Full description
Spend 8 hours exploring Mount Etna, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2013. Enjoy the opportunity to take in the slopes and the higher altitudes of the mountain. Depart by bus with a tour leader, stopping first at the Alcantara Gorges. The impressive site was formed from solidified basalt. You can take a walk along the bed of the river (for an additional fee). Continue on to Randazzo, a medieval town, where you’ll visit the historical center and admire the main cathedral that’s made entirely of lava stone. Next the drive follows along the foot of Etna, passing by the town of Adrano in the south. You’ll reach Rifugio Sapienza, Etna South, at an elevation of 1,900 meters. There is the possibility of some soft trekking to visit the most recent lava flows and the Silvestri Craters, now extinct. If you like, there is a further optional ascent by cable car to 2,500 meters, with a continuation by off-road vehicle to the main crater. This ascent depends on weather and snow conditions and is not included in the tour price.

Good tour with an experienced guide

Commitment to a fixed execution only the day before, minibus with uncomfortable seats for tall people. Otherwise good tour, contact to the organizer as well.
