Der Ätna hält uns zur Zeit mit seinen häufigen Ausbrüchen in Atem. Mit aber auch ohne Ausbrüche lohnt es sich, dem Ätna eine eigene Tour zu widmen, um die faszinierende Vielfalt dieses außergewöhnlichen Vulkans kennenzulernen. Wir haben daher ein neues Reiseprogramm mit mittleren und anspruchsvollen Wanderungen rund um den Ätna aufgebaut und laden Sie ein, vom 2.-8. November mitzukommen. ...mehr
