Activity description

Test your suspension on the volcanic trails of mighty Mt. Etna on this MTB day trip!

Europe's most active volcano makes the perfect setting for an all-or-nothing altitude enduro! Explore Mt. Etna from the saddle on this guided day tour from Taormina to Giardini Naxos, reaching 1850m above sea level as you explore hilltop villages, forest single tracks, volcanic dirt trails and muddy off-road in Alcantara Gorge.

Location
This tour is run & operated from the Etna North trailhead and travels to Giardini Naxos. A 50 km./23 miles route at 1850 Mt./ 6000Ft, it starts in Piano Provenzana and crosses Mare-Neve, Linguaglossa, Castiglione di Sicilia & Alcantara valley. 

Activity
Meet your guide at the Etna trailhead (1850m) for this MTB tour of Mt. Etna. A downhill challenge for the enduro enthusiast, this 50km route travels through some of Sicily's most spectacular natural features - cruising from the north side of the volcano to the popular seaside town of Naxos. The route starts strong with double tracks, craters and verticals in the pine forest - picking up a paved road to the outskirts of Linguaglossa a town at 700 meters above sea level. A 3km uphill track takes you through tunnels and along an old railway to Alacantra - cooling off at the gorge. The last 15km cuts through citrus orchards and follows the river to the coastal village of Giardini Naxos on the Mediterranean Sea. An epic adventure packed with risk & reward!
