    Etna High Altitude Excursion 


    Our Etna High Altitude Excursion consists:
    First, a bus will depart at 2pm from the conference venue and will take you to an altitude of 1900 meters. Once there, the Etna cable car will take you to 2500 m altitude. Finally 4×4 off-road buses will drive you up to about 3000 m, to a place called “Torre del Filosofo”.
    You will have the opportunity to have a walk on the edge of the “Crateri Barbagallo”, reaching the base of the still active South-Eastern Crater, with the assistance of a Volcanological Alpine Guide (about 40 minutes).
    At the end of the walk, the off-road bus will take you back to the arrival station of the cable car at 2500 m and you will arrive to the departure station at 1900 m in about 15 minutes. The total duration of this excursion is about 2 hours.

    In case of eruptive activity of the crater or alert, for safety reasons, the excursion will stop at the “Belvedere” where you will take a walk of about 30 minutes to the “Crateri Sommitali” and you can look out over the “Valle del Bove”, assisted by the Volcanological Alpine Guides.
    The off-road vehicle will continue its journey up to the Crater emerged during the eruption of year 2001 where, always accompanied by an Alpine Guide, you will make a trekking walk of about 30 minutes to get to the top of the crater. Finally, you will take the cable car back to 1900 m (in this case the total duration will be around 2 and a half hours).

    A bus will take you back to Catania Centre.
