If cycling and adventure is your daily bread, join us for a mountain bike tour for expert cyclists on the most active volcano in Europe: Mount Etna.
You can choose between 2 different routes. Pick-up included from Catania.
Etna Trail (Full day)
Trail length: approx. 35 km.
Ascent: 1000 m.
Leaving from Milia, the Forest Park entrance at an altitude of 1,700m, you will go on a discovery of the South side of Etna, where the trails are characterised by volcanic ash and lava stone. You will follow the track towards Rifugio Galvarina, one of the most fascinating places with its exceptional view of the Western side of Etna, at approx. 1,900 m. It almost seems to be the Dolomites... You will then descend, taking hairpin bends in the volcanic ash, towards Monte Lepre at altitude 1,500m, where you will have a pause to enjoy the stunning landscape. The next stop is Case Zampini,a forestry refugee hidden away in a picturesque wood where you can have a lunch break. From there you will start the climb back up to the departure point. It's a very challenging route, only for well-prepared cyclists.
Etna High Altitude Trail (Half Day)
Trail length: approx. 20 km.
Ascent: 700 m.
You will follow the "Altomontana" trail, of volcanic ash and lava stone, where the landscapes will truly leave you speechless. From Rifugio Galvarina the trail gets tough - time for the Mountain Bike fanatics to show off their skills. You will descend 500 metres on challenging trails, single tracks, trails of lava stone and volcanic ash, before then climbing again to an altitude of 1,700 m. A tricky but incredible route.
