Mount Etna’s Summit on E-Bikes
A unique experience: the climb to the summit of the highest active volcano in Europe on our super reliable and comfortable Giant e-bikes!
Starting from the Pineta Ragabo, the oldest and most splendid pine tree woods on Etna, we begin our climb on the asphalt road that leads to Piano Provenzana.
We will then take an off-road track, with the characteristic volcanic soil of sand and rock, through a unique territory for an unforgettable experience on your mountain bike.
As we go up with greater ease on the e-bike, the vegetation starts to disappear and it will feel like you are definitely riding on the Moon. We will go across old and recent lava fields, pass by the 2002 eruption craters, and reach the volcanological observatory at almost 10.000 feet high.
Mount Etna is a living mountain that breathes. Often you find yourself pedalling and hearing in the background the powerful “voice” of the volcano that accompanies cyclists towards the arrival at altitude.
Once on the top, the view is incredible, from Calabria (Italy mainland) to the South of Sicily and the Ionian Sea.
The downhill will be a mix of adrenaline and fun: 25 km to the village of Milo, through sandy trails, thick pine forests, lava stone mountain huts and chestnuts woods.
At the end of the ride, a refreshing almond granita is a must to finish off a great day of cycling and a unique experience.
