THE TOUR:

The Tour includes going up to the quote of 3000mt, where the world as you know it will be left behind to turn into a unique panorama: the so called black desert of lava stones dominates over any other color. Afterwards you will walk on the edge of extinct craters to better understand the structure of the Volcano and the lifecycle of an eruption. Then, equipped with strings, torches and helmets you will visit a lava cave witnessing what happens when lava manages to dig underground.

For lunch we will enjoy a typical Sicilian lunch (full menu, drinks included) and excellent Etna wines.

The menu can be revisited upon request for our vegetarian guests or in case of special food requirements, but it will always be full of seasonal products carefully selected from the area.

Back on the 4WD, your adventure will carry on climbing up an ancient lava flow in order to reach one of the most breathtaking sceneries that Mt Etna gives us, such as the renowned “Valle del Bove”.
