The Outdoor Experience

Fontanamara is an ideal area for hillwalkers and those interested in more challenging walking routes, as the surrounding region consists of many beautiful valleys and hills which provide ample hiking opportunities at varying levels of difficulty. The town in itself has plenty of different routes throughout, where people can enjoy a safe and leisurely stroll day or night.

There are plenty of waking routes to experience but perhaps none as spectacular as those found on and around Mt. Etna, which at 3380m is the highest volcano in Europe. Tracks run alongside ancient archaeological sites and castles. Some tracks in this area are rough and unworn for those seeking adventure, whilst others are comfortable underfoot for a more relaxing walk. For guests who prefer adventure on two wheels, mountain bike tracks of all difficulties are scattered throughout the surrounding areas.

After a busy day of exploration visitors can relax in Fontanamara sports complex. This state of the art facility features plenty of comfortable lounge chairs dotted around an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, and an on-site pizzeria and bar. While you wait for your dinner at the end of your long day of activity up in the mountains and down into the valleys why not unwind over a glass of locally grown red or white wine, accompanied by local appetizers while the sun sets over the rolling hills and winding valleys below.
