Description

30 minutes helicopter flight above Etna volcano. After take-off, the flight will proceed to the northern side of the volcano, flying over the towns of Piedimonte Etneo and Linguaglossa. During the ascent you can admire a majestic forest of conifers and the old lava flows that descend almost to the Etna villages. As you get ever nearer to the peaks, you will fly over the ski resort of Piano Provenzana, enjoying a unique view of the flows that formed the series of craters called 'la bottoniera'; here, the vegetation ends and is replaced by the sciara that will leads you up to the majestic view of the summit craters. We are at an altitude of about 3500 meters and the view from here covers the whole of Sicily, the Aeolian Islands and Calabria. You will begin the descent along the volcano's more rugged side to reach the Sapienza ski resort and refuge. From here, you will enjoy a unique view of the city of Catania and the Gulf. Proceeding east, we will fly over the old, extinct Silvestri Craters before passing over the Schiena dell'asilo 'donkey's back' that leads to the vast Valle del Bove. We will survey the 1992 flows that almost destroyed the village of Zafferana Etnea. After a last look at the coast between Catania and Taormina, the vineyards and lush crops and it is time to return.
