ETNA 4X4 Tour Full Day Itinerary

Schiena Dell'Asino
Driving on the way back

Etna 4X4 tour is an exclusive full day tour to explore the Mount Etna volcano. The excursion will start from your accomodation or from a pick up place. Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides will show the Etna landscapes and wildness, endemic flora and geological features explaining the surrounding fragile environment. Having care of it, we'll take you following off-road itineraries through Etna's lava fields always driving on tracks,  exploring caves, and walking to reach  the "Valle del Bove" Caldera's rim, immense theatre of some major last eruptions.
After the visit of a lava tunnel and having had a pic-nic lunch with sicilian food and wine, VolcanoTrek's guides will drive you up to 2000 meters, from where we will walk across the lava flows of the 2002 eruption up to the 2002 eruptive fissure (2 hours long roundtrip walk )* to experience the incredible power of nature that surrounds you. 
* On request, it's possible a shorter walk .
