Etna 3000 excursion proposed by us is an integration to the basic tourist service offered by the Etna cableway that allows you to easily ascend from 2000 meters to the base of the summit craters of the Etna volcano. This usually includes a tour of about 2 hours in total, including the ascent with cable car and jeep up to an altitude of 2900 meters in the Torre del Filosofo refuge (now covered by recent lava flows) and here a walk of about 25 minutes with the assistance of the alpine guides, mandatory for security reasons. Our tour lasts a total of 5 hours and offers several additional services. The main plus is the reserved naturalistic guide to our guests already from the meeting point, which will offer many more explanations during the course of the excursion. The excursion also includes a visit to a volcanic cave with lights and speleologist helmets (stage not included in the standard cable car ticket). Etna 3000 is a tour suitable for everyone (excluding heart patients and babies due to the altitude). For those who love walking, however, we recommend taking into consideration the High Altitude Trek excursion , a similar landscape itinerary.
NOTE: Due to sudden changes in the volcanic risk on Etna and consequent prohibitions or even to the variability of weather conditions, the tour may undergo unpredictable and independent changes from our organization.
