OVERVIEW

Discovering Etna form a different point of view.

For us Sicilians, Mount Etna represents a great Mother and like all Mothers it nourishes us with the various productions of fruit and vegetables of the highest quality. From time to time it punishes us with eruptions and provides us with magical places to show to our fellow travellers.

This is exactly what we offer you! When booking one of these experiences we will take you on an Electric mountain bike to Mount Etna. You will discover the perfect view points away from your average tourist traps, allowing you to fully immerse among mountain retreats, lava caves, nature, historic and recent lava flows.

It is a must that we stop to admire this! We will be submerged in the area of Ragabo pinewood forest and go through Piano Pernicana until we arrive at one of the most destructive lava flows of the last 25 years on the Northern side of the volcano (year 2002). The next point of interest on our Etna tour is an amazing lava flowing cave named after the mountain in which it is located - Cave of Corruccio. Our light lunch awaits us at Rifugio Ragabo. After lunch, we will commence the long descent of 18 km on the tarmacked road returning to our starting point. We will then head back to base in our vehicle.
