Tolle Tour auf den Ätna!
Laura_Z
, Sep 2021
Die Tour war wirklich toll! Wir sind um 8:00 Uhr gestartet und haben noch den Sonnenaufgang über den Wolken gesehen! Vincenzo war sehr nett und hat viel erklärt. Die Tour hatte eine gute Länge, sie ging sogar etwas länger als die geplanten 4,5h. Wir konnten aufgrund der hohen Aktivität des Ätna nicht bis zum höchsten Krater, jedoch sei das auch nicht so oft möglich, das letzte Mal wäre eine Gruppe 2020 im Oktober dort gewesen. Trotzdem konnte man auf der Nordseite von 2800 Höhenmetern aus einen tollen Blick auf den Krater werfen, er hat etwas geraucht. der Blick ins Tal war atemberaubend! Sogar den Stromboli konnte man in der Ferne erkennen. Mit den Jeeps war die Tour sehr angenehm, man hat einige Höhenmeter geschafft - ohne Auto wäre das wohl kaum an einem Tag möglich. Danach sind wir ca. 6 km gewandert und haben uns alle kleinen Krater angeschaut, auch einen von innen, dafür haben wir Helme bekommen. Alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen und ein kleines Abenteuer! Ohne Guide hätte die Besichtigung keinen Sinn gemacht, wir hatten dies zuerst überlegt aber so konnte man sicher und entspannt alles anschauen und hat dabei eine Menge gelernt!
