Private Tour of Alcantara Gorges Natural Reserve

Including Food and Wine Tasting in Giardini Naxos

During this private tour by comfortable air-conditioned car, you will visit Sicilian natural phenomenon - Alcantara Gorges National Reserve. This tour is private - only for your party, nobody else, to ensure the highest standards for our clients, and includes pickup and drop-off at your accommodation or port in Taormina area, Catania or Messina.


Several thousand years ago, the river Alcantara's bed was blocked by a lava flow from Mount Etna. As the lava was cooled much more quickly by the water than it would have done otherwise, it crystallized in the form of columns. Over the next millennia, the river naturally eroded a channel through these columns, resulting in impressive gorges and ravines.


During the private tour to Gole Alcantara, you will see the unique columns, swim in cool water of the river, take sun bath on the rocks, and visit the Alcantara park relaxation area. While you admire unique nature of Alcantara National Park, your friendly private English speaking guide will explain you about the origin of this natural phenomenon, about Etna and Sicily itself.


After this refreshing experience, your guide will chauffeur you to a charming seaside town of Giardini Naxos - first Greek colony in Sicily. You will visit one of the best wine bars and have delicious and hearty food and wine tasting. You will taste different types of Sicilian Etna DOC red and white wines with locally produced organic food - cheeses, salami, prosciutto, bresaola, olives, mushrooms, extra virgin olive oil and fresh bread.
