Tour description

With this half-day excursion, Dream Island will take you to the highest reachable point of Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, in off-road. In Suv or Minivan (up to eight people) we will reach Rifugio Sapienza, the starting point of the cable car. From there we will arrive at an altitude of 2500 meters by cable car. Then we will proceed up to the Torre del Filosofo – the base of the summit craters at an altitude of 3000 meters – with Unimog 4 × 4 off-road vehicles, from where you can admire the Valle del Bove and the splendid Ionian coast. With an expert alpine/volcanological guide you will walk around the still smoking craters of the 2002-2003 eruption.
