The history of Mt. Etna is not only that of the most active volcano in Europe, but it’s also the history of Eastern Sicily itself. A bike ride through the Sicilian hinterland, in the shade of mighty Etna and among extraordinary national parks, it’s a journey that shifts between history and mythology to the discovery of enchanting tiny villages and foregone flavours. This tour of medium difficulty will allow you to visit Taormina, the ‘pearl of the Ionian sea’, the mediaeval village of Randazzo, Castiglione di Sicilia, which lies on the Valley of Alcantara and the Baroque seaside town of Acireale. You will visit some of the most spectacular national parks of the island such as Mt. Etna national park, Alcantara national park and Forre Laviche del Simeto nature reserve. Our tours are designed for those who love to travel with some autonomy but also enjoy a range of services which will make our guests’ cycling holiday comfortable and unique.
