Ascent of Mt. Etna
Depart from the port for a dramatic drive via air-conditioned motor coach to the slopes of Europe's largest active volcano. Winding your way through small villages, lemon groves, orchards, vineyards, chestnut and pinewoods, you gradually encounter the hardened lava fields scattered with volcanic cones. Enjoy the view from the Silvestri Craters located at an altitude of 6200 feet and surrounded by hardened lava flow. You're sure to appreciate this eerie, unique scenery as you travel to the next level by cable car. Finally, board 4x4 vans for the drive to the base of the crater, where Alpine guides will join you for the twenty-minute walk up as close as possible to the crater's edge. Then it's back down, winding through the fields and villages for a return to Taormina and SeaDream.
Notes: Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, as some of the uphill walking will be on loosed volcanic shingle. And, bring a warm jacket, as the wind on top of the mountain can be strong and cold. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. This program can also be booked onboard so please make your reservations as soon as possible after boarding to avoid disappointment.
