River Trekking in the Alcantara Gorges
Water trekking is an exciting walk against the current in the cold water of Alcantara river. A way to admire from the bottom of the canyon the amazing columnar basalts of the Alcantara gorges. Thanks to the support of our guides, who will explain you the historical and scientific characteristics of this corner of Sicily, you will appreciate the delicate balance of the river ecosystems.
The experience we propose you is a way to live the river without any meditation, an experience that let you familiarize with the natural elements, walking between water and sky, between air and fire, surrounded by the only indestructible element: the rock.
