E-bike excursions

A1 E-bike North Etna: “Fiumi di Roccia” lava flow and caves

We will cycle along massive lava fields, ancient Etna forests, old craters and caves formed by the lava flow. During our tour, you will see the essence of Mount Etna volcano after a few kilometers of cycling.  We will bike to reach the most important destination of this MTB excursion, Grotta Dei Lamponi, located in the middle of an extensive brick-colored lava field. The lava field was formed after an eruption that lasted ten years, from 1614 to 1624. The enormous quantity of magma from the eruption of 1614 has left a spectacular geological structure commonly formed with the particular type of lava flow produced on Etna.

ADVICE AND GUIDELINES:

Etna is the largest active volcano in Europe, reaching 3340 meters above sea level. In 2013, Mount Etna became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and we can trace back its history to 600 thousand years of continuous evolution. On Etna’s summit, there are four active craters that emit large quantities of gasses on a daily basis.

Even though Etna is located on a Mediterranean Island, in the higher altitudes the weather is very unpredictable.

I offer excursions on Etna of various difficulty level and duration. My excursions will vary from challenging with a significant incline to easy walks designed for families. I advise clients to book the type of excursion according to one’s physical abilities and travel itinerary. In addition to the excursion to the summit craters, I provide easier excursions at a lower altitude where you can see lateral craters and lava flow caves.

Etna has loved and provided for the people who have settled or visited, and we have a deep love and respect for Mount Etna. Even though we have settled and thrived from the endless gifts of Mount Etna, we always need to remember that we are only guests.
