Excursion to the highest viewpoint on Mount Etna
After a pleasant ride in our comfortable vehicles, passing the small towns of Pedara and Nicolosi and cold lava fields formed over the years, you will reach the “Rifugio Sapienza Etna”. Here the Emotion Etna 3000 m begins.
By cable car you will reach an altitude of 2500 m and will eventually get up to 3000 m by special unimog vehicles. The area you will find yourself in now, is called “Torre del Filosofo”.
From here you can admire the gigantic “caldera”, the so-called Bove Valley and will have a stunning view over the Mediterranean, if weather permitting.
A competent guide will accompany you during a approx. 40 minutes tour, visiting the hot smoking craters, born after the 2002-2003 eruption. In case of an eruption you will have the chance to see lava flows. After a short ride in the car the tour ends with the visit of a real lava cave equipped with helmets and torches.
