Full description

Visit the Alcantara Gorge region on a quad bike and be amazed by the stupendous landscapes that can be admired from the slopes of Montagna Grande, where your gaze sweeps from the Ionian Sea to the Tyrrhenian Sea, as far as MountEtna and theAspromonte of Calabria.

On board the 4-wheel vehicle, you will travel along nature trails and immerse yourself in the heart of the Alcantara River Park, discovering the great variety of flora and fauna and the most beautiful views.

What we will do

The starting point for the excursion is Francavilla di Sicilia, in the province of Messina. After meeting the excursion guide who will accompany us on the tour and a briefing on the use of the quad bikes and safety regulations, we will set off on board the bombastic 4x4 vehicles.

We will pass through the centre of Francavilla and the nearby village of Castiglione di Sicilia, which, with its castles and views overlooking the Alcantara Valley, is counted among the most beautiful villages in Italy.

We then continue to the town of Motta Camastra, where we take the path that will lead us up the slopes of Montagna Grande. This is the highest mountain in the Peloritani chain, at 1,374 metres in height, and promises unique views of the Sicilian mountains, the sea and the Strait of Messina, as far as the Calabrian coastline.

The excursion lasts a total of 3.5 hours and ends with the return to the starting point.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and is open to all B licence holders. Children aged 3 and under can also board the quad bike as passengers.
