After a hearty breakfast, everyone is ready for the first route. With our mini-buses we will reach the starting point of the path which will allow us to walk to Favara Grande (1) where it will be possible to observe secondary volcanic phenomena.
From the district of Scauri (2) we will ascend towards the Valle del Monastero (3), a large lava crater and today the cradle for the cultivation of vines; it is from here that we will reach the Grotta di Benikulà (4), which will provide a unique experience. It is in fact a Turkish bath inside a natural cave that uses water vapour escaping from a fissure in the rock inside the cave itself.
After this relaxing stop, we continue along the path at the foot of Montagna Grande (5) to reach the Valle delle Favare (6) where it is possible to perceive the breath of the island. This is the same phenomenon we encountered in the Grotta di Benikulà but this time under an open sky with large fissures from which water vapour escapes. A magical and ancestral place that will offer us the opportunity to stop for a picnic with local products.
After the stop, we will continue on to the meeting place and return by mini-bus to the facility.
Return in the early afternoon, dinner and overnight stay.
