Etna Day Tour: Mount Etna is the highest Mediterranean island mountain and the most active stratovolcano in the world. A day spent with a small friendly tour group, beautiful nature, endemic flora and fauna, cinder cones and lava caves of Etna Regional Nature Park. Departs Catania, available all year long.
At 9:00am, you'll be picked up at your accommodation with our 4-wheel drive. You'll reach the altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level. From there, you'll enjoy a moderate hike for a duration of approximately 3 hours to admire the fascinating landscape of the Valle del Bove depression and it's moon like desert which is an old caldera from where we will have a breathtaking view of the smoking craters of Mount Etna and the surrounding landscapes facing the lonian sea. Your tour also includes an exploration of a lava tube, an experience that takes you to unique locations in Etna's most spectacular lava tube caves, a natural phenomena created when the surface lava solidified but magma continued to flow in tunnels. You'll be dropped off at your accommodation at 3:30pm.
