Walking along the Gurne D’Alcantara is definitely worth your effort. Stunning views, nice pick nick area’s and a challenging but not too challenging walk make this a walk to remember! I highly recommend it!

We tracked for about 30-40 mins only to find all the access to the river and rockpools has been closed off. It looked lovely, and the scenery is worth a walk alone. But with hot small kids desperate for a dip in the river, it...More

This is so worthy a visit. Take a walk in the beautiful nature around it and take a swim in the really cold pools. Beautiful waterfalls around and the rocks surrounding it. The water is totally clear but really cold

The trail goes around a mountain peak and by the river and it takes almost 2,5 with kids and photos. Easy walking except the steeper part where the path wasn't that beaten and full of weeds. By the way recommended for the families

As a substitute for a cloudy, wet and cold vulcano (Etna was no option) in an area with nothing else to do, it's an excellent place to go! For one hour or so... But the entrance fee is kinda pricy...(€10, for stones and river..)

Definetly worth visiting this place. I was hesitant with this review as it might trigger more people to this place. The beautiness of this place is because there are not so many people.
