Escursions to the Caves of Etna
The length of the caves is extremely variable (from a few tens of meters up to over one km). Inside the caves it is possible to observe phenomena such as the “dog teeth”, or the lava rolls that form along the walls, formed due to the high temperatures of the lava.
The first cave that will be reached is the “Grotta dei Lamponi”.
After the visit of the cave we continue and during the journey spectacular volcanic morphologies of slabs and ropes, typically called pahoehoe from the Hawaiian and fascinating globular forms will be visible so as to be called “Monti dei Morti”. After about an hour of walking you will reach the “Grotta del Gelo”
