Description

We’ll leave from the port of Catania for Mount Etna, one of Europe’s most famous volcanoes. Century after century, the eruptions have modified the slopes of the mountain, forming unique sculptures of lava and ice. Our coach will climb the mountain to the Sapienza refuge, at about 6,234 feet high (1,900 m). From there, we’ll continue our ascent by aerial tram and then in a four-wheel-drive bus to the “Tower of the Philosopher” at about 9,580 feet (2,920 m) in altitude. From the crater area and the ancient, monumental “Valle de Bove” caldera, you’ll take in the superb view across the valley to the Mediterranean Sea. A mountain guide will escort you on a walk around the crater before returning to the refuge using the same means of transport as your arrival. We’ll have lunch on the slopes of the volcanic mountain during our trip. At the end of the day, you’ll return to the port.
