  • Visit a lava cave equipped with helmets and flashlights
  • Take in the nearby scenery of birch forests
  • Taste some of Etna's produce including honey, wines, liquors, and more

Description

Begin your trip to Etna with an easy walk around the Sartorius Craters, whose eruption is dated back to 1865. This excursion to Mount Etna will allow you to understand the different types of eruptions that can take place on volcanoes, as you undergo an easy trek of about 4 kilometers up and down this interesting fissure eruption site. Afterward, head to the Etna Nord Ski Resort, where a lunch break is planned in a beautiful chalet at 1,900 meters above sea level. Following lunch, embark on a cave exploration of a lava tube. Created by a prehistoric lava flow, it is now enriched by the Etna birch forest which surrounds it. This cave was allegedly used for some time by bandits, whereas others say the tunnel was used to store snow during winter to then be used in the warmer seasons. Whatever the truth behind its common use during the past centuries, it's a wonderful place to explore with caving equipment such as helmets and torches to ensure a safe visit. If time allows, the excursion will conclude with a free tasting of Etna's finest products, including honey, wine, liqueurs and much more at a local producer in Zafferana Etnea. This village of honey sits along the Etna Wine Route, which will lead you back to your accommodation where you will be dropped off at the conclusion of your tour. Alternatively, upgrade your experience to a private tour and enjoy an itinerary adapted to your desires, specifications, and pace. The guide will follow a tailor-made itinerary based on your requests, a route that can also be reviewed during the day.
