The excursion to the 2002 eruption's craters is one of the most popular destination and it is the most chosen by the schools because of the huge amount of informations that this path can give, regarding the volcanological, geological and naturalistic aspects; but mostly it is chosen because it allows the boys to learn about the strong energy produced by the volcano, according to the relationship with the man, completely impotent in front of the power of the natural phenomena.

TREKKING AI MONTI SARTORIUS


DURATION 
3 H
DIFFICULTY
LOCATION
ETNA NORD EST

 

DESCRIPTION

The excursion to the Monti Sartorius is one of the most popular excursion for the path's simplicity and for the possibility of going across the whole eruptive fracture for 3 km of length. The starting point of the path is easy to recognize, because it is located less than a kilometre from the street that leads to Rifugio Citelli and it is reported on the right side of the street by a road sign which says "Comune di Sant'Alfio - Monti Sartorius s.l.m. 1667m" and by a green barrier. The path develops inside a little wood of pines and birch, endemic species of the Etna, and then it comes up in a plateau, constitued by small plants (also endemic), lava flows and pyroclastic products (bombs, scoria and ashes) till we arrive at the craters' basis. At the end of the uphill it will be possible to admire the craters, the panorama constitued by the huge lavic flow, the pine forest of Linguaglossa and, if the visibility is good, it will be possible to look over the Ionian Sea. Behind us, instead, the protagonists will be the whole adventitious cone of Monte Frumento delle Concazze and the northern side of the Etna. Possibility of making the lunch break into Rifugio Monte Baracca, managed by Linguaglossa's CAI, 1 kilometre far away from Monti Sartorius.
