Description

Enjoy a full day trip departing from Taormina or Giardini Naxos for a guided hike on Mount Etna, including a delicious lunch. You’ll trek on one of Europe’s most active volcanoes departing comfortably from Taormina or Giardini Naxos and watch the landscape change as you ascend, preparing to live an unforgettable experience into the nature of Mount Etna. At your arrival at the slopes of Mount Etna, you will meet your guide who will take you to the trekking path on the volcano. Start climbing towards the top of some of the 7 so called lateral craters which were formed during the 1865 eruption, creating an amazing “buttons shapes” effect: several cones in succession aligned on the eruptive axis as if they were buttons. Dip into the special atmosphere that marks out the area, between pyroclastic materials produced from the volcano during the explosive phase of the eruption such as scoria, lapilli and volcanic 'bombs' and exciting natural: you will have the chance to admire splendid tree species such as the betula aetnensis, a kind of birch usually growing in North Europe which is found in Sicily only on the North side of the Mount Etna. Along the hiking route, if you will be lucky enough to have a sunny clear day, you will be blessed with incredible panoramas, from Calabria to Taormina: sometimes it is even possible to see Stromboli island! Then, after this pleasant hike, it will be time for a refreshing lunch with typical Sicilian products on the Etna which will make this experience even more special. The lunch will include 3 courses and beverages, the perfect way to compensate your hiking effort of the day! There will also be the chance to spend about 1 hour of free time on your own around the area, before going back to Taormina or Giardini Naxos.
