Body Rafting Alcantara Gorges


Alcantara River Park Adventure

The Alcantara Gorges are one of the geological wonders of eastern Sicily. Explore them through an amazing body rafting excursion along the scenic canyon walls is one of the funniest ways.


The adventure begins with the ascent of a stretch of river channelled into an imposing basalt gorge more than 30 meters high, which over thousands of years due to the water erosion has been shaped into unique forms that leave amazed even the most demanding hikers.


With the continued hike in the canyon, the trail becomes more difficult, so there is a minimum physical ability and spirit of adventure to overcome natural obstacles (waterfalls, rapids and rock faces) who are internal.


One of the most popular destinations within the Alcantara Gorges is definitely the cascade of Venus, where legend has it that the Goddess of beauty Venus loved to spend her days to relax and swim.


The ascent of the Gorge canyon requires a minimum of skill to overcome natural obstacles placed along the path.
