Setting off from our base, on Mt Etna’s foothills, located in San Gregorio, after a briefing about driving the buggies, we’ll go through Pedara and then Nicolosi, led by one of our support vehicles with radio transmitter communication between the vehicles. At a short distance from the town, we ‘ll drive along an off-road track which passes by an old lava rock quarry, where our buggies will show off all their off-road handling skills. After the thrilling off-road driving experience, we’ll go along a scenic road which leads to Rifugio Sapienza. Along the way we’ll stop to take photos at the most scenic spots along route, then we’ll have a coffee break at the Corsaro bar/restaurant, to then have a walk around the top of the Silvestri Craters.
Then back in the Sideby Side and we’ll take the road down to a lava cave which will be visited wearing helmets and carrying torches. The next part of the route stops at a spot for viewing at its best the immense Valle del Bove from Mt Zoccolaro. Then we’ll head for Zafferana Etnea, Pedara and San Gregorio.
Note: on request, we can stop along the way to have a Sicilian style lunch in an agriturismo/country style restaurant.
