Inspection to the summit craters

Autore: in News | June 19, 2017

An inspection to the summit craters by some vulcanologic guides of the “Group Guide Alpine Etna Sud”.

After 51 days of the last eruption on 26th/27th April, the access to the summit craters is still forbidden. We remind you that the fruition of the volcano is controlled by syndical ordinances.

The ordinance in effect, at the moment, is the n. 18 – 2th May 2017 establishes:

  1. Free access to the Volcano Etna up to of height 2700 mt;
  2. From to 2700 m of height to 2920 m (torre del filosofo) the access is allowed only if accompanied by either Alpine guides or vulcanologic guide;
  3. Over the height 2920 meters is absolutely forbidden;

We kindly recommend all excursionists to distrust anyone who offers excursions over 2920 m of height, since you risk to commit a crime in accordance with art. n° 650 of the penal code.

We are waiting for a new ordinance of fruition, follow us for further updates here or on the facebook page.
