E’ nostro piacere comunicare a tutti che dal mese di luglio 2022, Sicicla è diventata parte della grande ed importante famiglia di ATTA (Adventure Travel Trade Association). Questa nuova collaborazione è per noi un ulteriore slancio nella nostra mission di fare scoprire ai visitatori la Sicilia in maniera ecosostenibile.
Fondata nel 1990, l’Adventure Travel Trade Association è la più grande rete globale di leader di viaggi d’avventura. La comunità è composta da circa 30.000 tra guide individuali, tour operator, alberghi, consulenti di viaggio, enti turistici, organizzazioni di marketing e gestione delle destinazioni, educatori all’aperto, aziende di promozione e media di viaggio che condividono una convinzione e un impegno per il turismo sostenibile. Le connessioni e la creatività di questa vivace comunità si uniscono sia virtualmente che di persona per creare e fornire le soluzioni che spingono le singole attività e le comunità verso un futuro responsabile e redditizio.
I viaggi e il turismo costituiscono il più grande settore di servizi commerciali del mondo. Qualsiasi tipo di turismo ha un impatto significativo sul benessere economico delle persone e dell’ambiente. Dominato com’è da piccole imprese che lavorano in ambienti rurali o selvaggi, il turismo d’avventura è ancora più dipendente di altre forme di turismo dal capitale umano e naturale. La protezione e la promozione ponderata di queste risorse è cruciale non solo per il continuo successo dei viaggi d’avventura, ma anche per l’integrità sociale, culturale e ambientale di qualsiasi destinazione.
La comunità ATTA sostiene gli sforzi reali per affrontare le questioni associate al turismo e ai viaggi.
Promotion to travel to Sicily: what you need to know
Visiting Sicily and Palermo has never been so tempting, thanks to the See Sicily program!
See Sicily is a program promoted by the Tourism Department of the Sicilian Region and is designed to promote tourism in Sicily. To this end, anyone wishing to travel to Sicily is entitled to a free service package.
This means that for those who want to come to Sicily one night out of 3 spent in the accommodation facilities of the region is gifted! So get 3 and pay for 2!
The package also includes other facilitated services, such as guided excursions, entrances to parks and museums and transfers.
And if the trip starts by May 31, 2022, there is a 50% discount on the air ticket for national or international flights to Sicily!
Here at Sicicla we have several packages available that include the See Sicily offer, including the trip scheduled for Easter, so you don’t even have to inform yourself about how it works, we’ll take care of it!
Come and discover Palermo on a 5-day bicycle trip!

The environmental crisis we have been experiencing for some decades now, much more vast and dangerous than the health crisis of the past few months, is already destroying delicate balances and will have catastrophic repercussions on an economic and social point of view in the coming years.
A firm intervention, while keeping in mind the big picture, is necessary. Tourism can be a powerful tool to grant peace, cultural exchange, intellectual and spiritual growth of individuals and prosperity of the peoples.
At the same time, tourism is also one of the main causes of environmental and, in some cases, cultural decay.
For this reason, we feel it’s out duty, as citizens, entrepreneurs, workers, end users, travelers, to sign the Active and Sustainable Tourism Manifesto, which promotes:
The conservation of ecosystems and biodiversity, through activities inside Parks, Natural Reserves and Protected Areas.
Slow mobility: by bicycle, on foot and any non-motorized and eco-friendly vehicle (sail boat, horse, skis, snowshoes, etc.) are the best options to explore locally; trains and other public means of transport with low emissions are ideal for longer distances.
Exercise, that contributes to any individual’s physical and psychological well-being and, as a consequence, helps avoiding overloads on the public healthcare system.
Local agricultural and artisanal production, through visits and the getting acquainted with local products and producers. Promoting the short supply chain has a significant impact on lowering CO2 (and other gasses) emissions in the atmosphere, thus reducing the greenhouse effect. We also promote high quality, healthy food, and, in particular, a Mediterranean diet (and a limited consumption of meat), part of the UNESCO world heritage.
Slowness as a way to explore, that allows individuals to experience things with all their senses and to get to really know the area they are visiting.
Authentic and fair exchange between people, connecting travelers and locals. Every traveler should be considered a “temporary local”, with all the rights and the duties that come with it. The distribution of profits coming from tourism should significantly contribute to an improvement of the living conditions of the entire local population.
Anthropic pressure reduction for overly-touristic areas, through the promotion of rural, less-known destinations and of touristic flows during low season periods.
Intangible heritage: music, literature, art and traditions are our Country’s most important and unique resources, from a touristic point of view.
The right to travel for everyone, regardless of their income, all the while guaranteeing accessibility to people with specific needs.
Education toward more sustainable lifestyles, with special consideration for newer generations. Awareness of the problem of waste (promoting reusing, reducing and recycling, as a last resort), of pollution and climate change.
