Partenza da Piano Provenzana, prima tappa a Rifugio Timparossa (dove si consiglia una breve sosta). Si continua verso le grotte dei Lamponi (si consiglia la visita approfondita), si prosegue poi per grotta Marsal, grotta di Aci e la bellissima grotta del Gelo. Ultima tappa alla grotta del Lago, si consiglia di prestare attenzione a causa dell'impervio terreno trovandoci sulla Sciara del Follone
