Hiking on Etna

The magnetic appeal of the summited craters of the volcano Etna

Hiking on mount Etna’s summits and craters is a must for enthusiasts of this sport. You can organize everything with the help of the reception at Shalai, to get impeccable service, with a van that can pick you up here at the hotel and take you to the chosen starting point for your high-altitude adventure. There are many possible types of excursions, from the ones for highly trained hikers with a fair amount of mountaineering experience, to routes that are suitable for all skill levels, with easier trails that require less experience. Every itinerary is magical, and brings special challenges for hikers. Whichever path you will choose you will be surrounded by beautiful nature, between lush patches of vegetation and surreal stretches of lava stone. You can pick your favourite destination, from Grotta dei Lamponi (in English, Raspberry Cave) and Crateri Silvestri (in English, Forest Craters), from Bove Valley to the Sartorius Mountains.
