Valle del Bove
Nature and Wine
It is a wide depression formed
around 9 000 years ago from the collapse of a part of the
Eastern side of the volcano. We will go all the way up to
the side of this huge valley to admire it in all its splendor
by off-road vehicle or trekking.
Eccentric and lateral craters
- lava flows
The Etna counts more than 300
side craters generated by lateral or eccentric channels. We
will walk through the woods and old lava flows to discover
unique territories and suggestive lunar landscapes.
We will visit the Alcantara river
and its spectacular basaltic columns created from lava flows
coming from the Northern side of the volcano that invaded
the riverbed in prehistoric times.
Nature and Wine
In the territory of the Park
you can find more than 200 lava caves which are generated
from complex phenomena that regulate the lava flows and their
cooling. They were already known in antiquity and used by
man as sacred sites and for burial use, as a shelter or a
place intended to store snow. We will guide you, with the
necessary equipment, inside one of these caves to take a look
into the volcano's heart.
Cellar tours and wine tasting
We will visit the cellars located
on the slopes of the volcano where we will taste Etna D.O.C.
wines and local products of the area.
Etnea and organic honey from Etna
We will discover Zafferana Etnea
that is located on the slopes of Mount Etna and we will visit
the place where the lava stopped not far from the town in
1992. Then we will continue with the last step of our trip:
tasting of the famous honey from Zafferana and delicious honey
