Dissected by the Alcantara river, Alcantara Park is a location brimming with unique vegetation, lava rock formations, and columnar basalts formed by the icy waters of the Alcantara.

Danke an Massimo und Konstanza unsere Guidesdie Reise entspricht der Beschreibung. Voll erlebnisreich und ist sehr beeindruckend. Kleine Gruppen ist sehr schön, keine Massen Abfertigung. Der kleine Stop am Honig/Wein und Olivenöl Hof war nicht störend, eher sehr angenehm. 2 Touren in 1 Tour gepackt ist anstrengend, aber im Alcantara Park sehr angenehm enden. Die Zeit dort, muss nicht so sehr lang sein. Vielen Dank für den schönen Tag. Vielleicht klappt es mal wieder

Wir wurden direkt von der Wohnung abgeholt, Transport war rechtzeitig da. Dann ging es los auf Etna. Der Guide war super nett und kompetent. Nach der Mittagspause mussten wir mit anderem Guide nach Alkantara-Park. Die Kommunikation mit dem war erschwert, da er nur italienisch und spanisch konnte, aber auch ganz nett und geduldig war. Dort hatten wir einfach eine Stunde Freizeit für Alcantara- Schlucht. Transport zurück war auch bis zur Haustür.

Esperienza molto bella. Non siamo stati tanto fortunati nel tempo, poiché la giornata è iniziata con un temporale, ma ci hanno telefonato e hanno spostato il tour di 30 minuti. Molto disponibili, sono venuti a prenderci davanti al portone dove soggiornava mo. La guida si è privata dei propri sandali per prestarlì ad una signora che ne era sprovvista per poter camminare tra le gole dell'Alcantara. Il mezzo utilizzato per il trasporto era un po' vecchio, e questo ha reso non proprio comodissimo il viaggio. Questa piccola nota negativa però, non pregiudica la fantastica esperienza che abbiamo avuto. La consiglio a tutti
