Mt Etna Trekking Day Excursion

Etna – The Northern side: from Mongibello to Piano Provenzana

First of all, from the Northern side, we will start our ascent to the Mongibello. Actually, this is the local name of the volcano, which means “the beautiful mountain”.

Then, we will pass through the floods of solid lava, burnt trees and unique volcanic landscapes. Finally, we arrive at the Northern side of the volcano – Piano Provenzana.

Etna – The eruption of 2002

Finally, we are at the altitude of 1,881 m above sea level.

Moreover, the eruption in 2002 completely destroyed the area. Indeed, this part is still in the process of restructuring. For this reason, Sicilians only use cable car here.

Afterwards, we will continue with Etna trekking guide.
