    What to Expect

    Step off the beaten path of standard Sicilian tours visiting an ancient farmhouse in Sicilian countryside. Your personal friendly English speaking guide will pick you up at your accommodation or port in Taormina or nearby towns, and in relax will chauffeurs you to Etna slope while you admire the scenery of the Sicilian countryside, Mediterranean Sea and mountains, as well as hardened Etna lava flows. This tour is private -- only for your party, nobody else, to ensure the highest standards for our guests.
    After 40 minutes ride you will arrive at a family run old milestone of 1800 year farmhouse producing wines, dairy, meat, fruits and vegetables. Here you will take a guided tour of the farmhouse, admire picturesque vineyards, oranges, lemons and olive plantations, and see many animals - sheep, cows, goats, deer, peacocks, wild boar, chickens, geese. Then you will arrive at the stables and listen to a safety briefing before selecting your horse. Practice in the riding arena until you feel comfortable with your horse and learn basic commands that ensure control and confidence. Then start your 1-hour horseback riding tour through the gorgeous greenery of one of the most majestic parks of Sicily – Alcantara Natural Park, with your experienced professional guide. Depending on your ability, trot, canter or gallop through the captivating countryside as your guide explains about local flora and fauna.
    After the horseback riding tour, feed your horse, and revitalize with a delicious and hearty traditional lunch at the farmhouse. Taste all locally produced fresh food – cheeses, salami, prosciutto, traditional Sicilian relish caponata and parmigiana, olives, mushrooms, vegetables, domestic olive oil and home-made bread with Etna red and white wines. Revitalized, return to your car and relax during the smooth journey back to your accommodation or port.
