Summary


Explore “Tre Livelli” lava cave with ropes and harness and trekking through a nature path of Parco dell’Etna with view on Bove Valley.

What You Can Expect


 

The itinerary allows you to visit one of the most beautiful and characteristic lava flow caves: the famous Serra Cozza Cave 1, generated by the lava in 1971.
Inside the cave it is possible to admire spectacular stalactites, blisters and fantastic overlapping lava shelves. This cave, in the upstream section, is contained in the eruptive crack and has a section with a shape of a keyhole, several meters high, and no more than 3 m. wide. On the vault you can observe some openings. The downstream section is instead a flow gallery, with a great slope, 350 m. long, and 2 to 3 m. wide, with a floor made of scoriacic lava. In the first section the sides are opaque, but further ahead they still maintain a glassy look. Continuing the itinerary, on a path submerged by a dense vegetation made of birch trees with ginestre scrubs, you will cross valleys created by the last eruption, until you reach a panoramic point from where you will be able to admire the vastness and uniqueness of Bove Valley landscape.
