Etna Hiking 3000 meters
Etna Hiking 3000 meters is one of the most exciting experience to be done on Etna. Look, hear, feel, breathe, “taste” Etna in it’s true essence reaching the highest craters, the most active over the last thousands of years.
Form quota 1900 meters above sea level, you will get aboard of Etna’s Cable car to reach quota 2500 meters.
Once on the arrival station, you will be left breathless looking at the landscape: a clear view of all the Sicilian eastern coast line and during good days also Calabria.
