Explore the Caves in the Madonie Natural Park

This natural caves hike in the Madonie Mountains allows guests to explore a very interesting geological area where the limestone shelters natural caves as well as fossils of corals and other forms of life that populated the sea million years ago.

With the help of your expert local guide, you will learn things you’d never find in the guide books, see things you’d never discover on your own. Come explore the wonders of the Madonie’s caves with us!

The itinerary includes two caves that are accessible and a pit cave. It offers beautiful panoramic views over the lower part of the Madonie Mountains, Castelbuono, and the Thyrrenian coast.
