We are in one of the most evocative places in the world.

On the saddle of our mountain bikes, we will cross ¾ of the majestic Etna volcano clockwise, from South to East, to discover the many different landscapes that only Etna can give us. About 35 km of off-road dirt roads, lava trails, breathtaking trails, and spectacular landscapes welcome us.

Immediately after the welcome briefing, check, and adjustment of the mountain bikes, we will leave early in the morning from the Ariel refuge (1700m asl), the last location where it will be possible to have breakfast and refuel before entering the woods.

From there we will begin our crossing first along a partly paved track which will take us a few km to reach an altitude of 1960m above sea level (ref. Galvarina).
Once we reach this first destination we will stop for about 10 minutes, take some photos and consult the map of Etna to take stock of the situation and count the kilometers traveled. After our break we get back on the saddle more energized than before, this time to ride through a wonderful landscape dotted with pines, birches, and other typical vegetation of the location that hosts us. We may have the chance to meet some Etna foxes who are now friends with us bikers. After crossing the wooded part, we will climb a lava path where there is no vegetation and we will have the opportunity to see the towns of Adrano, Bronte, Maletto, Randazzo, the Alcantara Valley, and Linguaglossa.

Returning to the asphalt after crossing the Ragabo pine forest, we will climb the panoramic Mareneve for about 3.5 km in the direction of Piano Provenzana and then continue towards the Citelli refuge and from there begin the long descent of about 20km on asphalt with a view of the whole Ionian coast until we reach the city of Zafferana Etnea, where we left our cars in the morning.
