Etna Summit Craters Excursion

Etna is the active volcano on the island of Sicily, known for its eruptions and the breathtaking landscapes it offers.

The summit craters are the central area of ​​volcanic activity, through them the persistent fumarolic activity of Etna takes place and at more or less regular time intervals they are the site of explosive events of various types and energies such as: Strombolian activity, lava fountains , ejection of conduit obstructions, phreatic activities, etc., which continuously modify the morphology and height of the volcano. There are currently four summit craters, the Voragine and the Bocca Nuova, the North-East Crater (existing since 1911 and is currently the highest point of Etna 3330 m), and finally the South-East Crater.
