After leaving the cable car station (2500m), we’ll climb to the top of the Montagnola (2640m) where we’ll be able to enjoy the great view of the summit craters.
Just below the top of the Montagnola there is a volcanic sand gully ,with 900 metres difference in height, which descends into the Valle del Bove.
The route winds its way between vertical walls on which you can see layers of age old eruptive centres and lava dykes.
We’ll then hike along the foot of the valley over the 1991-93 Pāhoehoe(ropy surface) lava field to then come out of the valley through some beautiful beech woods.
