Etna Volcanic Adventure

Climb to the summit the highest active volcano in Europe

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.

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects, like Janine.
