Full description
After being collected from your Catania accommodation, you will make your way with your guide to the base of Mount Etna. Once here an expert guide will lead you along a beautiful natural path, most probably on the south slope of Etna, while explaining the origins of the volcano to you. You will visit some eccentric craters (such as the Monti Silvestri) at 2,000 meters (6,562 feet), which are surrounded by an evocative lunar landscape. You will then visit a volcanic cave using the equipment provided for you (helmets and torches). Following this, you will have a snack consisting of typical Sicilian street food (Tavola Calda), complete with water and a glass of wine. It is possible to arrange, upon request, a suitable dish to vegetarians and coeliacs. Once having completed this snack break, you will make your way back down the mountain before re-boarding your vehicle and returning back to your point of origin.
