Etna 3000 and 2002 Craters


Etna 3000 starts from Piano Provenzana, one reaches an altitude of 2,900 meters by traveling with off-road vehicles along a high-mountain track, carved among suggestive expanses of lava and volcanic sand along the fracture that opened during the 2002 eruption. Continuing our excursion with our off-road vehicles up to an altitude of 2,840 meters, we reach the vulcanological observatory of Pizzi Deneri. From this point, the ascent on foot begins along a path surrounded by volcanic scoria and bombs. The total ascent is 300 meters until reaching a panoramic point at an altitude of 2,900 meters. With good weather, you can see both the “Leone” valley and the “Bove” valley, as well as the majesty of the Northeast and Southeast craters.
