Embark on an unforgettable Sicilian adventure, exploring two must-see attractions in one day! With convenient hotel transfers from Catania, you'll delve into the natural wonders of the island. Start your journey by meeting your expert guide in Catania, either at your accommodation or a pre-arranged location. A scenic drive in a comfortable, air-conditioned van will take you to the majestic Mount Etna, where you'll explore the awe-inspiring craters, either the Sartorius craters or the 2002 crater, on the Northeast side of this iconic volcano. As you walk through ancient forests, extinct craters, and old lava flows, your guide will share fascinating insights into volcanic phenomena. You'll witness the surreal landscapes of lava deserts, peculiar formations, and the remnants of past eruptions, reaching an altitude of 2000 meters. Next, venture into a volcanic cave, donning your helmet and lamp to explore the Grotto del Ladroni or Grotta Cassone, a truly unique experience. A delicious, traditional Sicilian lunch awaits you at a charming winery, where you'll indulge in a delectable meal, complete with an appetizer, first course, water, and wine, served either outdoors or indoors, depending on the weather. The breathtaking Alcantara canyons, carved out by ancient lava flows, will leave you in awe as you stroll along the picturesque Alcantara River. As the day comes to a close, you'll be returned to Catania, bringing back unforgettable memories of your Sicilian escapade.
