Full description

Explore by quad bike one of the most fascinating areas of the entire Etnean territory, the Alcantara Valley, with its evocative lava gorges and unique scenery.

On board the 4-wheel vehicle you will move between the volcanic canyon, theriverbed and the valley floor full of woods and orchards, for an experience of discovery, excitement and fun.

The Alcantara River Park is waiting to show you one of the many marvellous sides of Sicily, made up of intense perfumes, vivid colours, millenary history and extraordinary landscapes.

What we will do

We will set off from the Alcantara Gorge in Motta Camastra (ME) and after a short briefing on the use of the quad bikes and safety regulations, we will start moving in the direction of the town of Francavilla di Sicilia on dirt tracks, which are very fun to tackle with the 4x4 vehicle.

During the2½-hour excursion , we will admire a variety of natural scenery, all highly suggestive. TheAlcantara riverbed is a site of great geological and natural interest, created by volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The famous Alcantara Gorges, in fact, are the result 'of the encounter' between the two elements and, specifically, theerosion of solidifiedmagmatic masses due to the incessant flow of water.

Near Francavilla, we will make a stop at the Convent of the Capuchin Friars, a place on the slopes of Etna that has stood the test of time, where one can still breathe in the atmosphere and spirituality of the monks of the 16th century. After this plunge into history, we will reach a bridge to admire a wonderful panoramic view of the river and the entire valley, and finally return to our starting point.
