As you embark on your journey to the Sartorius Mounts, you will witness the astonishing landscapes of Mount Etna. The towering volcano, surrounded by lush vegetation and picturesque villages, is a sight to behold. What will surely amaze you is the forest of a very rare type of birch tree that you will pass through. The characteristic bark of these trees, in order to adapt to their surroundings, evolved to a silvery-white color, and on some specimens the pigment fades to a beautiful pink toward the branches, providing an unparalleled natural spectacle to your view. 

Once you arrive at the top, you will be greeted by a vast lunar-like terrain, with the seven craters looming in the distance. You will notice the distinctive colors of the volcanic rock, ranging from deep reds and browns to shades of black and gray. The scent of sulfur in the air is a reminder of the immense power that created this stunning landscape. With sunny weather you’ll be able to admire the entire coastline where the Etna overlooks, from Taormina to Calabria, admire the entire coastline where the Etna overlooks, making your gaze reach as far as the island of Stromboli!
