Body Rafting Alcantara Gorges, the ‘Cascade of Venus’

The Alcantara Gorges are a real spectacle of nature, and offer a  breathtaking adventure for visitors to Sicily. 

Explore one of Eastern Sicily’s geological wonders, the Alcantara Gorges, with an exhilarating body rafting experience through ancient canyon walls. The adventure starts with traversing a stretch of river channelled into an imposing basalt gorge over 30 metres high. The rushing water has formed unique rock shapes  over thousands of years. The hike continues along the canyon, where waterfalls, rapids and rock faces are part of the trail. The visit to the ‘Cascade of Venus’ where legend has it that the Goddess of beauty Venus loved to relax and swim, is part of a never-to-be forgotten experience!
