This excursion will take you all the way up to the summit, at the base of the main craters, in a majestic volcanic desert where silence fills up the space around you.

We will visit the Crateri Barbagallo originated during the big eruption of 2002. At this altitude you will be able to enjoy the fascinating landscape that only Mount Etna can offer.

How to reach the summit

On foot

We will start our hike at the drop off of the cablecar (2.500 m) and reach the Belvedere area, which overlooks the Valle del Bove (2.760 m). Here we will be able to visit the lava flow from the 2017 eruption. We will continue towards Monte Escrivá, a dead crater formed during the 2001 eruption. The entire hike is approximately 4.5 km roundtrip.

By Unimog

Starting at the drop off of the cable way (2.500 m) we will reach Torre del Filosofo (2.920 m) by Unimog and visit the base of the craters accompanied by a volcanologist guide.

By snowcat

Starting at the drop-off of the cable way (2.500 m), we will reach Torre del Filosofo (2.920 m) by snowcat  and visit the base of the craters accompanied by a volcanologist guide.
