Très sympa. Prévoir les chaussures de randonnée ! La descente est pas très agréable dans les débris de lave!!! Vous aurez les chaussures remplies de sable.

Very interesting experience to walk on cold lava ridges. Domenico our very kind guide told us a lot of interesting things about the Etna and the many eruptions.
