the Etna MTB tour that will put you to the test


Price from



3 h



Mountain Bike Tour on the Etna volcano which aims to put you to the test on a muscular MTB; exhausting climbs and very fast descents await you on the trails of the Etna volcano.

We will go to discover South West Etna by bike, where you will have the opportunity to pedal on mountain bike routes with a surface characterized by lava sand and lava sciara.
An adventure to try among climbs, descents, single tracks and paths immersed in old lava flows and centuries-old woods.

ETNA and Mountain Bike are a unique combination, there is nothing more exciting for mountain bike lovers than discovering Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe and a UNESCO heritage site, spectacular for the variety of its paths and engaging thanks to the landscapes and places with historical memories that are now part of the very nature of the mountain.

From Piano Vetore we will leave for a circular tour, immersing ourselves in a dense forest where we will come across an exhausting climb that will ultimately give us the thrill of a beautiful single track and a fun descent. We will continue pedaling towards the Pista Altomontana, a dirt road characterized by a sandy surface and an unrivaled landscape; subsequently we will go towards Galvarina hut (approximately 1.900 mt) where we will make the first stop, from there we will continue by mountain bike towards a fast and fun descent Etnea, full of long sandy and technical hairpin bends towards Monte Gallo (approximately 1.560 mt).

From this moment on, between guided routes and climbs eager for your sweat, the test will become really tough, and before reaching the 1.750 mt of Piano Vetore again, you will have the opportunity to put your technical and physical abilities to the test.
