Etna: the most fascinating volcano in Europe!

Visiting the Etna with us is not your typical tour. We offer two differente levels:

Easy

Essentially this trek of average difficulty takes about six hours and will take you along the Bove valley. We will depart from the Sapienza refuge at 1900 mslm with the cable car, which will take it to 2500 mslm. From there you will walk about 70 meters until you get to the hillock and then you go down the valley for about 45 minutes walking on very thin sand. The drop is roughly 1000 meters. The excursion then continues along the valley going from a “lunar” environment to one that resembles the Alps. This excursion includes also the visit to a lava cave.

Hard

Essentially this trek of hard difficulty takes about eight hours and will take you along the Bove valley. We will depart from the Sapienza refuge at 1900 mslm with the cable car, which will take it to 2500 mslm. From there you will walk about 70 meters until you get to the hillock and then you go down the valley for about 45 minutes walking on very thin sand. The drop is roughly 1000 meters. The excursion then continues along the valley going from a “lunar” environment to one that resembles the Alps. This excursion includes also the visit to a lava cave.
