The tour begins visiting lateral craters of Etna located at an altitude of 2000 meters where you will walk among ancient craters and old eruptions. The route continues along a path where it will be possible to admire the magnificent Valle del Bove, a huge caldera located on the east side of the volcano.
Afterwards, you will visit a lava cave equipped with torches and helmets that will let you enter right inside the volcano. After the excursion you will have free time to have lunch and then continue towards the Alcantara gorges, a natural canyon that houses one of the best examples of columnar basalt. At an altitude of 1250m, the gorge landscape is characterized by small cascades of clear water surrounded by rich local vegetation.
In summertime, we suggest you bring your own bathing suit.
