Sicilian Trails SIT

Visiting: Italy
Trip Duration 8 Days
 

Walking in Sicily

Enjoy a week of walking in a diverse variety of scenic landscapes. Based in a simple family-run hotel in the seaside town of Giardini Naxos, we walk alongside the lava flows on iconic Mount Etna, take a ferry to the peaceful Aeolian island of Vulcano and ramble among the rock-cut tombs of the UNESCO-listed Pantalica Gorge. From Monte Venere we admire spectacular coastal views, while the lakes and uplands of Mount Nebrodi National Park are a verdant and isolated wilderness.

Tour Highlights

  • Mount Etna - Hike the other-worldly lava and pumice strewn landscapes of Europe's highest volcano
  • Aeolian Islands - Catch a ferry to the island of Vulcano and climb to the crater rim
  • Taormina and Syracusa - Time to explore the streets and ancient sites of these picturesque towns
  • Pantalica Gorge - Easy walking in a limestone gorge by an ancient UNESCO-listed necropolis
  • Nebrodi Mountains National Park - Discover one of Sicily's most untouched and wildest scenic places
