MTB trip to discover eastern Sicily and in particular Mount Etna, the Valley of the river Simeto and the river Alcantara.

We thought a tour lasting 5 days (with 3 MTB excursions) to visit Sicily by MTB, using the city of Catania as a starting point.

Description of the Tour

The 5-day tour is as follows:


Arrival in Catania, accommodation in a “B&B” structure, afternoon meeting in the historical center of Catania with the guide in charge for the presentation of the tour, and tasting of the typical Arancino Catanese and characteristic soft drink (seltz, lemon and salt), free evening

We will get to the heart of this experience with the first MTB tour, what could be better than starting with a mountain bike excursion to discover Etna?

From your B&B, transfer by shuttle to the starting point of the MTB excursion.

The MTB Tour will take you among the breathtaking scenery of Etna, UNESCO heritage site, immersed in nature and along the paths, you will enjoy the charm of the landscapes of the largest volcano in Europe and among the most active in the world.

Depending on cycling abilities, participants will have the opportunity to choose two of our most popular tours, with different levels of difficulty

MTB tour on/off road, at the Simeto river valley, Sicily’s river (113 km; basin 4186 km2), the most important for water volume and for the surface of the basin between the Sicilian rivers. Along typical Sicilian roads and dirt roads, we will discover the real Sicily, the Sicily of the villages and of the districts rich in history. Skirting part of the Simeto river embankment, we will head towards an inland characterized by clay hills and sandy paths, where there are no excessive differences in height, but the characteristic of the trails and the presence of technical stretches uphill, will test your physical abilities.

Mileage and difficulty of the trails will be selected based on the ability of the participants.

On returning from the tour, participants will have afternoon and evening free.

From your B&B, transfer by shuttle to the starting point of the MTB excursion. MTB tour on/off road, along the cold waters of the Alcantara river, a stream with unusual characteristics. Born from the volcanic cone of Etna, at an altitude of 1.250 mt on the Nebrodi mountains, although only 52 km long, it retains considerable importance for the numerous naturalistic, historical and cultural aspects. This is the tour where you can find the most varied type of route: Sand, lava sand, lava stone, pebbles, clay, challenging climbs and thrilling descents… all this in a single on/off road path that never leaves disappointed.

For the more adventurous it will also be possible to take a nice swim in the cold waters of the river, a classic that cannot be missed.
