Etna and Alcantara Gorges is a full day excursion that includes an easy trekking on Etna and a walk through the Alcatara Gorges; it is available from April to Novemeber and it depends on the weather conditions
The tour will start from your accommodation in Catania (free transfer)
We’ll start our tour by going to the Alcantara Gorges: our guide will lead you in a walk through this majestic phenomenon that was formed due to the erosion of the homonym river of an old lava flow.
The guide will give you some free time to spare and get changed into dry clothes before continuing with the tour
We’ll then go to Etna: along the road that will take us up to 2000mt, our guide will tell you everything about the origins and the developments of the highest volcano in Europe paired with information on its characteristic fllora and fauna
After reaching 2000mt, we’ll start our walk through old and recent lava flows that will give us the opportunity of admiring various exinct craters. The enchanting landscape and the suggestive lunar scenery will make you feel like you’re on the moon!
At lunch time, we’ll take you to a typical Rifugio on Etna to have lunch with typical Sicilian products
After a little break, we’ll resume the excursion with the visit inside an old lava flow cave with torches and helmets.
