What you'll do

Our “Body rafting- river trekking” in the Alcantara gorges is and exciting experience in touch with the forces of the nature and the river. An experience created for the adventure lovers, for those who want to know better themselves thanks to the confrontation with the natural elements, surrounded by water, air, fire and earth combined in just one millenary element: “the rock”. The first part is the river trekking. It is a path along and in the river, we are going to use different techniques to go up the river, including trekking techniques and basic climbing and swimming techniques. Moreover, for those who want to try something more exciting, there is also the possibility to dive. When we will reach the famous waterfall called “Lacus Venĕris” (Venus’ lake) and after a short briefing of our guide about the position your going to use to ride the currents the second part of our experience will start, the body rafting experience. Let yourself go with the river flow, dive into emerald green pool and slide on the cold Alcantara water surrounded by the spectacular basalt columnar prisms. You will ride small rapids becoming one with this incredible canyon.

Hello, my name is Francesco, your guide. I cannot describe myself, for this reason, I’m going to show you the feedbacks of our customers:
We trusted in Ciccio (Short for Francesco), who exited our curiosity, because it was clear that he wasn’t going to sell us a simple excursion, but the chance to live a special experience . Our decision to choose him as guide was completely worthy. He put a lot of professionality and passion in everything he does. (Andrea)
Thank you for this experience that was unique! Thanks to Ciccio, the excursion was a wonderful experience concerning to the physical, the emotional and the mental aspects. And it was good fun for real! (Monica)

Where you'll be

We will meet up at “Agripark” agritourism. After we will have worn the technical equipment, we will go by foot to the entry of the fantastic Alcantara gorges river park. The huge, black and grey walls made of columnar basalt will be the natural setting of your adventure. The cold and clear water of this river will guide us to the waterfalls. After we will reach Venus’ lake, we will dive in the water to let ourselves be driven by the currents.

(1) gorge is breathtaking, a must-see, (2) this is really the best way to see it, and (3) Francesco and Roberto were the perfect guides - friendly guides with real expertise.

This was one of the best things we experienced in Sicily during our one week stay. The gorges were so beautiful, the activity was fun and original and our guides, Roberto and Ciccio, were so perfect. They both knew the gorges extremely well so we felt really safe. They were taking pictures of us along the activity so we could keep a souvenir of it. I cannot stress how enjoyable this activity was and you should definitely book with Roberto and Ciccio if you decide to do body rafting.

This is an amazing experience. There is no better way to experience the beautiful nature of the canyon and it is absolutely safe. It’s also tons of fun and really doesn’t require any particular physical preparation. The crew is extremely helpful; they will explain you everything and also help you out on the way; you will also get some really cool pictures of yourselves. Absolutely worth it!

A great experience. They were friendly, knowledgeable and made sure everyone in our small group got the most out of the experience. We witnessed another tour company going by and they definitely got much less attention and consideration from their guide. Definitely go with Francesco & co!

Francesco and Roberto were AMAZING! They made our group feel totally safe and in control the whole time we were with them. They are both personable and super fun to be around. They also have a passion for nature and this gorge. They will not take you on this excursion if they don't feel it's safe and you can tell they know what they are doing. I would not hesitate to book another adventure with these 2! They take safety very seriously, so you may see other body rafting excursions that are cheaper but I would pay the extra cost to work with these guys! They take small groups out and really make sure to keep everyone safe and having fun the whole time you are with them! They also take pictures for you so you will have a great documentation of the experience! If you have time while you are in Sicily book this adventure! (Also, meeting place is not at the main entrance to gorge, you meet at a smaller entrance before the main entrance, down the road.)
