We will visit, at a slow pace, the 2002 eruption theater, from the ruins of the "Le Betulle" hotel, to the "Bottoniera" craters that arose, walking right on the edge of one of these lateral eruption craters. After a tasting of typical products, we will move to visit, equipped with a helmet and a front torch, a "flowing lava cave", an ancient snowfield of Etna, where in the summer the snow was kept for the storage of food and the preparation of the sicilian “granita” breakfast.
Trekking Etna-High-Cave - (Medium level - length 6 hours)
