About
Hike the Etna Volcano to get to the summit craters of Mount Etna at about 3340 meters! You will be hiking in full safety with a certified alpine and volcano guide, with whom you will marvel at the beauty and wonder of the highest active volcano in Europe, at 3.340 meters above the sea level. Departing from Sapienza Refuge, in Nicolosi, the Cable Car will take you up to 2.504 meters. From this point you will be riding a 4x4 Jeep up to 2900 meters. Then you will hike to reach the altitude of 3.340 m. Carried out a long pause near the craters, you will descend in direction of 2002 craters and before heading up again in cable car to the departure point in Refuge Sapienza. The amount of Hiking involved is 1,5 hour uphill and 2 hours downhill. The tour can be cancelled in case of adverse weather conditions. The itinerary up to 3340 m can be slightly modified depending on the volcanic activities, for security reasons.

Wooow !!
L'Etna ed i suoi spettacolari paesaggi vulcanici sono una tappa obbligatoria per chi si trova in zona. Con un gruppo di amiche abbiamo prenotato l'escursione fino ai crateri sommitali con Sicilying. Consigliatissimo...Faticoso un pò, ma ne è valsa la pena. Un ringraziamento particolare alla nostra guida, Edoardo: preparato, disponibile, appassionato e gentile; grazie anche alle altre guide di questa esperienza, con le quali c'era condivisione e spirito di gruppo,e a tutta l'organizzazione!

Belle excursion, tenue chaude obligée et gants recommandés car le vent y est très fort.
Descentes raides pour finir mais le guide donne une allure calme.
A faire absolument pour les vues inoubliables
