Etna, also called “Mongibello” by Sicilian people, is the tallest volcano in Europe, declared Human Heritage by UNESCO. The peculiarity of this amazing place is its mutability. The volcano breaths, swells, moves and changes its lunar panorama in time.
The trail starts from Provenzana plain in Linguaglossa and goes, in a ring, on the north face.
At the beginning of the hike a hotel submerged by lava can be seen, covered by the big eruption of 2002. It goes on towards Monte Nero and, with caution, the “bottoniera” (very deep craters in a row) can be seen. It then goes down towards Gelo cavern, which can be visited, but a flashlight is recommended. It then proceeds until Pernicana plain.
