Taking you 1,800m above sea level, the Enjoy Etna excursion allows you to experience the north side of the volcano. Your exciting off-road vehicle follows the lava flow of 1928 up to the Sartorius craters. Due to its uneven terrain, the roads here are only accessible by off-road vehicles – it all adds to the experience! There is the opportunity to hop off and walk through fascinating lava fields. Your guide will tell you interesting facts about the volcano, including what life is like next to an active volcano. After a quick rest stop, you’ll make the short walk to a hidden lava cave – don’t forget your camera.
Finish off your day in the best possible way at Gambino winery, where you can taste the local wines and find out how they are produced in this volcanic area.
