Description

Etna and Alcantara Gorges is a perfect combination for those who want to discover in a single day two of the most beautiful places in the world. Etna, with its lunar landscapes and the Alcantara Gorges, is the lava stone canyon carved by the water of the river of the same name. Departure from our pickup point in Catania. Our first stop will be in a typical Etna Village for a coffee or a fast breakfast. During the day will visit a natural lava cave, we will have an easy and panoramic walking through ancient side craters, and we will visit the places of the last biggest eruption (2002). Here we will have our lunch break. You can bring with you your own picnic (we suggest sandwiches, it will be easier) or you can buy something to eat in one of the little bar of the area. After lunch, we will drive to the Alcantara Valley (45 minutes far from Etna). After the explanation, you will have your spare time to enjoy the gorges (45 minutes). The entrance will be from the public access (stairs) if you prefer you can get the elevator (this has an extra cost of about 5€ per person). Etna: we recommend layered clothing, the mountain weather can vary at any time. Comfortable shoes (sneakers are enough), jackets. Alcantara gorges: shoes to walk in the river, swimming suit. For those not staying in Catania and have a rental car please let us know, we will set another pick up location.
