If you choose our Etna and Alcantara full day jeep excursion, your experience to discover the volcano starts in the morning when we pick you up at your accommodation and it will carry on from the slopes of Mt. Etna crossing old villages full of history and traditions, along off-road trails in the woods of the Etna Park where flora and fauna live in a perfect balance. During the excursion we will walk on the edge of extinct craters to better understand the structure of the volcano and the eruption lifecycle. We will explore a cave shaped by a lava flow safely equipped with ropes, flashlights and helmets and aboard of our 4WD vehicles we will then climb up old lava flows in order to reach the magnificent site of the Valle del Bove to enjoy an amazing panorama!
Lunch will be arranged at a farmhouse, to taste typical Sicilian specialties (full menu, including drinks), fresh, local and seasonal products accompanied by the excellent Etna DOC wines. Upon request, menu could be revisited ad hoc for our vegetarian and vegan guests or according to any special requirement.
After lunch your adventure will carry on with the visit of a Cuba, an early Christian chapel from the Byzantine period, in the area of Castiglione di Sicilia, continuing to the Alcantara Gorges a natural lava stone canyon formed thousands of years ago, shaped by the cold waters of River Alcantara. A unique panorama to frame your photos. Adventure, knowledge and nature! Fun is guaranteed for the whole family, kids and friends.
