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).
Your guide will lead you to discover the secrets of the highest active volcano of Europe. He will introduce you to the fascinating volcanic phenomena, walking through ancient woods, on old craters and unique lava formations.
You will visit a volcanic cave using the equipment provided from us (helmets and torches). In case of heavy snow and/or ice or in case of unordinary natural events, the visit may be cancelled for safety reasons.
At the end of the trekking, still on the volcano, you will enjoy a snack made of tipical sicilian “Tavola Calda” together with a good glass of Sicilian wine. (It is possible to arrange, upon request, a suitable snack to vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs).
You will visit the historical center of Taormina. Our guide will bring you to Porta Messina, then by strolling along Corso Umberto, you will admire Palazzo Corvaia and Santa Caterina church. Finally you will visit the Greek theater, from which you will be able to have an astonishing view of the Ionic shore, with our beautiful mountain which dominate the landscape. The guide will wait for you at Porta Messina to bring you back in Catania. [It is possible to be guided by a touristic guide, upon request.]
