  • Descrizione

    Reaching the top of a volcano, feeling its breath, its rumblings, is undoubtedly an indescribable emotion. 
From the ETNA Nord - PIANO PROVENZANA slope the ascent can be carried out in two types:

    CLASSICAL EXCURSION: Ascent and descent by 4x4 vehicles Departure from Piano Provenzana (Etna North, altitude 1800 m), ascent with 4x4 vehicles up to 2900 m altitude. From here continue on foot. Visit of the Central Crater and Bocca Nuova. Later I returned to the place where the 4x4 bus had left the group and returned with the 4x4 vehicle to Piano Provenzana. The feasibility of the excursion depends on the volcanic activity present and on the weather conditions. 

    EXCURSION IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN TO CARDIOPATHICS, ASMATIC OR HYPERTHESIS.
