Etna and Alcantara

If you are travelling with children this is the perfect itinerary for you! A day of soft trekking on Mount Etna through centuries-old-woods, eccentric craters, and unique lava formation of Mt Etna, to admire the summit craters from different points. The visit to one of the caves is suggestive, remembering to always wear the necessary equipment, such as helmets and torches. After a regenerating break, it is a must to stop at the Alcantara Gorges, the natural canyon in the territory of Motta Camastra. In case of warmer temperatures, before going back home, we recommend you to cool off in the cold waters of the river!
It is a very easy itinerary which you can also do independently, but if you want to discover everything about Etna book your tour Summer Classic Experience and the guides of Etna Experience will be happy to guide you along unknown paths to the cold waters of Alcantara, where you could say “hello” to spring!

Etna and summit craters

A tour suitable for everybody. With the use of the cable car and accompanied by volcanological guides it will allow you to reach the summit craters of Etna.
If you will go on your own all you have to do is to go to the stairs of the Etna Cable car,next to Rifugio Sapienza, to start the climb up to an altitude of 2500 meters, then moving on 4×4 cars you will go up until 2900 meters. From there the trek will start up to the summit craters and then you will walk down the path back to the station of the cable car that takes you back to the Rifugio Sapienza.
If you want to live this experience accompanied by a naturalistic guide who will come with you from Catania and guide you to the cable car, to then show you other paths, you can book the tour Etna Top Easy,that is the most requested tour as soon as spring begins!

Sunset on Etna

In spring the temperature become softer and days get longer so let’s take advantage of it to experience a unique event: the sunset seen from the highest volcano in Europe! A tour suitable for everyone, even families with children, also because you just need half a day, from the early hours in the afternoon until the sunset.
Reached a panoramic point on the Bove Valley you can see from here the summit craters as well as lunar landscapes and all the colors that only Etna can offer. We also advise you to equipe yourself with a snack (perhaps a sandwich or one of the typical products of street food in Catania) to refresh yourself before returning home.
To be accompanied by a guide would be the ideal solution to live a complete experience, also visiting a lava cave while an expert guide provides you with all the information about the place. To book your place, have a look at the tour Sunset Experience .
