Excursion 3000 mt
Excursion Etna 3.000 mt
A valid alternative to the summit craters excursion is the 3,000 m excursion. You go up by cable car up to 2,500 meters, continuing by jeep up to the philosopher’s tower (Torre del Filosofo) at 2,920 meters. From here begins the walk. It will be possible to observe the summit craters, then we will walk on a lateral crater (Barbagallo at 3000 meters). Go down from the side of this crater you will reach the inside of a lava channel and then we will visit an effusive vent until you reach to the edge from where you can admire the Bove valley (Valle del Bove). From here you go down to the starting point, 1,900 meters, from an ash channel, admiring, on fine days, a view that sweeps from the Ionian Riviera to the interior of Sicily.
The necessary equipment is provided by the guides (jacket, socks, shoes, helmets).
