To get to the top area of the volcano we’ll use the transportation means offered by “Funivia dell’Etna”. Once arrived up to an elevation of 3000 meters above sea level, we’ll explore the Barbagallo craters together with an experienced mountain guide. Thereafter we’ll enjoy a hike which will lead us to the “balcony” overlooking the Valle del Bove and the neighbouring volcanic cones. We’ll have a packed lunch on craters and amazing view on the gulf of Catania. After lunch, we’ll complete the tour by visiting a cave where lava once flowed.
Hiking boots, clothing suited for the exposure to high altitude conditions (jacket, hat, sunglasses, sun screen). Packed lunch.
Please be aware that the trip is not recommended for people with serious health problems, especially if concerning the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems.
