This long weekend trek begins on the northern slopes of Mount Etna.
Standing at about 3,350m, this is the largest volcano in Europe. Your
first night will be spent in a mountain hut at Piano Provenzana
(1,800m), followed by two days' trekking (covering 35kms) across the
Pista alto montana, the circular path around Mt. Etna.
The Pista alto montana is only the warm up for your main challenge.
After this circular trek you will take a cable link from 1,800m to
2,500m and continue to trek to the top of Mt. Etna. Your 8 hour trek
will be accompanied by a specialist volcanologist guide who will inform
you about Etna’s historic activity.
On summiting you receive your reward; a complete view of Mt. Etna
with an amazing panorama of the four craters at the top and incredible
views of the Eastern coast of Sicily.
You will descend to Sicily’s capital city, Catania where you will enjoy a fine celebratory dinner.
