Description

Enjoy panoramic views of the Etna volcanic national park at sunset!

You will be picked up from your hotel and head to an organic farm to taste honey, wine, olive oil, and other Sicilian products. 

You'll then visit a volcanic cave with your guide. Equipped with a helmet and torch, it’s time for your introduction to caving. 

After exploring the depths of the volcano, you'll head to the Sapienza Refuge at an altitude of 1920 metres. Set off on a lovely hike through the volcanic park of Mount Etna to finally reach 2000 metres. See the lava flows from old eruptions and dormant craters. 

You'll also get to watch a magnificent sunset over Mount Etna volcanic park. 

You'll then be driven back to your hotel.
