1. From Catania: Hydrospeed at the Alcantara Gorges
A unique fun, pure adrenaline in the rapids of this fascinating basalt canyon, where you can combine this amazing sport with the wonderful natural setting of the Alcantara Park Nature Reserve. Arriving at the Alcantara Gorges River Park aboard our mini-van, and after a short briefing in which you will be given information on how to carry out the activity, you will set off towards the starting point of this adventure. You will continue wearing the technical equipment that we will provide you, and then launch yourself along the descent of the river. Hydrospeed is a discipline that is practiced through the use of a small bob with a dual function: both for buoyancy and for protection against shocks along the descent. You will then carry out the descent of the river in complete safety, equipped with a bob, neoprene wetsuit, helmet and life jacket you will be ready for this adrenaline rush, a descent in which the river bed changes constantly, from large spaces with a fairly slow descent, at times of faster descent, icy rapids and jumps between the basaltic conformations. A truly unique experience that will allow you to enjoy, in addition to the adrenaline of the rapids, also the wonderful natural views of this fantastic park. A canyon carved into the basalt by the incessant erosion of the river, its crystal clear waters, its pristine landscapes, where Mediterranean scrub and native fauna live unchallenged and preserved by human action.
