Private sports and tourism cycling trip on MTB up to 15 people.

On this Mountain Bike hike, you can discover the Conca d’Oro (Golden Basin), as your cross il Parco della Favorita (the Favorita Park) and the Riserva Naturale integrale Grotta Conza (Conza Cave Nature Reserve). Admire the beautiful scenery that flows between the colourful landscapes of the Gulf of Palermo and Carini, as you ride along the dirt tracks that cross through the Mediterranean wildlife around the Pizzo Manolfo and Raffo Rosso (Red Raffo). One we’re out of the city, we will cross the Favorita Parkthe city’s green lungs – as we follow along the city’s official cyclocross route, which winds through the woods.  that We’ll make a few stops along the way, resting our legs at the Niscemi Cave and the Royal Stables.

We’ll then carry on our descent along the Landolina dirt track, which runs along the southern slopes of Monte Pellegrino, from which you can enjoy beautiful views of Mondello Bay. We will carry on along paved roads towards Tommaso Natale and enter the Conza Cave Nature Reserve, before we begin the ascent up towards Pizzo Manolfo. Here your gaze will sweep over the rugged views of Palermo’s breathtaking mountain ranges, which over the centuries have been modified in parts by manmade works. You can admire the glistening limestone rocks, showcasing an eclectic palette of grey, pink and rusty hues.

On request, there will be a chance to visit the Grotta Conza, situated at the foot of a vertical wall surrounded by Ash and Carob trees. At the top, we will take a refreshment break at the authentic Sicilian restaurant “Zu Caliddu” to taste some typical examples of Palermo’s street food.  We will then head back onto the paved provincial road that, with a gentle descent, will take us back to Palermo – offering glimpses of the city and Monte Pellegrino along the way. Return to Palermo and the end of tour.
