What they say about us
Quest’estate ho vissuto insieme alle mie sorelle l’esperienza del Bivacco in quota con Ashara Volcanological Guides…
Deux jours de trekking du versant sud au versant nord en passant par les cratères sommitaux à 3´330 m et une nuit dans un refuge sommaire à 2’800 m nous ont permis de découvrir l’Etna en dehors des sentiers touristiques accompagnés par un guide vulcanologue très professionnel qui nous transmis son amour de ce volcan unique avec passion, un grand merci à Massimo.
