Variant 1: Etna's summit craters - short circuit (ETN_C01)
Start at La Sapienza mountain station (1900 m elevation), take cable car and/ or jeeps to bring you quickly to ca. 2900 m elevation. From there, climb to the summit crater(s) (ca. 1-1.5 hrs climbing, 200-400 m difference). The exact route of ascend and which of the summit craters can be visited will depend on weather, fitness, activity etc. Spend ca. 1-2 hrs in the summit region, descend to the point of departure and descend (optional break in the 2900 m elevation area to observe the impressive newly formed craters of the eruption in 2002-2003). Jeep/cable-car descend back to parking area at La Sapienza.
