Etna helicopter tour adds a new dimension to your "volcano" experience.
the helicopter flight you have a complete view of the real dimensions of the
volcano Etna and it will be possible to see attractions otherwise invisible from
the ground or difficult to reach.
One of the features that make Etna and the
Aeolian island volcanoes so spectacular is the ever-changing and breathtaking vistas.
Landscapes range from lush pine and birch wood to dry arid black lava deserts to
snow topped mountains to wonderful mediterranean sea. Sicily is a feast
for the eyes. Full of greens, blues, and wonders that make for wonderful
memories. One of the best ways to enjoy the natural wonders of Sicily and its
volcanoes to the fullest is with a helicopter ride. Every island offers them and
every island has something special to offer. A helicopter trip of the mount
Etna, Stromboli Island or Vulcano Island will include a bird's eye view of the
craters. Every trip offers views that will stay in your heart forever. The
sweeping views of Bove Valley (Huge Etna's caldera) are truly spectacular.
Be aware that helicopter company may cancel trips due to
weather, so it is best to book for an early departure, so you can make or pursue
alternate plans early in the day in case of a cancellation. There is no need to
take the longer tours, it is overkill and the extra money is best spent on other
VolcanoTrek activities. And, finally, don't forget to bring your camera. Even if
you are not the picture taking type, buy a disposable and snap away. This
experience will last a lifetime!
