DescriptionStart your Sicilian adventure by meeting your friendly guide in Catania, either at your accomodation or another agreed upon location. After a short meet and greet you will take a brief, scenic drive to either the Sartorius craters, or the 2002 crater on the Northeast side of Etna. Whilst here, you will be introduced through your knowledgeable guide to the fascinating world of volcanic phenomena. Walk through ancient woods, extinct craters and old Lava flows. Witness deserts of lava and ashes, peculiar lava formations and traces of previous eruptions - all part of the unique landscape you will discover on the Northeast side of the volcano. During the excursions you will reach a maximum altitude of 2000-meters. Receive the opportunity to explore a volcanic cave like the Grotto del Ladroni or Grotta Cassone. You will be provided with all the necessary equipment, such as helmets and torches. Stop at a nice farmhouse restaurant up along the mountain road for a genuine Sicilian lunch in a convivial atmosphere (lunch is made of an appetizer, first course, water and wine), outdoor or indoor dependant on weather. After lunch, you will visit the Alcantara canyons, formed thousands of years ago due to lava flow that invaded the bed of the Alcantara river. The crash between the river’s extremely cold water and the incandescent lava created one of the most spectacular sceneries in nature. In the Alcantara river you can bathe, participants are urged to bring their swimsuits and beach shoes. End your day back in Catania at around 18:00 to 18:30. You will be dropped off in the same location you were picked up.
