One of Etna Experience’s expert naturalistic guides will pick you up at 9:00 a.m. from your hotel in Catania or from an agreed meeting point, to take you aboard one of our 8-seater vehicles (jeep or minivan).
You guide will lead you to discover the fascinating volcanic phenomena, walking through ancient woods, on old craters and unique lava formations. During the trekking route you will be able to admire from various points, the summit craters on the landscape.
You will visit a volcanic cave using the equipment provided by us (helmets and torches).
At lunch we will stop in a farmhouse restaurant in a mountain road for a genuine and typical Sicilian lunch (made of appetizer, first course, water and wine). Please let us know in advance if you have food allergies or if you follow particular diets, like vegan or vegetarian.
Finally you will visit the beautiful Alcantara’s Gorges, formed thousands of years ago thanks to a lava flow that invaded the bed of the Alcantara river. The crash between the river’s extremely cold water and the incandescent lava created one of the most spectacular sceneries in nature.
The Mt Etna and Alcantara Gorges tour will finish at 6:00/6:30 p.m., when you will come back to Catania.
The price for the Mt Etna and Alcantara Gorges tour is 75€ for adults and 65€ for children and students up to 24 years old.
