One more step towards Mount Etna exploration!!

We keep working on our project to share knowledge about Mount Etna! After our first Android version, we are now ready on the other main mobile app stores!!!.

We published the following mobile apps:
Free Android App

Free IOS App

Free Windows App

Our mobile apps are completely free, they allows you to bring with you all the info you need about Mount Etna trails. It has also some SMART features as the car directions to reach any trails starting point!!!

We suggest you to read carefully the app description on the store.

We plan to publish a paid version which will allow you to use GPS to walk on our tracks!

Enjoy Mount Etna!!!!

June 16, 2014 - After nearly five months of relative calm, Mount Etna is back to erupt!!. We finally published some pictures of the former,  spectacular eruptions that took place between the end of 2013 and the begin of 2014 (courtesy of some friends who took part in our guided tours)

Here are some of the photos taken in February 2014 by Giuseppe Famoso (http://www.flickr.com/photos/geko103/sets/)


We thank for these photos Vito Sergio Finocchiaro. They were taken at the end of 2013


We eagerly await the awakening of the giant, hoping that confines itself to be spectacular as it did this winter!
