Castiglione di Sicilia & Alcantara Gorges Excursion
You will walk a new path, one of adventure and exploration. We will guide you to discover the exciting Alcantara River Park with the incredible rock formations of the Gorges of Alcantara, and one of the most beautiful Borgo of Italy Castiglione di Sicilia.
Immersed in nature between olive groves and fig trees, the Alcantara river flows silently. The Alcantara has its source on the south side of Monti Nebrodi and its mouth in the Ionian Sea at Capo Schiso in Giardini-Naxos. The river, surrounded by lava stone waterfalls, is 54 kilometres long. At about 20 km from Taormina, the gorges are real canyons made of black lava walls up to 30 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.
Unique in the Italian and European natural landscape, the Alcantara Gorges are one of the must-see attractions of Sicily, we will visit the Alcantara Gorges where there’s a possibility to do a short river trekking inside the canyon.
The next stop is Castiglione di Sicilia, considered one of the most beautiful Borgo in Italy, this small medieval town stands between the Etna Park and the Alcantara Valley.
