ETNA south Barbagal craters

Unique and fascinating excursion to the highest and most active volcano in Europe, which takes place on the southern side of Etna. This site is in continuous evolution, marked by the profound changes impressed by the permanent volcanic activity.

A beautiful and interesting excursion that is generally made when the activity of the volcano does not allow to reach the summit area. Besides reaching the maximum altitude allowed under current laws, we will visit the Barbagallo craters, theatre of the imposing 2002/03 eruption, a beautiful channel/cave of lava flow, and finish our day by admiring the fascinating Valle del Bove.

Suggested dates: Escursione programmabile anche nei periodi invernali quando l'Etna si veste di bianco. Il vulcano innevato rende i paesaggi e l'escursione ancora più interessante. Nel caso specifico l'utilizzo di ramponcini rende ancor più sicura la progressione.
