Led by our volcanological guides, on a climb through geology, volcanology, flora and fauna, we will admire the active craters of the Bocca nuova, Voragine, the North East and the South East Crater, and then continue in the direction of the Belvedere, a vantage point that will allow you to admire the great caldera of the Valle del Bove.

The climb to the summit craters of Etna, due to its challenging nature, is recommended for people who are accustomed to taxing hikes, and it is absolutely not recommended to those suffering from heart conditions and to untrained individuals. The minimum age for attending is 8.
