Goditi la vista mozzafiato dalla vetta più alta di Sicilia
This tour begins at “Piano Provenzana” and follows a mountain trail at an altitude of 2900 meters. Traveling by off road vehicle, we will reach a high mountain slope framed by magnificent views of lava and volcanic sand along the rift created in the 2002 eruption. Here, we will walk on the edge of the craters of 2002 and see how a volcano is created. Here, we will identify minerals characterized by colors ranging from yellow to red to blue. From here the breathtaking view encompasses the Gulf of Taormina, the Bay of Naxos, the Straits of Messina and Calabria and the mountain range of Nebrodi to Rocca Novara, one can take in the most impressive views in the world, seemingly lunar landscapes created by multiple lateral eruptions along the North face of Mount Etna. Continuing our excursion with our off-road vehicles to an altitude of 2900 meters the North-East crater (where the volcano observatory is located), dominates the area. From this point it will start the ascent by walk on a path surrounded by volcanic scoria and bombs. The total climb is of 300 mt till we will arrive to the view point, at a height of 2900 mt. There we will stop to admire the greatness, the uniqueness and the processes of the volcanic environment, united to the spectacle of the view you can enjoy from the roof of Sicily (the visibility could change according to the weather or volcanic conditions). In clear weather, one can see both the 'Lion' and the 'Bove' valleys, the majesty of the North East and South East. The tour ends by going back through Piano delle Concazze and then descending to Piano Provenzana, the arrival point of our excursion.
