 Grotta del Gelo

Along the provincial road Mareneve, close to Ragabo Refuge, it begins a long way up to the most beautiful of Etna caves: Grotta del Gelo, at about 2000 meters a.s.l. Passing through recent and ancient lava flows, first you will reach Grotta dei Lamponi and after, a huge field of pahoehoe lava so called Dammusi, the perfect landscape to get one of the most important volcano destinations.
