Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

Von nun an verläuft der E1 dabei auf der Pista Altomontana (701). Dieser Hauptwanderweg führt auf seiner vollen Länge einmal um den gesamten Ätna.

Nach dem Rifugio Santa Maria, ca. 15 Kilometer nach dem Start auf der Pista Altomontana muss der Hauptweg nach links verlassen werden. An dieser Stelle wird die Lava von 1981 gekreuzt. Am Rifugio Monte Spagnolo (kein Wasser) erreichen wir wieder die Pista Altomontana, der wir bis zum Rifugio Monte la Nave folgen.

Je nach gewünschten Etappenlängen kann diese Etappe auch zu einem der anderen Rifugios verkürzt oder verlängert werden.
