On the Alcantara Trail, you'll be given a wetsuit so you can swim through the deeper waters of the gorge. Check online for overview of guided tours, resort rates, events, and activities.

    Great cooling in the hot weather! Best not go on the weekend, because it gets too crowded. Choose watching and "Local" access. cost only a small fraction (approximately 1.50 per person) can be found outside of the large parking lot. Easy mountain high.

    We decided to go with the Green Sports Association Sicily for Tubby Body Rafting in the Gorges of Alcantara. Their cage is located 250 m from the main car park. It was a great experience ... Dude knew how to guide us with patience and passion due to small number of group that generally form (maximum 10 persons). It wasn't anything scary, otherwise fascinating is always assisted by a competent Guide! Highly recommended!

    They serve 13 euros to enter the Park the Gorges of Alcantara. And talking just 1.50 to go down (and up) the 228 steps leading to the Gorges themselves. To find what? A scuffle at all and no service (what are these gorges?, that natural surroundings convey? ...) This is mass tourism, useful only to those who run it.
