Overview

Highlights

  • Get the complete geological history of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe
  • Explore inside old craters, a lava cave, and walk amidst otherworldly picturesque scenery
  • Amazing photo opportunities at the ancient Valle del Bove, where civilization feels a planet away

Description

Walk right into Mount Etna's eruptive history. Your tour begins in Catania and takes you along an extraterrestrial landscape of volcanic slopes. Be transported to another world, while getting fiery facts from your local guide.

Your hike begins at a black sea of ​solidified lava from the 1991 eruption. See native flora and fauna unique to the area, get sublime views of hot lava flows, explore a lava cave, and trek to Valle del Bove, a horseshoe-shaped cavity formed by an avalanche of rocks.

Insider tip

For the best experience on this trip, it's best to take appropriate shoes, a windproof jacket and a backpack with a water bottle. It's thirsty work out there.
