Excursion details

Etna, even in winter, is an ideal destination for those who love nature and trekking.
During the winter season, “a muntagna” dresses up in a white and wonderful blanket of snow and it is possible to explore its splendid centuries-old pine forest “Ragabo” with snowshoes; or follow less demanding paths between ancient and recent lava and volcanic cones, and be able to admire panoramas and snow-covered landscapes, and live a unique experience.
The use of snowshoes is simple, even for those who are using them for the first time.
The excursion is suitable for families and groups of friends who want to spend a joyful and relaxing adventure.
At the end of the excursion, it is possible to enjoy a cup of steaming chocolate, or a hot meal in a typical mountain structure, sitting comfortably in front of a crackling fireplace.

Note:

Good physical preparation is required, and no cardiological, respiratory and hypertensive problems.

For the safety of hikers, the guide can modify the excursion if adverse weather and volcanic conditions should occur, or for any other reason that could compromise the success of the excursion.
