The trail to the summit craters of our “gentle giant”, is perhaps one of the top excursions that enthusiasts of trekking on Etna long to do. The beauty of this spectacular canvas painted by the force of nature is breathtaking and leaves the lucky trekkers who manage to see it with a memory that lasts forever. The feeling of being about to touch the point where the driving forces of Mount Etna meet: the destructive one, which the locals have learned to live with for centuries, and the creative one, which enriches us with spectacular natural performances, such as Strombolian eruptions, lava flows and all the other vibrant, pulsating expressions of nature provided by the volcano.

The meeting point is at Piano Provenzana-North Etna (1800 m.) where, after reporting for the trek and having your booking checked, our adventure will begin.
Boarding 4WD vehicles. Taking an unsurfaced road, one of the highest tracks in Europe, we reach an altitude of 2800 m. Here is the departure point for our trek to visit the Summit Craters (Central Crater – Bocca Nuova) at an approximate altitude of 3300 m. After an extensive tour, we begin the descent, along the North East Crater heading towards the spectacular Valle del Leone, then eventually reaching the Pizzi Deneri Volcanological Observatory (2800Mt) where we will find the means of transport for the trip back to Piano Provenzana.
