We are in one of the most suggestive places in the world. On our mountain bikes, we will cross clockwise ¾ of the majestic Etna volcano, from south to east, to discover the many different landscapes that only Etna can offer us. About 35 km of off-road vehicles on dirt, lava paths, breathtaking trails and spectacular landscapes to welcome us. Immediately after the welcome briefing, checking and setting up the mountain bikes, we will leave early in the morning from the Ariel refuge (1700m above sea level), the last location where it will be possible to have breakfast and refuel before entering the woods. From there we will begin our crossing by first covering a partly paved track that will take us in a few kilometers to reach an altitude of 1960m above sea level (ref. Galvarina). Once we arrive at this first destination we will stop for about 10 ‘, we will take some photos and consult the map of Etna to take stock of the situation and count the kilometers traveled. After our break we return to the saddle more loaded than before, this time to travel through a wonderful landscape dotted with pines, birches and other vegetation typical of the location that hosts us. We may have the opportunity to meet some Etnean fox who are now friends with us bikers. After crossing the wooded part, we will go up on a lava path where there is no vegetation and we will have the opportunity to see the villages of Adrano, Bronte, Maletto, Randazzo, the Alcantara valley and Linguaglossa. Back on asphalt after having crossed the Ragabo pine forest, we will climb the panoramic Mareneve for about 3.5 km towards 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 coast. ionica until reaching the city of Zafferana Etnea, where we left the cars in the morning
