Mountain Biking Etna
the unique experience to live by MTB or E-Bike on the Etna volcano!
Mountain Biking on the Pista Altomontana (Etna south/west approximately 2.000 mt), with a visit to the cave of Monte Nunziata.
Discovering the charm of the haunting beauty of the Etna volcano, riding a MTB or E-Bike will lead you towards unparalleled emotions.
You will be free to choose whether to enjoy the Etna adventure on a muscular MTB or opt for the E-Bike and all this including the Pick-Up Service from our Meeting Point in Catania to Etna volcano, at no additional cost.
Starting from Piano Vetore (Etna South approximately 1.750 mt) we will practice Mountain Biking along a dirt path, called Pista Altomontana, which is easy to travel and has few technical and physical difficulties. We will take you towards one of the most evocative landscapes of our Etna volcano, with a stop at the Galvarina hut (1.850 mt) and monte Palestra (1.917 mt). We will continue the Mountain Biking experience passing by the famous Pagghiaru (hut once used by shepherds of the area as a shelter). Subsequently we will continue our ride until we reach the cave of Monte Nunziata (1.803 mt), formed after the eruption of 1843, whose entrance is a steep and landslide slide that turns into a vertical of about 7 mt and gives access to a lava flow tunnel.
