Full description
Step off the beaten path and visit an ancient farmhouse in the Sicilian countryside. After hotel pick–up, head to Etna slope and admire the scenery of the Sicilian countryside, Mediterranean Sea and mountains. 

Arrive at a family–run 19th century farmhouse producing wines, dairy, meat, fruits and vegetables. Take a guided tour and admire picturesque vineyards. Move on to the stables and listen to a safety briefing before choosing a horse for your ride. Practice in the riding arena until you feel comfortable with your horse and learn basic commands to ensure control and confidence. Start your 1.5–hour horseback riding tour through the gorgeous greenery of Alcantara Natural Park with your experienced professional guide. Trot, canter or gallop through the captivating countryside as your guide explains about local flora and fauna.

After your horseback tour, feed your horse and revitalize with a delicious and hearty traditional lunch at the farmhouse. Taste locally produced fresh food, including cheeses, salami, prosciutto, traditional Sicilian relish, caponata and parmigiana, olives, mushrooms, vegetables, domestic olive oil and homemade bread with Etna red and white wines. Revitalized, return to your car and relax during the smooth journey back to your accommodation or port.
