Discover Mount Etna and Alcantara Gorge

This full-day trip is among the best Mount Etna tours available from Taormina. Sicily Active will take you to visit two of Sicily's most iconic places; the stunning Alcantara Canyon plowed by a crystal water river and the highest active volcano in Europe. This Etna tour packs in a single day an easy hike to the beautiful Sartorius craters, a visit to an Etna lava Cave, and after lunch, a tour to the Alcantara River Park and the stunning canyon. Here we will walk inside the first hundred meters of this impressive Gorge to marvel at the high canyon walls displaying some fantastic shapes. Who feels like, can enjoy a refreshing swim or chill out by the river banks. Etna half-day tours are also available.
