  • Hiking Tour with Transportation
  • Hiking Tour without Transportation
For the first option, you'll be picked up with a jeep at your hotel and driven through the ancient villages of Piedimonte Etneo and Linguaglossa. The tour continues by following an off-road track through a pinewood named Bosco Ragabo to reach and explore the Grotta del Corruccio lava cave where your guide will lead you with flashlights.

For the second option, you'll meet your guide in Fiumafreddo you will visit Southern side of Mount Etna with your own car, and drive to get you to Linguaglossa to reach the Grotta dei Ladroni, a small prehistoric lava flow tunnel.
