View of Alcantara Gorges


The Etna & Alcantara Tour combines some of the most suggestive places of the volcano and in the same day, a full day, the famous Alcantara Gorges.

We will admire its old, extinct craters at an altitude of 2000 meters and amazing views of the Ionian Coast, from Taormina to Catania. Learn about its birth, structure, eruptions and more. 

Next, equipped with helmets and lights, we’ll venture inside a Lava Tube, revealing the hidden wonders beneath the surface. Additionally, we’ll capture the breathtaking beauty of the Valle del Bove, a testament to nature’s power and beauty.

After Mt. Etna, we will go to the Gole dell’ Alcantara (Gorges of the Alcantara River) where we will admire the amazing shapes of volcanic basalt formed around 3000 years ago.
