Join me on this fascinating trek to the Serracozzo cave on Mount Etna in Italy. You will not only see massive crater depressions which emit smoke and dust but also hike to an unmissable viewpoint to gorge on splendid vistas of Valle del Bove on this half-day trip.

Grotto of Serracozzo(1840m) is a popular lava flow tunnel which was created in 1971 because of an eruption. It was formed on the active stratovolcano of Etna on the east coast of Sicily.

We will begin and end our trek in Rifugio Citelli( 1740 m). After the initial briefing, we’ll head on a trail that leads through a beautiful forest. Here, you will spot many unique plant species like the birch. Moving forward, we will come across numerous channels of melting snow water. It will be a magnificent sight indeed! A further walk of about 1 and a half km takes us to the valley of Grotto of Serracozzo. And once you reach there and see the tunnel, it will be a spectacle like no other!

You will definitely be impressed to see the inside of this underpass filled with sulfate. From there, we’ll climb up to the viewpoint of Belvedere di Serracozzo(2100 m) to witness spectacular views of the Valle del Bove and other summit craters.

After creating some unforgettable memories, we will traverse sandy canals to get back to the starting point, ending this remarkable trip.

So, what are you waiting for? Send a message now to join me on this memorable trip to Grotta di Serracozzo on Mount Etna.
