Description

Our excursion will visit the fascinating Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. With breathtaking views, its natural environment has been forged by the lava released from the volcano over the millennia.



What we will see
  • Picturesque villages on the slopes of Mount Etna
  • Dagala
  • Monti Sartorius


What we will do
  • We will set off from the port by off-road, passing through several small and picturesque villages at the foot of Mount Etna, such as Santa Venerina, Milo and Fornazzo, defying the wrath of the nearby mouth of the volcano.
  • We will begin our exciting off-road adventure near Dagala on a dirt track specially created by the Forest Service, offering scenic viewsof the surrounding slopes and lava formations.
  • We will then set off on foot from the  off-road for a magnificent lookout point from which we can admire the spectacular panorama. This really is a unique photo opportunity!
  • We will finally continue on to the extinct craters of the Monti Sartorius, formed by the impressive lava flow created in 1865, characterised by the typical lines of eruptive cones known as 'buttonholes'. We will follow a natural path of exceptional botanical and geological interest, allowing us to appreciate the unusual habitat of an active volcano.
  • Once our last photos have been taken, we will set off for the return trip to Catania.
