Full description
The itinerary will allow you to visit one of the most beautiful and characteristic lava flow caves: the famous Serra Cozza Cave 1, generated by lava in 1971. Inside the cave, it will be possible to admire spectacular stalactites, blisters and fantastic overlapping lava shelves.

This cave, in the upstream section, is contained in the eruptive crack and has a section with a shape of a keyhole, several meters high and no more than 3 meters wide. On the vault, you can observe some openings. The downstream section is instead a flow gallery, with a great slope, 350 meters long, and 2 to 3 meters wide, with a floor made of scoriacic lava. In the first section, the sides will be opaque but further ahead, they still maintain a glassy look.

Continuing the itinerary on a path submerged by a dense vegetation made of birch trees with ginestre scrubs, you will cross valleys created by the last eruption until you reach a panoramic point from where you will be able to admire the vastness and uniqueness of the Bove Valley landscape.
