Mountain bike
lovers, are you ready to zoom around the trails and dirt roads that run along the Simeto, the most important river of Sicily? The Simeto, approximately 110 km long, is the natural habitat of hundreds of marine and land species and has as its backdrop the picturesque landscape of Mount Etna.

You can choose between 2 different trails.

Simeto oasis trail - Half Day
Trail length: approximately 20 km.
Elevation: almost nothing.
You will be on the discovery of the Simeto river, following its bank by mountain bike. The largest of the Sicilian rivers, it has a catchment area of 4000 square kilometres, including the provinces of Catania, Enna and Messina. A tour for everyone, since it is almost completely flat, making it also suitable for families.

On the banks of the Simeto - Full Day
Trail length: approximately 65 km.
Elevation: 400 m.
On this more challenging trail you will climb the embankment of the Simeto river, on a simple dirt road that will take you from the hills to the castle of Baroness Poira, now ruins, located near Pietra Lunga, where you will stop for a picnic lunch. After the packed lunch you will set off on a typical mule trail, characterized by cobblestones and slabs reminiscent of the Dolomites, before finishing back on the banks of the river.

Pick-up: from your accommodation in Catania or the neighbouring municipalities. The pick-up takes place at 8:30 or 9:30. The return is expected for 13:30 or 14:30 for the half day tour. For the full day tour 5:30 in the afternoon.
