What we will do

We will be picked up at 9:00 am at our accommodation in theCatania or Taormina area. By transfer, we will reach Viagrande, a small town at the foot ofMount Etna. The volcanological guide will welcome us and, after a brief introductory briefing, we will be ready to set off on our private off-road adventure.

On board the 4x4 , we will climb up the winding slopes of the volcano, stopping every now and then to admire the landscape and listen to the guide's stories. At an altitude of about 1,900 metres, we will get out of the 4x4 to begin a 3-kilometre-long trek with little altitude difference.

Still accompanied by the guide's information, we will cross the extinct craters and visit a lava flow cave, inside of which ice stalactites form during the winter, making the environment even more impressive.

All around we will be surrounded by the fascinating landscapes of the volcano, the brown earth contrasting with the green vegetation and the blue sky and sea. After the panoramic tour and the visit to the cave, we will return to the starting point by off-road vehicle. In total, theexclusive activity will last about 5 hours.
