Description

We meet volcanic caves, gorgeous woods, and old and new lava flows facing the blue Ionian Sea sparkling below. A stroll on the northern slope of the volcano is a thrilling experience and you can get much more from it taking advantage of the knowledge of our qualified guide. Later, you enjoy a guided wine tasting, matched with home-made appetizers and durum wheat bread, at a beautiful example of Etna's high-altitude vineyards.

Going up to Mount Etna along the typical hill roads bordered by dry-stone walls, we drive through the villages on the side of the volcano; each narrow, lava-paved street opens to small sunny squares where churches and Baroque style palaces made of lava stand. As we pass the lower slopes, settlements become less frequent and the differences in the terrain may well surprise you. From the man-made terrace systems comprised of vineyards, citrus groves and fruit trees and down the road bordered by the dense woods of chestnuts, beech, oaks, poplars, pines and birch, we travel along the lunar landscape of lava fields formed by the old and recent eruptions. Up ahead, lava from the 2002 eruption pouring down has lacerated the green mantel of pine woods, revealing centuries-old trees burnt like twigs. After the volcano exploration, we head to a beautiful example of Etna's vineyards for a pleasant tasting of ETNA DOC label wines (quality controlled) matched with home-made appetizers and durum wheat bread. The vineyard lies on a sunny and airy terrace facing a breathtaking landscape. Early in the afternoon you will be transferred back to your hotel.
