If you choose the “Sunset” excursion your experience to discover the Volcano begins when we come to pick you up.
Our guides will lead you through antique villages full of history and tradition, the old streets will soon leave their way to the characteristic paths in the rich woods of the beautiful “Parco dell’Etna” to gradually assist to the power of the Volcano and the deep changes which is able to make on the surrounding landscape.
Every day is a different day on Mt Etna… colors, perfumes, flora and fauna change as the seasons change always giving unforgettable emotions. The Tour starts with a 4WD ride 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”.
Afterwards, equipped with strings, torches and helmets you will visit a lava cave and in the end a magnificent walk on the edge of extinct craters in order to understand the structure of the Volcano and the lifecycle of an eruption and to finally lead you, at sunset, to the perfect spot to enjoy the show.
