Alcantara river

Alcantara river is one of the most important rivers of Sicily.

Its headwater is 1250 meters meters above sea level and it runs for about 50 km through the valley that divides the Etna from Nebrodi and Peloritani mountain chains.

The river has eroded and shaped a wide-ranging and moody geological landscape, where during the centuries the romans, the greeks, the byzantines, the arabs, the normans, the angevins and the aragons have lived.

Along this river it is possible to hike through unique and amazing routes where you can find a fascinating and rich flora and fauna.
