After using the cable car up to an altitude of 2500 meters and the 4 × 4 jeeps up to 2900 meters, the trek starts along the path that leads from Torre del Filosofo to the summit craters of Etna, through the lava fields emitted by the recent activities of the Crater of South East.
After traveling a little over 2 km, you will reach the summit craters, where you can begin to admire the majesty of the central crater of the volcano.
The route will continue along the crater wall before starting the descent on soft slag and volcanic ash passing from Piano delle Concazze 2750 mt. at the base of the Volcanological Observatory and then continue into one of the sandy gullies that make up the north-eastern slope of the volcano, surrounded by endemic plants and seasonal streams before reaching the descent track and the beech forest just above Piano Provenzana, point of arrival of our excursion.
Transfer service to return to Sapienza after the excursion is the responsibility of the participants.
