Price from



3 h



Immersive experience on muscular Mountain Bike with strong emotions, that immerses you in the majestic landscapes of Etna volcano.

Riding the muscular MTB, you will seem to live an unparalleled adventure between difficult climbs and dizzying descents; you will have the pleasure of discovering the South West side of Etna, characterized by paths in lava sand and lava sciara, where you will feel the taste of an experience with a unique flavor, immersed in the paths that extend on old lava flows enriched by the wonderful secular trees.

Etna in Mountain Bike is the desire of every cyclist who loves adventure in unspoiled nature, for get involved and challenge their skills! 

Start Point from Piano Vetore, where we will we will leave with our MTB for a circular tour. We will immediately enter the heart of the Mountain Bike tour, after a short transfer on an undemanding path, which will lead us to tackle the first real tough climb of the day.

We will pedal in a dense wood, typical of this area, which will ultimately give us the thrill of a fantastic and short single track in the middle of a wonderful lava flow and then a quick descent towards Pista Altomontana, an easy path, which we will pedal until we reach the first step towards Galvarina hut (approximately 1.850 mt), where we will stop for a short break. Once the stop is over, we will continue by Mountain Bike along a fast descent path characterized by sandy and technical hairpin bends towards Monte Gallo (approximately 1.560 mt). Once the descent is over and the adrenaline has been released, the test will become really tough, it will be time to test ourselves again with climbs at the limit of adhesion and with exhausting slopes typical of Etna, interspersed with fast and fun trails, which we will face with technique and in complete safety among the old lava flows full of loose stones and lava slides. We will continue up to 1.750 mt of Piano Vetore, where our MTB experience will come to an end.
