Activity description

This is an adventurous canyoning excursion that will let you tread a spectacular canyon carved into the limestone by the continuous erosion of the water, using mountaineering equipment and expertise of qualified staff.

In the natural park of Alcantara River, you'll find unspoiled and stunning landscapes. The whole canyoning area is characterized by waterfalls and circular ponds and deep and evocative gorges such as the Alcantara Gorge.

Formed from Mount Etna and the Nebrodi Mountains, the Alcantara Gorge is one of the few rivers in Sicily that runs year round. Lucky for you it's a very special place that is overlooked by tourists, making it the ideal spot for you to enjoy an exclusive canyoning excursion. Only locals such as your expert guide know about this great spot. It is an amazing place to cool off during the long, hot, Sicilian summers and what better way to cool off then by diving, jumping and swimming in the clear blue water pools!

There is so much to do at the Alcantara Gorge once you arrive and Sicilian Adventure offers canyoning excursions and aquatic hikes along this great river.
