Highlights

  • We start the tour from your accommodation in Catania or a meeting point located nearby and we will move by minivan or SUV car.
  • Then from the Rifugio Sapienza area we will take a cable car and special off road track (unimog) to get to the height of 2900 meters. Here we will take a 40 minutes easy walk with the assistance of alpine guides obligatory for security reasons. We will admire Crateri Barbagallo – craters from the eruption of 2002 and amazing views of the Ionian Coast, from Taormina to Catania as well as the majestic Valle del Bove (Ox Valley) – a huge natural amphitheater that covers almost the entire eastern flank of the volcano.
  • After that we will stop for a short snack break, during which we will have the opportunity to taste some Sicilian delicacies.
  • Then equipped with torches and helmets we will experience the thrill of descending into a lava tube to admire a unique spectacle literally inside the volcano.
  • During the tour I will tell you a lot of interesting facts about Mount Etna and volcanic phenomena, as well as history and anecdotes referring to the territory dominated by the highest active volcano in Europe.
