Price from



5 h



The Mountain Biking tour to discover the South West side of Mount Etna, where fantastic MTB paths with surfaces marked by lava sand and lava sciara await you. Cycling along the paths immersed in the old lava flows and centuries old woods will make you feel a sensation that you won’t easily forget, in fact between the climbs, descents and single tracks, you will feel like you are living an adventure…

Booking this tour you will have included in the price and at no extra cost the MTB and the Pick-Up Service from our Meeting Point in Catania to the volcano Etna.

From Piano Vetore we will depart by MTB (approximately 1.750 mt) and through an easy dirt road and a dense forest we will head by bike towards the Galvarina hut (approximately 1.900 mt) where we will make the first of the various stops. Then we will descend towards a characteristic Etnean descent, full of long, sandy and fast hairpin bends towards Monte Lepre, and we will make another short stop to enjoy the landscape views at an altitude of 1.500 mt. Once we set off again, crossing a lava dirt road, we will head towards Monte Ruvolo, and continue our ride towards Case Zampini, where we will stop for a packed lunch (not provided by the ORG).
After the lunch the going will get really tough; in fact, lava sands and climbs eager for your tiredness will put your legs and your mind to the test, until we reach Piano Vetore at 1.750 mt (approximately) again.
