Etna Excursions: Trekking to Discover the Valle del Bove and Volcanic Wonders

Exursions Program

  • Medium difficulty trekking, elevation gain +200 meters
  • Panoramic views of the Valle del Bove, ancient lavas, supra-Mediterranean vegetation, volcanic cave
  • Exploration of the Grotta Cassone
  • Tasting of local products in Zafferana Etnea

Discover the wonders of Etna with an unforgettable excursion that will lead you through breathtaking landscapes and hidden natural gems. Our trekking-optimized itinerary will guide you to the discovery of the Valle del Bove, a spectacular caldera formed about 65,000 years ago following the collapse of an ancient volcano. This path offers you a unique and extraordinary perspective on the valley, granting you panoramic views of unparalleled beauty.

Along an accessible trail, you will find yourself traversing gentle slopes that reveal the picturesque Silvestri craters and the eruptive vents of 2001, heading towards the peak of the Schiena dell’Asino. Initially challenging, the path gradually becomes less steep, eventually leading you to a flat section. This unique itinerary offers the chance to admire the Valle del Bove from an exceptional viewpoint, at about 2050 meters above sea level.

During your excursion on Etna, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Grotta Cassone, a fascinating example of a cave formed by lava flow, easily accessible and characterized by a spacious elliptical gallery adorned with classic formations of lava tubes.

At the end of the trek, we will take you to discover another gem of the volcano: a volcanic cave of exceptional interest. Equipped with protective cap, helmet, and lamp, you will explore this unique environment in total safety.

The day will conclude with a visit to Zafferana Etnea, where you will have the opportunity to taste the prestigious DOC wines of Etna – red, rosé, and white – accompanied by bread and olive oil. Finally, we will delight you with a tasting of honey and honey creams, products that make Zafferana famous as the city of honey.

Join us for a trekking experience on Etna full of adventure, culture, and authentic flavors, optimized to offer you the best of excursions in this paradisiacal corner of Sicily.
