The excursion up to more less 3000 meters on Mount Etna starts from Piano Provenzana, Etna Nord. With comfortable 4×4 buses you will drive via the unpaved road up the volcano to the astrophysical observatory Pizzi Deneri located at 2810 meters.
Along the way you can enjoy beautiful views of old craters, the contrast between nature and lava and beautiful views to the sea.
Once you arrive at 2805 meters you will do a small trek up to an altitude of 2865 meters (altitude depending on the activity of the volcano). From this viewpoint you can see the famous Valle del Bove, underneath the North-East crater. The volcano guide will tell you a lot about the volcano here. From here you have also a breathtaking view on the Sicilian coast.
Then you return to the 4×4 bus and descend to 2200 meters altitude. Here you will make a second stop after which a short trek of about 20 minutes follows over the edge of the crater of the 2002 eruption. Through a moderately steep path over lava sand you will descend to the 4×4 bus that will drive you back to Piano Provenzana.
