Thanks to it’s long exposure to sun, Etna north is the greenest and most blooming slope of Etna, characterized by a thick birch wood (Betula aetnensis), these trees have a silver white log which creates a magical atmosphere.
Among the sights of this area, the most important dates back 2002. An eruption that had it’s main stream right on Piano Provenzana (a historical lodge), it covered also the main (and only) road used to reach Etna North Ski lifts. Lasted for several months, this eruption gave birth to 25 small craters, aligned ( according to researchers ) to the characteristic Etna Button line craters. The eruption had a length of 2 km, while it’s altitude varied from 1900 meters above the sea level to nearly 2500 m.a.s.l.
The excursions we organize on this slope of Etna vary depending on seasons, also considering snow during winter seasons.
