You will have the opportunity to ride a quad for the whole itinerary, and every quad can accommodate up to two people, who will be responsible for their vehicle. During the journey we will cross an eruptive fracture, admire explosive craters and visit a lava flow cave. We will visit some of the typical buildings of the area, similar to the Sardinian nuraghi or the Puglian trulli.
Continuing along the route, we will cross the Etna broom tree forest, descend along the lava flow channels, passing between lunar landscapes and green dagale, until the end of the lava tour. Afterwards, the “Jungle tour” will be waiting for us, and during the summer we will make a “fruit pit stop” with seasonal products at a local organic farm, so we will have the opportunity to appreciate and maybe pick for ourselves the good fruits that the volcano gives. Following the basin of a dried torrent, we will cross a forest of Etna pines, from which the landscape will be characterized by the alternation of lava and forests until the return to the starting point.
