Etna morning tour is one of the most requested excursions adapted for all age groups. During the tour we will move by minivan or SUV car. We start from your accommodation in Catania or nearby area. We will visit Etna stopping for short walks, in order to appreciate places of great naturalistic interest within the Etna Park – UNESCO Heritage site.
- We will admire its old, extinct craters at an altitude of 2000 meters and amazing views of the Ionian Coast, from Taormina to Catania. We will also have a chance to see a majestic Valle del Bove (Ox Valley) – a huge natural amphitheater that covers almost the entire eastern flank of the volcano.
- We will encounter many ancient and recent flows of solidified lava and pyroclastic material and learn about different examples of particular endemic flora along the way.
- We will stop for a short snack break, during which we will have the opportunity to taste some Sicilian delicacies.
- Then equipped with torches and helmets we will experience the thrill of descending into a lava tube to admire a unique spectacle literally inside the volcano!
- During the trip, we will get to know a lot of interesting facts about Mount Etna and volcanic phenomena, as well as history and anecdotes referring to the territory dominated by the highest active volcano in Europe.
