Sicily Bike Tourist Service offers… Etna and MTB Tour – MOST EXTREME

The purpose of this Mountain Bike tour on the Etna volcano, is to test yourself … exhausting climbs and fast descents await you on the Etna volcano trails.

ETNA and Mountain Bike a unique combination… Etna Unesco heritage of which it is a pity not to discover the types and characteristics of its paths, never boring and never monotonous, landscapes from the morphology that will leave you amazed, places from the historical memories now part of of the nature of the mountain itself. We will go to the discovery of the Etna Sud bike, never banal mountain bike trails with a bottom characterized by lava sand and volcanic material…

Ascents, descents, single tracks, paths immersed in the old castings and centuries-old woods… lava scenarios and breathtaking landscapes will not leave you disappointed. Circular route, starting from Piano Vetore (1,750 mt) from there we will immediately enter the living, immersing ourselves in the saddle of mountain biking in a dense forest, full of climbs and descents fun and fast, then exit and continue along a dirt road characterized from a sandy and landscape without equal. We will go towards Galvarina Hut (about 1,900 mt) where we will make the first stop. From there… we will go mountain biking to a characteristic Etnea descent… full of long, sandy and fast bends… towards Gallo mount (about 1,560 mt).

From now on, between guided tours and greedy climbs of your sweat… the test will be really hard, and before you reach the 1,750 mt of Piano Vetore again… you can test your technical and physical skills.
