DescriptionYou will take a trek from the Rifugio Sapineza to the Silvestri Craters almost 2,000 metres above sea level! The Etna Express tour from Catania gives you an incredible experience in just a few hours. Depart from the historic centre of Catania and watch the landscape change as you ascend the slopes of the fearsome volcano. Once you get to 1,900 metres you’ll be at the Sapienza Refuge, where you’ll get out and meet your guide. You don’t have to go right to the summit to be impressed by Mount Etna. One of the easiest and most accessible hikes is to the Silvestri craters, which were formed in 1892. The craters are inactive, so pose no danger to visitors. There’s the possibility to rent additional equipment to make your trek comfortable too, such as hiking shoes, key-ways and hiking poles. Once you’ve seen the craters, you’ll visit a lava cave if the conditions are safe, where you’ll be given helmets and flashlights for safety and peace of mind. After this incredible experience, you’ll be likely to have worked up an appetite. And there’s more good news! You can enjoy a tasting on the way back to Catania from Rifugio Sapienza, where you’ll sample fine Sicilian local products. The Etna Express tour is available to depart both at morning or sunset, where you can make the most of a special atmosphere.
