Full description

Embark on abody rafting adventure just 20 minutes from Taormina and Giardini Naxos, in one of Italy's most impressive canyons: the Alcantara Gorges.

Body ra fting (also known as river trekking) is an exploratory practice of the torrents that flow through the rocky gorges and allows you to reach the most impervious and suggestive corners between dips, jumps, and stretches in which to let yourself go with the current.

Accompanying you in your exploration will be a certified guide who will ensure maximum fun and safety for all participants. What are you waiting for? Join us!

What we will do

The meeting point is in Motta Camastra, in the province of Messina. Having formed the group and got to know the guide, we will proceed to get dressed in neoprene wetsuits, footwear, helmets, and life jackets. Then, with a shuttle transfer of a few minutes, we will reach the Alcantara Gorge canyon.

Our adventure will take place in a part of the Gorges away from mass tourism, for a truly adrenalin-fuelled adventure.

Before we dive into the fun, the guide will give a briefing on the rules of behaviour and safety. Afterwards, we will enter the stream bed and begin our approximately one-hour ascent along the deep lava gorges, carved out over millennia by the incessant flow of water.

Along the way we will have to overcome rapids and waterfalls, jump from one rock to another, climb over spurs, dive into crystal-clear pools (the highest dive is 7 metres, avoidable), swim in water corridors or simply let ourselves go with the current and have fun!

The guide will always be by our side to help us in the most inaccessible spots and make the experience safe and enjoyable for everyone. The activity lasts a total of about 2 hours, including preparation, transfer, briefing and body rafting course of about 1 hour.
