Escursion Details

Our Mount Etna trip set off from Taormina or Giardini Naxos around 8:30. Our guide will pick you up at your hotel. On the way to the volcano, we will drive along a panoramic road that winds through two mountain towns and beautiful landscapes. After one hour, we stop at a mountain chalet for a coffee break, to use the toilet, and change into trekking boots. The first stage of the tour will be along a lava field; here, the guide will explain the dynamics that ignite Mt etna eruption in October 2002. We soon start a relaxing hike, first through a picturesque birch forest and then to some UNESCO World Heritage craters overlooking a vast lava desert, large expanses of lush forest, and the glittering sea in the far distance. Before lunch, wearing a helmet and using a torch, we will explore one of Mount Etna's most famous caves. Lunch will be served in a beautiful Chalet immersed in the Pine forest.
