Holiday lettings in Sicily for adventures on land

If you thought Sicily was all about beaches and Greek ruins, think again. The island’s incredibly diverse landscape can be enjoyed in all sorts of ways that are guaranteed to appeal to the more adventurous members of your party.
 

Mount Etna and Sicily’s Mountains >>

Quad bike excursions on Mount Etna, through the Madonie Park and through the valley of the Alcantara river gorge are a fun way to explore Sicily’s more rugged terrain. Half-day tours can also be organised in the west of the island, taking in striking views of the temple at Segesta.

If you prefer to let someone else take the wheel, an off-road jeep tour through the Nebrodi Mountains allows you to combine a spot of hiking with a personalised journey through the mountainous terrain, pausing at lakes or finding a hidden spot for an impromptu barbecue. Alternatively, half or full-day jeep tours of Mount Etna transport you across the slopes of the ancient crater to the most breath-taking views across the dramatic Valle del Bove.
 

Fun for all ages >>

Walking and hiking are popular activities in the Madonie Park but if the kids are looking for some extra excitement, zip wires, tree climbing and picnics are all on offer at the Parco Avventura.  For something a little more active but still suitable for all the family, a half-day canyoning excursion along the dry river bed of the Alcantara is a thrilling adventure for everyone.
