  • Learn about the 2002 volcanic eruption and see its effects

Travel to new heights on a guided trek up Europe's highest volcano. Along the way, admire vast volcanic landscapes, cross lava flows, and wander through beech forests. Learn about the local geography from your professional guide and snap photos of the panoramic views. Meet the guide Piano Provenzana, a well-known ski slope in the area. After an introduction and safety briefing, the hike will begin on an easy path along the edge of a lava flow. Gradually climb the mountain through a forest of beech trees before reaching the base of the craters on the northern side. Witness the site where the most important eruption of the last decades took place and hear stories from your local guide. Cross more lava flows that leaked through the sides of the creators and see the remains of the centuries-old Ragabo Pinewood. Your Etna trekking adventure will end back at Piano Provenzana.
