Full description

A different experience that will allow you to visit two of the wonderful natural attractions of our island: Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, and the spectacular Alcantara Gorges. The two treks will be enlivened by an intermediate stop in one of Etna's renowned wineries. Begin by meeting your nature guide at the designated meeting point or near your accommodation. Start by visiting Etna and reach an altitude of about 2000 meters on the north side of the volcano.

Walk along a beautiful nature trail that will lead you to some of Etna's inactive side craters, admiring the majesty of the central mouths in front of you. Have the opportunity to visit a cave of lava origin or lava tunnels formed as a result of eruptions. Helmet on your head and torch in hand you'll go inside the cave to discover it. In the afternoon, head towards the last stop of the day, the Alcantara Gorge. Enter the canyon with its spectacular basalt gorges. You will be fascinated by its unique shapes and details caused by the erosion of the river Alcantara that made them famous throughout the world.
