The Tour

Hours of fascinating trekking around the most interesting places on the North-East side of Etna, scene of the last impressive eruption: Piano Provenzana.
Different naturalistic routs with a scheduled circumnavigation of a button-like row of craters, lava-flowing caves and native plants.
The tour is also designed for those who aren’t used to trekking but in good health conditions. Pauses are planned during the hike and this walk is smoother due to the very few obstacles. There will be another break for a tasty and natural “packed lunch” offered by Etna Experience.
