Alcantara Gorge excursions

The Alcantara Gorges are one of Sicily’s main attractions. The gorges, formed by the lava flow of an ancient volcano, are a unique place in the world and offer visitors breathtaking views.

The Alcantara Gorges, a spectacular canyon
The Alcantara Gorges are a spectacular rocky canyon located in northeastern Sicily, about 40 km from Taormina. It is one of the most beautiful natural destinations in the region, offering an unforgettable travel experience.

The canyon was carved by an ancient volcanic river, which created a breathtaking landscape of limestone rocks and caves stretching for about 7 km. The depth of the canyon varies from a minimum of 5 meters to a maximum of 20 meters.

Frozen water flows inside the canyon. In fact, many activities in the water of the Alcantara Gorges are done in a diving suit.

What excursion to do in the Alcantara Gorges?
The Alcantara Gorge is a perfect destination for those who love nature and beauty. The canyon offers a variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, body rafting, canyoning, climbing and trekking. The main trail, which runs through the canyon, is dotted with ancient caves, waterfalls and breathtaking views.

If you are an adventure lover, then body rafting is the activity for you. On the other hand, if you just want to enjoy the beauty of the canyon and touch its icy waters, then it is best to choose a visit to the gorges with, for example, a jeep tour.

Visit the gorges on your own or with an activity?
For those who want to visit the Gorges independently, you can start from the town of Francavilla di Sicilia and follow the road signs leading to the Gorges. Once there, you can take a path that runs along the Alcantara River and enjoy the spectacular views of the gorges.

For those looking for a more adventurous experience, there are also several activities such as body rafting that can be organized at the Gorges. It always pays to make a reservation, because only with a reservation you have a guaranteed spot! That’s why choose Dreamisland as a starting point for your vacation in Sicily!
