Step off the beaten path and visit an ancient farmhouse in the Sicilian countryside. After hotel pick–up, head to Etna slope and admire the scenery of the Sicilian countryside, Mediterranean Sea and mountains. 

Arrive at a family–run 19th century farmhouse producing wines, dairy, meat, fruits and vegetables. Take a guided tour and admire picturesque vineyards. Move on to the stables and listen to a safety briefing before choosing a horse for your ride. 

Then, begin your one–hour horseback riding tour through the gorgeous greenery of Alcantara Natural Park with an experienced professional guide. Enjoy a relaxing day out in the captivating countryside as your guide explains the local flora and fauna.

After your horseback tour, feed your horse and revitalize with a delicious and hearty traditional lunch at the farmhouse.

Unfortunately the horseback riding was less than 1 hour and not 1,5 hours which allowed us only to go a short walk outside the ranch. The view of the landscape including the mount Etna was spectacular but for me not really a horse back riding really inside the national park. The team of the ranch was very friendly. The food at the Agritourismo was very good.

As a group of twenty-something’s we had a delightful time!

Had the absolute pleasure of meeting Marco who was our guide. Right of the bat I can tell you Marco’s a very kind man and we had no issue immediately getting along with him, his enthusiasm for the island is genuine and it shows. Hearing about the Etna and her surroundings was delightful, we even got some personalized tips of places to explore based on what we enjoyed seeing. Other than that the horses we’re very nice! I had a friend with me who’d never sat on a horse in their life and they had a wonderful time. (A.k.a. very beginner friendly) The lunch was traditional and homegrown with a wide array of well-matched flavors. I could definitely recommend this trip.

Jättetrevlig och duktig guide Roberto. Ridningen var under all kritik. Han som red med oss satt med mobiltelefon hela tiden och vi fick bara skritta på vägar runt vingården. Inte alls som på bilderna i annonsen. Väldigt god mat.
