Description

Scenic Tour with Alcantara Gorges: Your tour will take you first to the intriguing formations of the Alcantara Gorges for a short stop (excluding entry). Afterwards you will head to the medieval town of Randazzo where you will take a special train called the 'Circumetnea' to the ancient city of Adrano, right at the foot of Mount Etna. Finally you will proceed comfortably by bus up to Rifugio Sapienza on the south side of Mount Etna at 1900 meters. You will then ascend by cableway and off-road jeeps up to the authorized crater areas at approximately 3,000 meters escorted by licensed Guides of the CAI (Italian Alpine Club). Here you can enjoy a stop to admire the activity of the summit craters in a safety zone according to weather conditions. Option from Taormina: Etna, Randazzo and Alcantara:  Enjoy a full-day tour of the highest volcano in Europe, Mount Etna. Tour guests meet at the bus terminal in Taormina, Via Pirandello. The tour is led by a knowledgeable tour leader. You can enjoy exclusive information of the history of Mount Etna and the surrounding areas. An air-conditioned coach will transport you to the Alcantara Gorges (entry extra). This is an impressive natural sculpture. Thousands of years ago the riverbed was blocked by lava flow from Mount Etna, and as the lava cooled more quickly than the water it crystallized. Tall columns of lava have since stood here and as the river eroded through the lava it has created a series of impressive gorges. Don’t forget your camera! The next stop is the town of Randazzo in the province of Catania. Situated at the northern foot of mount Etna, it is the closest habitation near the volcano. You will view the famous cathedral made from lava and the bustling Sunday market. From here you will ascend Mount Etna by coach. You will have time for lunch in one of the many cafés or restaurants.  Ascent by jeeps to the authorized crater zones at approximately 3,000 meters assisted by licensed guides of the CAI (Italian Alpine Club). Stop to admire the eventual activity of the summit craters in the area of security.  At the end of the tour you will be driven back to Taormina where the tour ends.
