Mount etna

The idea was not to go far up to the top, not even halfway, but once we got there with our rental car, returning from Taormina, we could not resist. After parking we approached the cable car terminal, and it actually went for a pretty high price (about 24 euros), and they were some old cabins that held 4 people. The ascent is very short when compared to the Teide, and once up, you will find a person who sells you colored crystal stones as souvenirs. Some sort of rock-cut road runs along the top of the volcano, and as much as we tried to, we could not find its mouth. Although it was April, there was still plenty of snow. So after taking a few pictures we took the cabin back and went back a little sad that we didn´t have a chance to actually go inside the volcano.

Walking on an active volcano

When viewed from afar the fumaroles of the volcano makes you want to turn around, as it is preparing a rash. However, it seems that the vents are precisely a sign that all is well: like a pressure cooker it were, underground gases emanating slowly instead of causing an explosion. During the long climb we constantly watching the volcano, until we reached a point where we have to change the autopullman car or cable car, the same as during the winter, moved skiers to the slopes. The tour continues on-road small buses that take us to an area where we can peek at several craters, but not the principal. It is strictly forbidden to walk up and circulate unauthorized areas. Do not forget that this is an active volcano and that any negligence may endanger personnel Park. After visiting the volcano is a good idea to shop around Taormina, a beautiful coastal town from whose theater is the silhouette of Etna.

Caminar sobre un volcán activo

Cuando se ven desde lejos las fumarolas del volcán dan ganas de dar la vuelta, por si se está preparando una erupción. Sin embargo, parece que las fumarolas, precisamente, son un signo de que todo va bien: como si de una olla a presión se tratase, los gases subterráneos emanan poco a poco en lugar de provocar una explosión.

Durante el largo ascenso vamos viendo constantemente el volcán, hasta que llegamos a un punto en el que tenemos que cambiar el autopullman o el coche por el teleférico, el mismo que, durante el invierno, traslada a los esquiadores a las pistas.

La visita guiada continúa en pequeños autobuses todo terreno, que nos acercan a una zona en la que podemos asomarnos a varios cráteres, pero no al principal. Está totalmente prohibido subir a pie y circular por las zonas no autorizadas.

No hay que olvidar que se trata de un volcán activo y que cualquier imprudencia puede poner en peligro al personal del Parque. Después de visitar el volcán es buena idea darse una vuelta por Taormina, un bonito pueblo de la costa, desde cuyo teatro se ve la silueta del Etna.

What wonder at this lunar payasage. Unfortunately, the day of my visit, the beginnings of an eruption were being felt, and access to the summit craters was forbidden. So we had to settle for a truncated hiking. But, fortunately, the mist that enveloped the summit rose, leaving out what we could guess that by far the inséssants growls: An eruption crater annex on the north flank is. A bit far but impressive nonetheless. Only regret not seeing the column of lava over 300m high which springs for more than 12 hours the next night, even leading to the closure of the airport in Catania! An experience once in their life, I think. It's really amazing to see the power of nature. We opted for a gondola ride and 4 * 4 up to about 2500 m to save for the future! In vain! The descent was made to walk in compensation. A rather to encourage anyone who does not walk gene. We enjoy so much of payasages and details (volcanic bombs, craters annexes, slag fields ...)

Quel émerveillement devant ce payasage lunaire. Malheureusement, le jour de ma visite, les prémices d'une éruption se faisaient ressentir et l'accès aux cratères sommitaux était interdit. Du coup il a fallu se contenter d'une randonnée tronquée. Mais, par bonheur, la brume qui enveloppait le sommet s'est levée, laissant découvrir ce qu'on ne pouvait jusque là deviner que par les grondements sourds inséssants : Une éruption du cratère annexe sur le flan nord est.

Un peu loin mais impressionant malgré tout.

Seul regret, ne pas voir la colonne de lave de plus de 300m de haut qui a jaillit pendant plus de 12 heures la nuit suivante, entrainant même la fermeture de l'aéroport de catane!

Une expérience à vivre une fois dans sa vie je pense. C'est vraiment époustouflant de voir la force de la nature.

Nous avions opté pour une montée en télécabine et 4*4 jusqu'à 2500 m environ pour s'économiser pour la suite! En vain! La descente a été faite à pied en compensation. A favoriser plutôt pour tous ceux que ça ne gène pas de marcher. On profite tellement plus des payasages et des détails (bombes volcaniques, cratères annexes, champs de scories...)

Etna is with its 3342 meters, the largest active volcano in Europe. We spent the previous night in Nicolosi, a beautiful mountain village where they eat some delicious mushrooms. The next day, early, we took the road towards the "Etna", and in an hour we were in an Italian Alpine Club refuge and ski area, this road continued to the famous Valle del Bove, (instead of the more impressive eruptions and lava famous waterfall) but was cut off by the last eruption of summer 2001 and has not yet been fully rebuilt. Once at the Sapienza refuge, we took the chairlift up to Etna, which had only recently reopened because in 2001 the eruption was loaded machinery. Subircon could also coaches SUV, but found the cable car nicer. The cable car drops to 2915 m above sea level, and as you go up you see a wonderful view of the volcano. When you get above note, the cold, the wind. The desert landscape is impressive, imagine that at any moment I could wake up and re-buried houses was a little scary, even. You could see the smoke, the smell ... A bit of sulfur. 'There was the possibility of ascending to the summit with a guide but we did not go prepared and the wind was very annoying, so I took a walk around, enjoying the sights and came back down.

El Etna es, con sus 3342 metros, el volcán activo mas grande de Europa. Nosotros pasamos la noche anterior en Nicolosi, un pueblecito de montaña precioso donde se comen unas setas exquisitas.

Al día siguiente, temprano, cogimos la carretera en dirección al “Etna“, y en una hora estabámos en un refugio del Club Alpino Italiano y al área de esquí; esta carretera continuaba hacia el famoso valle del Bove, (lugar de las mas impresionantes erupciones y la famosa cascada de lava) pero fue cortada por la ultima erupción de verano de 2001 y aún no ha sido totalmente reconstruida.

Una vez en el refugio Sapienza, nosotros cogimos el teleférico que sube al Etna, que hacía poco que habían vuelto a abrir porqué en 2001 la erupción se había cargado la maquinaria.
También se podía subircon los autocares todoterreno, pero nos pareció más bonito el teleférico.

El teleférico te deja a los 2915 m de altitud, y mientras vas subiendo ves unas maravillosas vistas del volcán. Cuando llegas arriba se nota, el frío, el viento. El paisaje desértico es imponente, imaginar que en cualquier momento podía despertar y volver a sepultar casas daba un poco de miedo, incluso.

Podías observar el humo, el olor...Un poco a azufre. ´
Allí había la posibilidad de ascender a la cumbre con un guía pero nosotros no íbamos preparados y el viento era muy molesto, así que dimos un paseo por allí, disfrutando de las vistas y volvimos a bajar.

Valle del bove

The Bolve Valley, Mount Etna, Catania (Sicily). I had the opportunity to visit the Etna two years ago and it left a footprint incredible. I have always been attracted to the volcanoes but until then no one had stepped on my own feet. This valley covers the entire eastern slope of Etna, has more than 60,000 years old and is about 37 square kilometers. Over time it has been covered and coated in lava flows and believe not so old ... the last was in the 90s. Furthermore, within the valley could be seen several craters. It was wonderful to see the main mouth from this amazing landscape. I would love to return to visit all Etna Natural Park because it is a monument of nature!

Valle del bove

El Valle del Bolve, Monte Etna, Catania (Sicilia).
Tuve la oportunidad de visitar el Etna hace dos años y me dejó una huella increíble. Desde siempre me han atraído los volcanes pero hasta entonces no había pisado uno con mis propios pies.
Este valle cubre toda la ladera oriental del Etna, tiene más de 60.000 años y mide unos 37 kilómetros cuadrados. Con el tiempo ha sido cubierto y recubierto por diferentes coladas de lava y no creáis tan antiguas...la última fue en los años 90. Además, dentro del valle se podían observar varios cráteres. Fue maravilloso contemplar la boca principal desde este panorama tan asombroso. ¡Me encantaría volver para visitar todo el parque natural del Etna porque es un monumento de la naturaleza!

Mount Etna is the largest active volcano in Europe yet: very impressive, you can enjoy the various views (sports attention growing!) And the surrounding landscapes. It is also the highest mountain in Sicily (about 3350 meters as the height varies with each eruption) and the greatest natural attraction of this island.

Le Mont Etna est un des plus grands volcans en Europe encore actif: très impressionnant, vous pourrez apprécier les divers points de vue (attention sportifs, ça grimpe!) ainsi que les paysages avoisinants. C'est aussi la plus haute montagne de sicile (3350 mètres environ car la hauteur varie avec chaque éruption) et la plus grande attraction naturelle de cette île.

Birthday etna

These photos are part of my car birthday gift. A few years ago I decided to spend my birthday in a particular place, so I Household equipment with a friend and we went up to a height of about 3,000 feet and then to spend the whole day in the most complete solitude. A wonderful experience. The silence, the wind chill, the hawks and the play of light that created the clouds, it is the total absence of man, an almost magical place.

Birthday etna

Queste foto fanno parte del mio auto regalo di compleanno. Qualche anno fa decisi di trascorrere il mio compleanno in un luogo particolare, così mi attrezzai con un amico e salimmo fino a quota 3000 circa a piedi per poi passare l'intera giornata nella più completa solitudine. Un'esperienza magnifica. Il silenzio, il vento gelido, i falchi e i giochi di luce che creavano le nuvole, mi sta alla totale assenza dell'uomo, un luogo quasi magico.

Mount black

Etna I was a few months ago for the first time and I was enchanted by the almost lunar landscape that I found. To ask a walk through the valleys black was an incredible experience! I went in the summer and in a time when the volcano was not especially lively. I promised to come back and maybe take a ride on the cable car.

Il monte nero

Sono stata sull'Etna pochi mesi fa per la prima volta e sono rimasta incantata dal paesaggio quasi lunare che ho trovato. Poter fare una passeggiata tra le sue valli nere è stata un'esperienza incredibile! Sono andata in estate e in un momento in cui il vulcano non era particolarmente vivace. Mi sono ripromessa di tornarci e magari fare un giro sulla funivia.

Walk on the etna volcano

Excursion to 2700 of the European volcano The Ethna always active and categorized as an explosive volcano! A lunar landscape where the mist appears a fraction of a second! Impressive and confusing! The last major eruption dates back to the 90s when the lava is down to around 700 meters from the town!

Balade sur le volcan de l'etna

Excursion à 2700 sur le volcan européen de L'ethna toujours en activité et catégorisé comme un volcan explosif !

Un paysage lunaire où la brume apparaît en une fraction de seconde ! Impressionnant et déroutant !

La dernière irruption importante remonte aux années 90 où la coulée de lave est descendue à près de 700 mètres de la ville !

I'm just saying that you have to climb to the top to really understand what it means to be on a volcano .. a wonderful experience that I recommend to do at all. One thing that impressed me so much was the feel the real silence .... Wonderful

Dico solo che bisogna salire fino in cima per capire davvero cosa significa stare su un vulcano meraviglioso

Dico solo che bisogna salire fino in cima per capire davvero cosa significa stare su un vulcano meraviglioso.. È un esperienza che consiglio di fare a tutti. Una cosa che mi ha colpito tanto è stato il sentire il vero silenzio.... Meraviglioso

A glimmer of hope

Etna never sleeps. When you least expect it wakes up and destroys everything. That happened, for example, in 2002. Rivers of lava down its slopes taking away everything they encountered, mainly trees, of which today only their skeletons. Among all this still life, sprouted a new pine. Never was so hopeful ...

Un brote de esperanza

El Etna no duerme nunca. Cuando menos te lo esperas se despierta y arrasa con todo. Eso pasó, por ejemplo, en 2002. Ríos de lava bajaron por sus laderas llevándose a su paso todo lo que encontraban, principalmente árboles, de los que hoy sólo quedan sus esqueletos. Entre toda esa naturaleza muerta, brotaba un nuevo pino. Nunca fue tan esperanzador...

Mount Etna Mount Etna, or, you can turn off in the long and also around the circumetnea by railcar. We reserve unique views in every corner. But you can see from above at an altitude of 3000 meters above a plane just took off or landing at the airport of Catania.

L'Etna o mongibello, lo si può girare in lungo in largo e anche intorno con la littorina della circumetnea. Ci riserva scorci unici in ogni suo angolo. Ma lo si può ammirare anche dall'alto a quota 3000 metri da sopra un aereo appena decollato o in fase di atterraggio all'aeroporto di catania.
