Etna 2900

Updated: Mar 23

Etna 2900 is aimed at those who want to discover the highest parts of the volcano, without having to work so hard and in conditions of maximum safety.


- What does the service involve?



Departure is from Milo or from a place to be agreed upon. In a comfortable 9-seater minibus, you will be driven to the Piano Provenzana ski resort. From here, with the aid of efficient 4x4 vehicles, you will reach the Volcanology Observatory located at 2900 metres.


Accompanied by your Volcanology Guide and your Nature Guide, you will make an easy excursion to an altitude of 2900 m in order to admire the summit craters in safe conditions, and then with the help of the 4x4 vehicle you will make another excursion to an altitude of 2000 m. A visit to the side crater of Monte Nero is planned. The 4x4 return to Piano Provenzana will be made at the end of the hike.




Mount Etna is an active volcano, the highest of the European volcanoes, and since 1987 it has become a Regional Park. In addition, since 2013 it has been recognised by Unesco as a World Heritage Site and has become one of the four Italian Unesco sites. There are currently three summit craters and about 250 side craters on the summit.



On the way back, depending on safety conditions and the opinion of your Nature Guide, it will be possible to stop and visit a volcanic cave. You will then be accompanied by a comfortable minibus to the agreed location.



"All that remains is to try this wonderful high-altitude experience, always in safety and accompanied by your trusted guides".
