Tour description

  • Departure at 8.45 am, followed by breakfast with some local products.
  • The path, after a couple of kilometers, will take us to the exact point where the 1971 lava came out from.
  • After a strenuous climb, characterized by the presence of forests of Birch Aetnensis and expanses of Saponaria and Astragalus, we will finally reach a ridge. This point overlooks the largest open-air geological museum in Europe: the Valle del Bove.
  • The descent, along the same path, will take us to one of the most beautiful and famous lava caves of Etna formed 50 years ago.
  • Finally, we will head towards the Grotta dei Ladroni, an ancient snowfield considered for many years a hiding place for brigands.
