Detailed description

This tour for cruise passengers with arrival at the port of Catania (exit VECCHIA DOGANA) includes the visit to Mount Etna where you will be surrounded by stunning views, admire ancient craters, lava flows, lunar landscapes and know the best of the Etnean history and territory.
After being picked-up at the Port of Catania, you will reach 1920 m a.s.l. by car and have some stops in some specific points of interest on the way. While going up, the guide will tell you the history of our territory and you will discover the last eruptions and Silvestri Craters.
 
Arrived at Sapienza Refuge you will opt to: 
  • Go for a hike along one of the Etna Park paths at 2000 meters with one of our guides;
  • Choose the option “Etna high altitude” buying an extra: with the cablecar service offered by “Funivia dell’Etna”, you will reach 2504 meters a.s.l. in about 15 minutes, you will continue from here with a 4x4 bust until 2900 meters a.s.l. (Torre del Filosofo). Here you will be captured by the breathless beauty of a landscape suspended above the sea, where you can observe the massive central crater, the South-East crater and the older lava flows that characterize the etnean landscape. With the help of the alpine guides (just in italian and english) you will visit the areas where the life of the volcano comes out, in total respect of law and safety rules. You will go back to Sapienza Refuge with the 4x4 bus and the cable car.
The excursion will continue with the visit of a lava cave with helmets and torches.
 
Before going back to the port, you will stop in Zafferana Etnea for a sampling of local products in an organic farm.
