Etna Bike Tour

Sicily Bike Tourist Service offers… Etna Bike Tour
The way of the Cyclops by bike…

Discovering in Bikes lesser known roads… but full of sweat and toil.
Cycling tours, along a different itinerary from usual... you forget the main roads… and you fill your muscles of toil.
Itinerary
Starting by bike from our headquarters in Catania… from the sea to the Etna volcano, we will go to the discovery of the famous Catanese coast… warming our muscles between seaside villages and mythological places… as Acitrezza. After the coast the tour really gets underway, from now on, only climbs are waiting for us, we will search by bike the hardest climbs on the southern side of the Etna volcano… along secondary roads, asphalted, rough and dirt, unknown to many, with slopes that will reach even 25%, all to get to by bike up to Zafferana Etnea (600mt, slm about), charming town of chief town Etneo, rich in history and folklore, where we will stop to regain our strength, maybe tasting a good Sicilian Pizza (not included in the price).

The return will take us on a bike along the southwest slope of the Etna volcano, in the direction of the coastal villages, along a different route from the one used for the outward journey.
The cycling itinerary will develop along most of our secondary roads, they will not be missing off-road sections (easy to travel) and rough roads with pavè.
This is a cycling tour different from the usual… that is born just to test you, do not be mislead by the altitude of the place of arrival (Zafferana Etnea), just 600 metersabove sea level, because it really is the way in which we will arrive at this altitude that will put you to test hard, with climbs that will also touch the 25% slope, in roads often with uneven ground.

A JOURNEY BEYOND

A JOURNEY BEYOND II

Etna Mountain Bike Tour

Sicily Bike Tourist Service offers… Etna Mountain Bike Tour

Etna and Mountain Bike, unique combination.
Etna Mountain Bike Tour, MTB excursion on the Altomontana (Etna south/west about 2.000mt), with a visit to the cave of Nunziata Mount .
Itinerary
From Piano Vetore (Etna South about 1700mt) we will head in MTB along a path “off road” easy and with few technical and physical difficulties, called Pista Altomontana. We will guide you in one of the most “unique” scenarios of our beloved Etna, with stops at Galvarina Hut (1879mt) and Palestra Mount (1917mt), then continue the tour also passing by the famous Pagghiaru (hut once used as shelter for the shepherds of the area). The tour will continue until the cave of Mount Nunziata(1803mt) formed after the eruption of 1843, whose entrance is a steep slide and subject to landslides, which then turns into a vertical of about 7mt and gives access to a gallery of lava flow.
After the visit, we will return on our steps, but if the guide it deems appropriate will add a bit of vivacity to the tour, using variants suited to your technical and physical skills; however, making sure that the maximum total duration of the tour (pedaling) is about 3 hours.

Technical specifications of the MTB tour: The difference in level not excessive, it would enable him to be entered in the category of Mountain Bike Easy tours, but this is not possible, because the route used for the return (in principle equal to the first leg) it is characterized by a climbing that, from the cave of Nunziata Mount up to the refuge of Palestra Mount, could put in trouble some cyclist not fully trained.We remind you that our MTB tours are usable ONLY with exclusive booking (we don’t perform tours of groups of people unrelated to each other), this means that the guide in charge of the service will not put any pressure on the timing. The elements indicated above are indicative and useful to make you aware of the difficulty of the trail.
We recommend this route to cyclists who want a MTB tour on the volcano Etna not too challenging, and who want to enjoy the scenarios that these places can offer, without necessarily going to the test.


Type of route: XC/Trail.
Path: Medium difficulty, 100% Off Road.
KM and duration of the Tour: Km 20/25 (approximately, based on the solutions adopted by the guide for the return, choice based mainly on your physical and technical abilities), total 5 hours (approx.), 2 hours (approximately) Pick-Up service to and from your hotel, and 3 hours max (approximately) of pedaled ride.
Prices:
* € 65.00 – 1 participant (exclusive reservation of the Tour).
* € 50.00 – each person, for a minimum of 2 participants for a maximum of 4 participants (exclusive reservation of the Tour).
For more than 4 participants, quote on request.
20% discount on the cost of the Tour, with a minimum of 2 participants, only applicable to online reservations (E-Mail or WhatsApp) at least 15 days before the date chosen for the tour.
