What you'll do
This is a historical, volcanologic and secret places excursion travelling for 90km int total, from Etna south to Etna east, exploring and walking the places of some historical massive eruptions and many other lesser known places on the slope of Etna (around 10 places to see) with no tourists around. Trekking duration is about 3hours. Include: - visit to the Valle del bove; - a quick stop at Rifugio Sapienza at 2000m o.s.l.(the highest place reachable with the car); - many stops into vertical and horizontal caves, craters, calderas, canyons, destroyed buildings, lava quarries, lava rivers of different ages, big eruptions valleys etc. During the trip, you will be told about some volcanology of Etna and the history of some of the particular eruptions that destroyed lots of towns and parts of Catania. This trip total durations is around 6 to 7 hours, but you can see a lot of places around, up and down the volcano slope. And if you prefer to stay more in a specific place, time is not a problem.
I'm a certified Tour Guide of Sicily and travel designer. I love to take people around telling them about history, volcanology, archaeology, food and secrets places of Sicily! I'm still exploring Sicily, my native island, and where I live in particular, the massive Volcano Etna! I've been always looking for places far from the civilizations, places where you can feel the wildness sometimes or where everything is authentic. There is where I take my guests during every single trip I guide, "off the beaten tracks".
