What you'll do

During this experience we will visit the south side of Mt. Etna and thanks to the Funivia dell' Etna (the cable car) we will quickly reach 2500 meters of altitude and from there, we will then start the hiking to reach the various points of view. We will take several breaks to admire the breathtaking landscape, the lunar-looking lava fields, the huge Valle del Bove, extinct craters and much more.
We will take a look inside a lava tube, a natural tunnel made by lava..a trilling experience.

It's an experience for travelers who want to walk .. but if you don't want to, check out my other experience. -> Etna excursions https://abnb.me/FOc1b9PhfV?s=51

NB. Time is indicative, I text you everything the day before

The ticket of the Funivia is not included.

Mt. Etna is my passion, I love walking and hiking, playing sports, taking pictures, traveling and listening to the stories of every place I visit even if no place is like my Sicily, my volcano Etna. My homeland is full of history, archeology, nature.

Where you'll be

Mount Etna is Europe's highest volcano and one of the world's most active and for this reason since 2013 it is UNESCO World Heritage Site. Etna is also a Regional Park created in 1987. "A Muntagna" as it is called, can be visited both in summer and in winter along its wonderful trails with breathtaking views. A concentrate of history, colors, flavors, smells and unique landscapes.
