Further information

There are few times when Etna offers the opportunity to admire all its power and its primordial charm, and this is the perfect time to take this extraordinary, unique, exceptional opportunity. The area where the current Strombolian activity is taking place, is perfect to give everyone a chance to see this pure manifestation of the power of nature.

The excursion starts in the afternoon and goes on until sunset, the best time to look the explosions inside the crater, and the magma sliding down from its base.

We will meet at the Etna Nord station (6:00pm); from here, after an opening briefing, you get on board special latest generation 4x4 vehicles (30 seats), to face the ascent from 1,800 meters up to 2,850 meters above see level. We are in Piano delle Concazze between the Volcanological Observatory, the Valle del Leone and the majestic summit craters, surrounded by a lunar landscape of black volcanic ash and pyroclastic debris. This is the point from which we will enjoy the show of the South-East crater. Waiting for the dark the guide will give insight about eruption and the surrounding landscape. Just the sun goes down, the darkness will color the explosions and lava by its typical fiery red color, while the roar of the volcano will awaken in you a sense of fear and grandeur. Around 8.30pm we get back on board the vehicles to face the descent. Expert drivers will take you back to the departure station. Expected return 9:00pm.
