Activity description

Come and discover the stunning surroundings of Sicily with an expert guide, who'll take you out to hidden areas that only the locals know about.

Hike up Mount Etna
You'll start off your hiking excursion by taking a walk on the beach, through a pine wood and a lava desert. This will take about about two hours and will let you lean out from the edge of the famous Valle del Bove and admire the massive Mount Etna and enjoy the astonishing landscapes from the central craters to the Ionian Sea.

At the end of the trail you will visit a typical lava tube (with helmet and front light provided) and the gourmands among you can savour honey and other typical Sicilian products with a taste testing session.

Hike up Etna & Alcantara
In addition to the above, you'll enjoy a quick lunch and then you'll continue with a visit of the spectacular and famous Alcantara Gorges. You'll have a pleasant walk along the river admiring the beautiful waterfalls and natural lakes where you'll be able to take a refreshing bath.
