Trekking on the Etna

Among the many wild and wonderful places that characterize the Italian territory, perhaps one of the most suggestive as scenarios and to walk for the hiker is the network of paths and scenic routes along the slopes of Etna, in Sicily, where it rises the most impressive volcanic massif on the continent.

Between the sea and the sky, on the highest European volcano

Thanks to the presence of these numerous itineraries, any lover of outdoor activities, from beginners to experts, can begin an own personal adventure on the Sicilian volcano, and deepen the knowledge by following the different thematic and landscape areas that comprise it.
To face these paths in complete serenity, protected in a proper way by a structured and robust shoe, we have chosen our Trezeta Hurricane Evo WP, a mid-cut boot that combines exceptional lightness, comfort and first-rate technical features, like the upper in suede leather, resistant and perfectly wrapping the foot thanks to the specific last for hiking.
The protection is increased by the presence of the Water Stopper membrane, exclusive by Trezeta, which does not allow water and external elements to penetrate inside the shoe and therefore compromise the comfort of the foot.
The sole package is designed exactly for mixed terrain that we will tackle on the slopes of Etna: a microporous wedge, resistant and shockabsorbing, and a Vibram® Winkler Evo outsole that ensures excellent traction on any surface, even scree and rough and muddy terrain.
For our first approach with the volcano, we decided to take two different routes that are proposed for their ease to all the less experienced: the first hiking trail traced in Sicily, in 1991, which takes its name from the Monti Neri degli Zappini , starting and arriving from the Monte Vetore plateau, in the southern part of the mountain, at about 1700 meters above sea level. About 4 kilometers long, it is easy to follow and along the track you can find many observation points that open up the view on some wonderful backgrounds, from lava flows to sea views. The other route is the one that reaches the Monti Sartorius, starting from the parking of the Citelli hut at about 1600 meters, and makes its way to one of the most famous places along the slopes of Etna and a valuable point of study for geologists. You can observe the typical lava formations and also the secondary lava ducts, such as Monte Frumento delle Cocazze. A bit more challenging as a route, especially for the presence of some more bumpy, but within reach of anyone. Only a small beginning to study and enjoy the wonderful opportunities that this lava giant offers us and that we will be able to exploit on other occasions.
