Details

Explore some of the outstanding places in the world with MrExcursions! Our Tour Etna and Alcantara Gorges from Taormina take you on a journey through volcanic craters, rock formations, grand canyons, and the beauty of Taormina. We will cross a pine and birch forest on Mount Etna, enjoy spectacular views, and the breath-taking landscape of Europe’s highest volcano. We will visit a volcanic tunnel, and explore impressive areas such as the ancient Sartorius Mounts’ craters, extinct craters that erupted in 1865. We will also walk along these particular craters termed “a bottoniera”, seven marvelous aligned craters which have developed over time during Mount Etna’s eruptions. Next, we will guide you to discover the exciting Alcantara River Park and the incredible rock formations of the Gorges of Alcantara. The Alcantara river, surrounded by lava stone waterfalls, is 52 kilometers long.

At about 20 km from Taormina, the gorges are real canyons made of black lava walls up to 50 meters high, in the typical shape of a prism that the rocks have taken during the cooling process. Note that within the grooves, the toning and crystal clear waters of the river Alcantara run surrounded by an unspoiled landscape, with rare flora and fauna. You will not be disappointed: we will deliver a truly awesome experience.
