The Chestnut of One-Hundred Horses and other historical trees on Mt.Etna

Categories: Blog

TAGS: , , ,

The nature of Mt. Etna reserves many surprises, which can be interesting for tourists too. There are in fact trees that are as important as -and maybe more than- an artistic or architectural monument and on our volcano there are at least three of them. It must be said, first of all, that Etna has special records relating to the trees that cover it. Beyond the beech forests, beautiful pine forests, here we find the highest (above sea level) chestnut trees in Europe, even over 900 meters asl, and birches at the lowest latitude (these trees being typical of the northern regions). And then there are the magnificent monumental trees … come and discover them with our excursions.

Best Mount Etna tour

For the Sicilians Mt.Etna is just “a muntagna” (THE mountain), but do not be fooled by this name or by the fact that it is a volcano so controlled to be known as “the good giant”. Etna remains an active volcano, and one of the liveliest in the world, so it is always wrong to venture among its woods, its lavic deserts or its craters without an expert guide by your side. It is important not only to know where to go but also when to go and how, by what means. We at Go Etna Excursions are here to assist you in this pleasant choice with our itineraries.

It seems as if it is never satisfied with what it has and wants more! In fact, it has not only one crater but five … and it is not sure that it has stopped here.
