The excursion that we propose has as scenery the peak craters of Etna in all their majesty. The departure is from 1.900 m a. s. l.- South side of the volcano – North of Nicolosi. First you will take a cable car and then a special off road minibus to reach 2.750 m a.s.l., where, with an authorized alpine/volcanologic guide you will walk until the highest altitudes allowed (according to the volcanic activity). From this altitude you can admire the impressive summit of Etna and, therefore, the active craters of Etna and their spectacular grandeur (Bocca Nuova – Voragine – South-East Crater – North-East Crater).
During the descent it will be possible to explore the places and the craters of the recent eruptions. The above-cited descent will be realized on foot, in company with the guide from the highest altitudes allowed (according to the volcanic activity) to 2.500 m, where you will re-take the cable way to come back to the point of departure.
