We are Luca and Rossella, we share a passion for nature and sport.
For years we have been organizing mountain bike excursions on the Etna Volcano, Alcatara and Simeto rivers, and all the neighboring areas.
Luca is a national MTB guide ( AMI/UISP certified, and technical manager at Sicily Bike Tourist Service ), who, driven by his strong organizational skills and love for the territory, has been organizing mountain bike tours for years, and knows Mom Etna as his pockets.
I, Rossella, love to interface with people and especially with tourists... my passion is to share our beloved land with those who have the desire to discover it and enjoy the spectacular landscapes it offers.

I can’t recommend this experience enough. If you’re into cycling/MTB it’s a must! I only briefly met Rossella, but she helped to organise everything and was very helpful in answering all my questions. Luca, the instructor, is wonderful - incredibly friendly and caring, with huge knowledge about the area, cycling and many other topics which we discussed during the trip which, together with the beauty of Etna, made it so great. The route itself was fantastic - quite varied, with some steeper climbs and cool downhills afterwards. I’d definitely do it again if I had enough time!
