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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
