Northern Etna Trekking – the volcano and Monti Sartorius
Excursions every Friday
A day spent discovering Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, with its magnificent lunar landscapes, ancient craters and recent lava flows. Our excursion takes place on the northern slope of the volcano where vegetation is particularly rich and the force of nature makes itself felt.
A walk along the edges of ancient craters will bring us to the heart of the volcano so that we can see close-up what the environment is like.
Trekking is the best way to experience this unique place; join us for a day in the heart of nature!
