Details

From the Rifugio Sapienza parking area we will take the cable car and the UNIMOG 4X4 of the Funivie dell’Etna to rapidly ascend till 2.900 m.a.s.l. from where our  trekking to the summit of Mt Etna will begin.

Once at the Torre del Filosofo area we will be gaining about 400 m uphill to get to the crater rim, in approximately 1h30min.  

According to meteorological and volcanic conditions, the Guide will decide the preferred path to lead you down for a total drop of 800m, where you will be able to admire the Barbagallo craters, listen to their recent history, admire the Valle del Bove slowly arriving to the cable car station to get back down to the parking area. A nice walk down hill on different lava soils.
