Etna Base Camp - 22 km
This morning, after a good breakfast, we transfer back to the Maletto hut and set off, heading directly south skirting the western flanks of the volcano. We soon pass above the town of Bronte and by midday we eat our packed-lunches overlooking the towns of Biancavilla and Adrano with our backs to the formidable summit of Etna. The afternoon is spent trekking up to Etna ‘base camp’, the traditional starting point for hundreds who climb the summit each day. Tonight, in our comfortable hotel, we are able to fully relax with great Sicilian food and wine before an early night in preparation of our final climb in the morning.
