Full description
Your 6-hour excursion begins with a pick-up at your Catania accommodation and a drive by air-conditioned Jeep or minivan to Mount Etna. As you ascend to a height of 2,000 meters, your professional guide will tell you about the history of the volcano, and will be ready to answer all your questions. Different aspects of the volcano will be highlighted, such as its nature and resources, its amazing landscapes and its huge lava flows that have destroyed buildings and roads. At an altitude of 2,000 meters, you’ll take a guided walk among the ancient craters and recent lava flows, surrounded by a surreal unique moonscape. The trek is an easy one, suitable for everyone, including families with young children and older members. After the trek and a short break you’ll take the car to your second stop. Wearing a helmet and with a flashlight, you’ll visit and explore a lava flow cave. Learn about its origin and the features inside from your guide. The third and final stop will be at a viewpoint to take in the panorama of the Valle del Bove, the most important valley on the east slope of the volcano.
