THE TOUR INCLUDES:

- Pick up from and drop off at your accomodation  free of charge (you do not pay it).

- Refreshing  walk and swimming  in the cold water of Alcantara river admiring its spectacular gorges (ticket included),

- Small walk in the Alcantara river  visiting its small waterfalls and lakes.

- Visiting of the 2002 lava flow, last big eruption on Etna which destroyed the touristical village of Piano Provenzana.

- Exploration of an interesting and nice volcanic cave.


DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR:

After the pick up from your accommodation, we move to the legendary waters of the Alcantara, one of the few example in the world of a river passing through a lava flow. We explore its famous gorges with unique lavic formations meanwhile enjoying a refreshing swim in the clean water. Soon later we move to some small waterfalls and lakes which create a fairytale landscape.

In the afternoon we move to Etna, which with the same ingredients (lava flows, volcanic stones, lavic sand), develops a different but equally wonderful landscape. We visit several flank craters from an ancient eruption walking in a volcanic path passing through rich vegetation and desolated lava fields. The lava flow from 2002, last big eruption will be also visited during the tour. Finally, we visit a small but really nice volcanic cave which was used in the past of some interesting activities.
