Nature and relaxation
Horseback riding in one of the most exclusive eastern Sicily environments, among the wild nature of the Alcantara River Park. A fantastic adventure to live with your friends and spend a day full of fun.
The horseback ride in the Alcantara Valley mainly winds along the banks of the river, where through nature trails we will discover wildlife landscapes and ancient lava flows sculpted by the river that over the millennia have shaped the basaltic rock giving it unique and spectacular shapes.
On the way, we would visit famous Byzantine Cuba (a rural chapel where Cuba was built by Basilian monks starting from the 7th century) and then we will reach the small Castiglione Gorges, wherein the warmer months, it is possible to cool off in the cool waters of the river.
This horseback riding tour is accompanied by a specialized Engea equitable tourist guide and is suitable for all participants.
