Take a half day tour of the highest volcano in Europe. You will be picked up at your accommodation in Sicily in an off-road vehicle (among others the popular Land Rover 110) and then head off in the direction of Mount Etna.
The half-day excursion includes an easy walk to the impressive Monte Fontana and a visit of the famous valley Valle del Bove. Wander through old and new lava flows, walk on extinct craters, and visit a real lava cave equipped with helmets and flashlights, where ice was produced centuries ago.
Your guide will show you the great variety of flora and fauna here - plants and animals which populate the active volcano. While walking through ancient forests you will learn a lot about the vegetation and the wildlife of Mount Etna. Your last stop of the half-day tour will be around the cold lava streams of Piano Provenzana, which were destroyed during the last big eruption in 2002.
At the end of the tour you will be driven back to your accommodation. Altogether this will be an unforgettable experience.
