Etna Mountain Bike Tours by Sicily Bike Tourist Service

Sicily Bike Tourist Service offers… Etna Mountain Bike Tours

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.
