The excursion starts from Piano Provenzana (1,800 meters
above sea level).
We will cross an area of luxuriant vegetation, where we can
admire many endemic species of Mount Etna’s flora. Then we will visit the craters that in 2002 generated the lava flows that destroyed the Piano Provenzana tourist resort. From here we can admire the Ragabo pine grove, Giardini Naxos and Taormina.
The 2002 eruption was the most powerful in recent years to affect the north side of Etna.
This eruption generated lava flows, explosions, and emissions of pyroclastic material (ash, lapilli, and volcanic bombs).
Note: We will also visit a Volcanic Cave. (Helmets will be provided by the guide.)
