Tour Etna & Alcantara

The Etna and Alcantara tour allows you to visit some of the most suggestive places of the volcano and in the same day the famous Alcantara Gorges. The excursion takes place using 4 × 4 vehicles for moving between the stages. In the morning you will visit the volcano and some of the most interesting landscape places, including the secondary button craters that you will reach with an easy trek of about 1 hour, the most recent lava flows and you cannot miss, weather permitting, a visit to the immense Valle del Bove.  You will also explore a lava flow cave equipped with helmet and speleologist lights. After lunch (included in the package) we will move to the magnificent site of the Alcantara Gorges, a canyon of volcanic origin that developed thousands of years ago.
