Description

After leaving the city, you'll be on the way up to Rifugio Sapienza and stop in some view points. You'll be given all the information you need by the guide that will also tell you all the details of our culture and the Etna area. You will live the places of the last eruptions and see the old Silvestri Craters

From Rifugio Sapienza (1920 mamsl) you can choose one of these options:

  • Do some trekking with the guide around the area at 2000 m of the Etna Park
  • Buy the Etna high altitude tour: this is an option that gives you the opportunity to reach a higher altitude by taking a cable car from 2000 until 2500 m and a 4x4 bus from 2500 m till 2900. You'll be amazed by a spectacular view and surrounded by the last lava flows and the extinct craters of recent formation. Once you've reached 2900 m asl, the Alpine Guide will take you for a walk along one of the places where the volcano showed its life. At the end of the promenade, you will reach Rifugio Sapienza again by cable car and 4x4 bus.

    The excursion will continue with the visit of a lava tube with helmets and torches and will then end by visiting of one of the best wineries of the volcano, where you will sample of one sparkling wine and four glasses of local wines, with cold cuts, cheese, pate and olive oils locally produced.
