Gorges cut by ancient lava flows make for ideal trekking at Gole Alcantara Terralcantara. Cold-water springs rush through the gorge's floor, so wear nonslip shoes and clothes that can get wet. 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. The area features three romantic country resorts: Il Borgo, La Casa Delle Monache, and the Poggio.

  • Beautiful ravine but go very early. You can with the elevator but what's even more fun is to 500 meters by walking and then you can with the steps (free). We were there to 09:00 hours and then it's there quite nicely. I can imagine with a lot of people that it is too small to look good to enjoy. PS water is cold:)

  • It is not possible to describe the beauty and uniqueness of this place. The cool, clear waters of the River a pleasure in these days of excruciating hot. It is advisable to bring shoes to tires to rocks. Pedestrian access much cheaper than where we descend with elevator; from the parking lot to succeed on the road and turn left walk for 100 meters. The descent is very convenient.

  • Excessive ticket price to be a nature reserve. Inside the park there are plastic animals in my opinion useless, probably to justify the cost of the ticket. The lift down the throats may be needed for those who cannot walk, but they can't force anyone to use it. There are also stairs but to use them you pay for another ticket. Much of the Gorge is closed to the public and the mandatory is strongly limiting. In a nutshell they privatized a wonder of nature and have made a nice round of money. Nothing short of a disgrace!
