Alcantara Gorge, Sicily

3.4
#18 of 41 in Nature in Sicily
Alcantara Gorge is a perfect place to swim, wade, and explore nature. You can view the gorge from above, walking among the lemon and orange trees, or you can descend to the bottom. If you plan on swimming, take a suit and sunscreen, as the sunlight gets quite strong in the area. There is also an elevator down to the water, so visitors who are physically challenged can enjoy it as well. Use our Motta Camastra trip builder to add Alcantara Gorge and other attractions to your Motta Camastra vacation plans.

    Thanks to TripAdvisor we chose the entrance hall, a few steps from the parking lot, not advertised but that with some tread (minutes, 200 steps maximum) you get to throats. The route and the same as who pays €13, the only difference is an elevator which we found unnecessary. The Gorges are an experience to do, the water is very cold but after awhile you get used to it, having regard to the very high temperature of the day was a lifesaver. Excursions (which can also be bought at the entrance hall) seemed a little fiddly if you find relaxing, the wet suit (a bit jaded) and the equipment seemed awkward and cumbersome. But probably for hikers is a nuisance acceptable.

    A spectacular place, a triumph of nature, we were there in early August and chose the municipal €1.5 path entry per person. Fair. Down a few stairs and we ended up in this stream we climbed on foot with non-slip shoes and costume. freezing water but after the first crash after about 100 metres gets hot. The tours cost too much and pooco arrived ahead of us. Don't go with children. Give only annoyance

    Not far from garden Naxos is a great excursion to do for who loves the river and the throat, rather sporty, but also fun for kids price 1.50 euro anyone to access the stairs so no lift but more expensive about 13 euro after depending on physical possibility either bath in the water at 15 degrees with children and all the world is equipped with shoe we go up river for a breathtaking landscape! Possibility to have on-site but paid guide.
