With this excursion Etna and Gole Alcantara which will start in an SUV or minivan (up to 8 people) with an off road up to the lava front of 2002, we will cross the Ragabo pine forest. Then proceed to the starting point of the trek and our excursion will continue on foot. It will start at an altitude of 1650 meters and will reach an altitude of 1700 meters. Before starting the descent, we will visit the thieves cave, a lava flow tunnel where - equipped with helmets and torches - we will go inside to discover its formation and its history. We will stop in a mountain chalet for lunch (included in the price). After lunch, crossing Castiglione di Sicilia, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, we will reach the Alcantara Gorges located in the Alcantara valley also called Larderia Gorges where the Peloritani mountain range ends in the Municipalities of Castiglione di Sicilia and Motta Camastra (one of the places where the Godfather was filmed).
