Discover the wild and multifaceted nature of Etna.
A wonderful sensory experience.
We will enjoy a glass of good Etna Doc wine to wake up your palate.
Stage I: We leave Catania in our vehicle and reach the small towns and villages on Etna. After passing through the town of Zafferana Etnea, we follow the SP92 road which crosses over the ancient lava flow from the 1792 eruption. Your nature guide will give you an overview of Mount Etna’s volcanic system here and illustrate the differences between the various types of volcanoes in the world.
Stage II: We continue towards Monte Pomiciaro where, surrounded by volcanic nature, we will reach the majestic caldera of Etna called the Ox Valley.
Stage III: We continue further on in the direction of Rifugio Sapienza on the south side of Etna at an altitude of 2000m to visit the old Silvestri Craters, created in 1892. Here the scenery becomes lunar thanks to the more recent lava flows of 2001/2002 and we can feel the destructive and regenerative force of the volcano called “a Muntagna” by locals.
Stage IV: Taste Etna Doc wine and enjoy a colorful sunset.
Stage V: Return to Catania.
