Thanks to the Etna Trekking Excursion experience you will be able to admire the unique landscapes of Etna, passing through old lava flows that mother Etna gave us, pine and larch forests and the suggestive lava flow caves.

Starting from Piano Vetore (Etna South) from an altitude of around 1800m, we will head towards Monte Nero degli Zappini crossing an uphill sandy path and passing the inevitable stop at the Santa Barbara cave, a characteristic cannon stone.

Once you arrive under Monte Nero (Etna South), based on your physical capabilities, your Trekking instructor Rossella will show you the various alternatives to continue the Etna Trekking Excursion experience in complete relaxation and safety.

The circular tour will end in Piano Vetore, same place as the starting point.

This is the Trekking experience suitable for everyone, with an itinerary that allows various possibilities of customization, based on your technical and physical abilities, within the limit of 2 hours and thirty minutes foreseen for the experience, and all at a single price.
