Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After being picked up from your Messina hotel or cruise port in time for an 8.30am, 10.30am, or 12.30pm departure (depending on option selected), set out on the around 1-hour journey to the Alcantara Gorge.
On arrival, follow your guide on a leisurely hike along part of the gorge, following forest tracks and rocky trails, and wading through low passages of the Alcantara River (waterproof clothing is available to hire if necessary). Along the way, stop to admire the scenery, looking up at the steep canyon walls and passing numerous lakes, waterfalls, and unique rock formations. After working up a sweat, cool off with a swim in a natural lake.
On the way back, pay a visit to the mountain village of Taormina, where you’ll have time to grab lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant, browse the shops, or enjoy the views from the mountaintop.
Back in Messina, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or cruise port around 3.30pm, 5.30pm, or 7.30pm (depending on departure time).
