The Sicily Off Road bike tour takes us through the three largest regional parks in Sicily: the Madonie Mountains, with their almost Dolomite styile peaks; Nebrodis, wrapped in thick and mysterious forests; and Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.
We have created an amazing, one of a kind tour on the magnificent Italian island of Sicily. We have linked some of the most interesting trails from the beach of Cefalu to the slopes of Mt.Etna.
The route will wind through forest tracks, paths covered with ashes, old military roads with ancient origins and fun single-track in the dense forest of Mount Etna.
It will be a very challenging ride from a physical point of view, with an elevation gain that will exceed 10,000 metres in about 330 kilometres, but there will be long descents like the one we will enjoy the last day: from 3,100 metres of elevation on top of Etna to 600 mt of Zafferana Etnea, our final destination!
We will stay in a variety of wonderful accommodation: from hotels by the sea and huts in the woods, to farms near typical villages, where we will enjoy good food and great Sicilian hospitality.
