Here it is!
Your first night will be spent in a mountain hut at Piano Provenzana (1,800m), followed by two days' trekking (covering 35kms) across the Pista alto montana, the circular path around Mt. Etna.
The Pista alto montana is only the warm up for your main challenge. After this circular trek you will take a cable link from 1,800m to 2,500m and continue to trek to the top of Mt. Etna. Your 8 hour trek will be accompanied by a specialist volcanologist guide who will inform you about Etna’s historic activity.
On summiting you receive your reward; a complete view of Mt. Etna with an amazing panorama of the four craters at the top and incredible views of the Eastern coast of Sicily.
You will descend to Sicily’s capital city, Catania where you will enjoy a fine celebratory dinner.
