What you'll do

We will meet at a trusted farm, where once we have introduced ourselves and made a small briefing on the scheduled activities, we will move with our vehicle (minivan) towards the starting point of our ArckeoTrekking itinerary. We will live an authentic "exploratory" experience in search of the traces and signs of the ancient "civilizations" that inhabited and contributed to create the fascinating "myth" of the Akesines River Valley. (Alcantara). If it is the "adventure" you are looking for with us you have found it!
In conclusion, upon advance request, you can enjoy a "Sicilian" lunch at the appropriate facilities or, agree with us a "picnic" based on the best local products, to be enjoyed strictly in the open air.
The costs of the "picnic" or the "lunch" are extra, the price fluctuates around 20 € per person!

Where you'll be

The proposed itineraries have been developed to best express the Naturalistic and Cultural aspects of an unknown Sicily located in the Alcantara valley. It is not possible for me to describe all places, each of the paths, contains stories and shows elements that characterize it, natural areas frequented and lived since ancient times, rocky environments, scenic panoramic points and breathtaking landscapes are the frame of my Tours.
