Start the tour with an early morning pickup from your hotel in Catania. Climb into a comfortable 4x4 vehicle and set off for Mount Etna. Arrive at the starting point for your off-the-beaten-track hike.
As you begin to walk, admire the fascinating landscape of the Valle del Bove, the biggest depression of Mount Etna, and its moonlike deserts. From there take in the breathtaking views of the smoking summit craters and the surrounding landscape facing the Ionian Sea.
The tour also includes the opportunity to explore a lava tube with helmets and flashlights. Experience the incredible natural phenomenon created when the surface lava solidified but magma continued to flow into the tunnel. Finally, in the afternoon, get dropped off back in Catania where your tour concludes.
