Description

After being picked up from your accommodation in Sicily, climb into an off-road 4x4 vehicle and head in the direction of Mount Etna. Make a stop to take an easy walk to the impressive Monte Fontana and visit the famous valley Valle del Bove. Wander amongst old and new lava flows and walk on extinct craters. Visit a real lava cave equipped with helmets and flashlights to see where ice was produced centuries ago. The guide will show you a great variety of flora and fauna: plants and animals which populate the active volcano. While walking through ancient forests, learn about the vegetation and wildlife of Mount Etna. Make the last stop at the cold lava streams of Piano Provenzana, which was destroyed during the last big eruption in 2002. Enjoy typical Sicilian food at a chalet including appetizers, a main course of pasta, dessert, water, bread, wine, and coffee. Then, visit the famous Alcantara Gorges, which were formed millions of years ago on the north side of the volcano. Between the cold lava flows runs a small mountain river. Here you can walk barefoot in the crystal clear ice cold water of the canyon or (during summer) have a refreshing swim. On the way to the canyon, pass by the idyllic Sicilian mountain village of Castiglione di Sicilia. Admire views of Motta Camastra in the distance which is situated on a slope. At the end of the tour get driven back to your accommodation.
