Etna sunset tour is an afternoon exploration of mount Etna volcano including a wonderful quite easy walk along natural trails surrounded by extinct craters, caves, lava flows and great landscapes on the volcano slopes tinged with the warm colors of the sunset. A good way to enjoy the volcano during the cooler hours of the day. An occasion to have nice and interesting talks with one of us about the mount Etna to better understand its structure and related fenomena. Fun and education is guaranteed for all you, families and kids included. Just try it.

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 .
