Inside the Volcano: the experience of the Etna lava Caves

Pick-up at the hotel and meeting with the escort. Departure for the highest active volcano in Europe, inside the Etna Park, established in 1987 to safeguard the extraordinary variety of landscapes: breathtaking views, lava deserts and alpine forests. Use of closed shoes and jacket is recommended. With the help of our guide you will experience the lava flow cave. These caves are generated during eruptions due to the large quantities of lava that are jammed underground, forming underground rivers of incandescent lava (about 1100 degrees). At the end of the eruption, when the thrust of the lava is exhausted, the perfectly smooth and practicable "shell" of cavities of considerable size and length remains. Safety helmets and torches will be provided. Stop for lunch (not included). Back to the hotel in the afternoon.
