Etna Tour from Syracuse

Available tomorrow

Etna Tour from Syracuse

star-5
The highest volcano in Europe and among the most active in the world, with its 3327 meters of height, dominates the entire region with its bulk. Its spectacular eruptions and the consequent fiery lava flows have always been a source of attraction for visitors from all over the world. In June 2013, UNESCO inscribed Etna in the World Heritage List, as a Natural Heritage Site, due to its geological features. Appreciated in the summer by hikers for visiting the active craters, in winter the volcano offers the surprising possibility of practicing, just a few kilometers from the sea, even snow sports. The Tour will not fail to surprise you: a visit to a cave of lavic origin, the trekking on the Silvestri Craters or the "Etna at high altitude" option, the tasting of honey and typical local products in Zafferana.
