in the area located at an altitude of about 1,700 meters. You will also discover some Etna hideouts such as vertical lava flow caves, used in the past as Neviera. The tour will be hosted by a local multilingual guide who will be available to explain to you all of your surroundings during your tour. During the winter period, in case of snow, the trail will be carried out with snowshoes.

Alessio, our guide, punctual, kind and helpful, also pampered us with a homemade focaccia and in a difficult moment (since it was raining) he even lent us a spare jacket. The route, as expected, turned out to be very simple, a real walk at the foot of Etna but which turned out to be interesting and also slightly difficult given the abundant rain. At the end of the route we were lucky enough to see a small activity of the volcano live, culminating in a black smoke.
