The Tour starts with a magnificent walk on the edge of extinct craters in order to understand the structure of the Volcano and the lifecycle of an eruption. Afterwards, equipped with strings, torches and helmets you will visit a lava cave and back on the 4WD you will climb 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”. 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.
After lunch, your adventure will carry on discovering the wonderful “Alcantara Gorges” a basaltic lava stone natural canyon formed thousands of years ago, shaped by the running water of the icy Alcantara river.
