Program & Information

Useful indications to the participants

Departure from our mobile office in Rifugio Sapienza. After a short briefing, the excursion leading us inside the great Bove Valley will start. With Etna cable car we will quickly gain height up to 2500masl. After the visit of the eruptive area of 2001, we will start the descent towards the bottom of the Valley, through the funny Montagnola rill, characterized of very fine ashes. We will walk along the 1991-1993 lavas towards East up to Valle del Tripodo (Tripodo Valley). The path leading us to Serra del Salifizio crosses a very specatcular beech tree forest. From here we will start the descent towards Piano del Vescovo, end point of the excursion.

Excursion is also possible for children aged ten and up.
