A day to Mount “Etna,” or “a muntagna“ in Sicilian language, a concentration of fantastic imagery, a priceless
heritage of myths and stories, indecipherable cultural plot. Within its crater the deepest reality of the universe
pulsates: obscure and elusive presences, underground divinities, gigantic monsters, magicians, fairies, saints
Departure on comfortable Land Rover Defender, with professional drivers and the naturalistic guide to Mount
Etna, declared UNESCO WORD HERITAGE. It’s a real giant of lava, the highest active vulcano in Europe with its
3.350 mt height. The off road on Mount Etna makes you discover the best corners that can be reached only by
jeeps (up a 2.000 mt ca.), as the professional drivers will drive , crossing typical Etna villages, on unpaved path
and directly on hardened lava flows of the past decades. Breathtaking views on the valley of the ox (Valle del
Bove) and on the active craters, walks through the woods and down into caves formed by lava flows after the lava
has cooled down, trekking on the Sartorius Mountains will be the goal of the day!
You will have also a chance to taste the real Sicilian Granita, thank to our maestro gelataio (master ice cream
maker) . He will show how to prepare the special Sicilian granita with the traditional method, right on Mount Etna!
Continue towards the sea, to small fishing village of Acitrezza, where the first volcanic activities took place. Enjoy
a boat tour to see form close the Faraglioni, born from the primordial underwater activity of Etna.
