Linguaglossa: Guided Mt. Etna North and 2002 Craters Hike

1. Linguaglossa: Guided Mt. Etna North and 2002 Craters Hike

Discover the northern side of Etna on a full-day trip from Linguaglossa. Marvel at panoramic views from the Pizzi Deneri Volcanic Observatory, drive up the volcano past volcanic cones, and hike along the lunar-like landscape of Mt. Etna. Hop into a bus equipped to handle the rough mountain terrain and head up Mt. Etna. Follow the Northeast Rift, passing eruptive cones from past and recent eruptions. At 2,900 meters, step out of your bus and into the desolate landscapes of the Piano delle Concazze. Begin your hike and learn about the eruptions that have scarred the area from your guide. Trek for about 10 minutes to reach Valle del Bove and the summit craters. While standing above these deep craters, hear about the 2002 eruption and its devastating impact on the surrounding towns. Continue to the Volcanic Observatory at Pizzi Deneri. See the world from above and spot the Aeolian islands, the coast of Taormina, the coast of Catania, the coast of Calabria, and the Stromboli if weather permits before returning to the foot of the volcano in your bus.
