Etna ski resort, Italy

ski hotels

It is the highest and most renowned active volcano in Europe, having a height of 3343 meters.

In the last years it has been a worldwide attraction for both scientists and tourists.  Due to hot lava eruptions it is hard to imagine snow covered slopes, ski trails and ski runs. However, the winter offers a lot of impressive skiing and snowboarding possibilities. There are two villages located near the crater, Nicolosi and Linguaglossa. They are the main tourist attractions in the area, where there are accommodation and other types of facilities. Unfortunately, the last eruptions dating back from 2001 have heavily affected the ski areas, and investments are necessary. Since 2005, there have been made numerous improvements, so now the resort’s splendor has been partially restored.
