First Stop

One of Etna Experience’s expert guides will lead you along a beautiful naturalistic path, while explaining the origins of our volcano. You will visit some ancient craters (probably the Monti Silvestri) surrounded by an evocative lunar landscape.


Second Stop

You will visit a cave of volcanic origin using the equipment that we provide (helmets and torches). The visit to the cave is not made in case of significant snowfall or presence of ice at the entrance that would make the entrance dangerous. During the tour there will be a stop for a delicious snack based on “Tavola Calda Siciliana” and a good glass of red sicilian wine.
