I Step: On board your motorbikes you will follow the guide during the path that develops along the ancient chestnut forest of Tarderia and the castings of 1792. Here our naturalistic guide gives an explanation of the volcanic apparatus of Etna and illustrates the differences between the various types of volcanoes in the world. Continue to Monte Pomiciaro where you can admire the majesty of the Valle del Bove, a natural balcony from which to be captivated and enchanted by the magnetism that emanates the Volcano.
II Step: Returning aboard the motorcycles proceed in the direction of one of Etna's most famous lava flow caves, 'la Grotta Cassone', here, as only in Iceland, you are captivated by the charm that a dark and deep atrium emanates. . Equipped with helmets and torches we visit the lava tunnel.
III Step: We continue in the direction of Rifugio Sapienza (altitude 2000 m above sea level), here the landscape becomes lunar and the green woods of Etna leave room for the recent black castings (of 2002) and the lava desert. We make a first stop on the lava sand, where you can observe the latest plant manifestations such as the Astracalus and the Saponaria (succulents), and walk on the recent volcanic ash. In a few minutes we reach the Crateri Silvestri, a buttonhole formed by 5 mouths eruptive born in 1892, we make the perimeter of the craters from where you can admire the wonderful view of Catania and its gulf from 2000 m altitude s.l.m. Duration of trekking: 40 minutes, level: medium / easy.
