O que você fará

We'll start the trail from Sapienza Hut (1.900m alt.) and follow the south ski route we'll go up to Mt Escrivà and then at feet of the New South-Estern Crater as if we could touch it. We'll see the lava flow of 2017 eruption and after a strong slope we'll need a short stop to take energy. Then we'll ready to begin an adrenalinic down in the Montagnola's gorge jumping on the lava sand and we'll be into the Bove Valley, Etna Volcano's Heart. There we could view the great lava sea of 1991-92 eruption and we follow a free track under the Donkey's Back. It is dangerous and amazing at the same time, because there is no path or route but it needs to know the right way if you don't lost on the lava desert. Then we'll go up again to arrive at an external cave formed by "dikes" on the sand.

(Optional) After the experience is possible to lunch in a typical Mountain Hut, with delicious wine, good meat or vegetable

The experience with only 1 participant is considered as a Private Special Tour so there will be an extra charge of 50Euro to be paid locally in cash or card.

Hi ! I'm Enzo (Vincenzo), I like to run and walk: It’s my life! I live in Nicolosi, Etna gateway, I’m an engineer but my passion is going on Mt Etna, on foot or mtb, so I became an excursionist guide of G.A.E. I’m an explorer and I like to know many views of my land so I can to show an alternative aspect of the Mt Etna. Every day is the best day to run new trek around the magic landscape of Etna. Come with me, I'll lead on the hard path with no tourists to view its Heart, so you can know what is really the Mount Etna.

Simply put, Enzo is the man and this "hike" was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I say "hike" as it was more of a climb, run, and hop then your typical hike (and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible). Enzo picked us up in Catania and spoke perfect English and is a great conversationalist. On our hike Enzo gave us a lot of historical and scientific information about Etna and the region. He is very knowledgeable and we learned quite a lot. He also brought a long and shared with us homemade fig bars which was spectacular. After reaching the summit we basically ran and hopped down Etna on the soft volcanic sand, which was probably the highlight of the trek as it felt like we were bouncing on the moon! Lastly, on the way back to Catania Enzo offered to stop at a Cafe in his hometown for us to try "the best cannoli" in all of Sicily... And he was right. It was heavenly. Overall, I highly suggest using Enzo's services when in Catania for either a pleasant, less aggressive hike, or the one we did which was very challenging (for us, not Enzo, he's in amazing shape). Thank you, Enzo! Good luck with your future physical events!!

Merci pour cette journée où malgré une météo difficile pour un 13 mai (froid et neige) Enzo a su adapté le parcours au niveau global du groupe. De bonnes explications, des petites attentions (thé et pâtes de fruit) et des sentiers en dehors des parcours touristiques avec cette splendide descente par les couloirs de cendres. Qu’une envie, faire un Etna trail bientôt avec le soleil

Enzo was a great tour guide. He knows all of back trails of Mt Etna! Thanks to him, even though the weather did not cooperate we had a great time with a unique experience running down gravel slopes! We loved his tour!

Fantastica domenica trascorsa sul vulcano Etna in compagnia della guida Enzo Ferro e di altri tre partecipanti alla escursione, partenza dal Rifugio Sapienza ci siamo inerpicati su per l'Etna seguendo il percorso della funivia. Arrivando a quota 2700 metri sui crateri, bisogna seguire la guida in quanto improvvisamente la nebbia fa la sua comparsa e non dà punti di riferimento, in questo Vincenzo si dimostra grande conoscitore dei luoghi. Discesa incredibile di corsa giu' per il canalone sabbioso della Montagnola. Esperienza bellissima, la guida esperta privilegia la sicurezza dei partecipanti, non trascurando di far conoscere la bellezza dei luoghi. Escursione altamente consigliata.
