Visit to the summit crater of Etna volcano - access for guided groups now open again
Visit to the summit crater of Etna volcano - access for guided groups now open again
New access regulations for the summit region of Etna volcano have been agreed upon with the prefecture of Catania and the mountain guides.
While the summit area (above 2900 m a.s.l.) was often closed to everybody, even if accompanied by mountain guides, this limitation is now lifted: Groups accompanied by an accredited mountain guide may now access the summit area at their own judgement and risk even when the summit area is closed to the public.
This is a significant step towards a more liberal approach to make this unique, highly interesting, although potentially dangerous geologic environment available for a personal first-hand experience. It opens the way for those who would like to see the fascinating summit craters of Europe's most active volcano from close. If you are interested in a guided tour to Etna's summit area, have a look here.
