Family outing in the Alcantara gorge

During your stay in Sicily, you will have many occasions to relax to nature. Start by discovering the incredible landscape provided by the Alcantara gorge.

The small Sicilian Alcantara River, between the Etna in the south and the Nebrodi and Peloritani peaks in the north, flows directly into the Ionian Sea. Volcanic activities in the region have shaped the impressive Alcantara gorges, where curiously-shaped rock formations and unexpected landscapes are aplenty. The 10-metre high narrow basalt columns will dazzle you.
For adventurers, there are canyoning possibilities with a network of streams, rock and waterfalls. You can also swim in some sections of the Alcantara, or simply let the river carry you. Revel in the spectacle of incredible crystal clear waters, ubiquitous oleanders on the riversides and orange groves everywhere. Beware though, the water may be a little cold!
