We will begin the excursion with a taste experience, at a renowned bar of Sant'Alfio, where it is possible to taste sweets, that are very energetic delicacies made with hazelnuts or walnuts cultivated here. The stop will allow us to deepen the strong link between faith and Etna, that unites the dramatic stories of all the foothills villages. In particular, we will relive, experientially, the casting of 1928 and the great miracle occurred at the church in Contrada "Magazzeni". We will then proceed, with the car, to the starting point of the trek, until we reach Piano Provenzana, a ski area at Etna Nord. Here, rented snowshoes, we will begin the trek to the buttons of 2002, walking on the crater rim of the downstream crater. From here we will move in the direction of the most elegant beech forest of Etna, which covered in snow makes the landscape unique. From up here, the landscape opens on the Ionian coast, on Taormina and on the Peloritani and up to the Aeolian Islands.
