Program & Information

Useful indications to the participants

Departure from the Sapienza Refuge Square at our mobile office. After a short briefing the excursion leading us up to the height of 3330masl will start. With Etna cable car we will quickly gain height until 2500masl and after, with special 4wd buses, we will go up to the height of 2900masl, near Torre del Filosofo (Tower of the Philosopher). During the ascent path of about 2 hours we will stop for 2-3 intermediate pauses to enjoy the landscape. We will walk through moonscape lava fields which will lead us right under summit craters. With the last ascent trail we will reach the top of Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, where we can enjoy the peculiarity characterizing the summit area. We will go back walking for about 2 hours to reach the upper cable car station.
