Bicyle Tours in Sicily: Starting from the Hotel Kalura, Cefal¨

In the last few years, no other island in the Mediterranean region has gained more merits within the active bicycling community than Sicily. Once, cycling in Sicily was just a quiet tip, now it has turned into a preferred choice. At the Hotel Kalura we are proud to have played a decisive part in this positive development. Over ten years ago, we have discerned the outstanding location of Cefal¨ at Sicily's North coast and tailored our hotel facilities to the requests and demands of the bicycle loving community. Meanwhile, we have acquired the right to say that the Hotel Kalura is the center of bike holidays at the island's North coast. This is not only proven by enthusiastic guests who keep coming each year, but also by the editorial teams of Germany's two leading bicycling magazines BIKE and TOUR. They have frequently given us very positive feedback in the press. Furthermore, they have chosen the Hotel Kalura as a base for their own cycling-events. We regard this as a huge compliment! Nevertheless, you do not have to be a professional or semi-professional athlete to enjoy the beauty of the landscape here! Relaxed and easy-going trips will give you a wonderful opportunity to get acquainted to Sicily and its people. Gerrit Curcio, Owner of the Hotel Kalura


The impressive Norman cathedral has made Cefal¨ famous. But actually, Cefal¨'s complete historic center is a treasure for all those searching for history with ambience and flair. The city has a natural rock fortification, the famous "Rocca", which is only 25 minutes walk away from the hotel. Enjoy the vivid Italian street live in one of the charming cafÚs!

The mountain-bike district

The nature resort "Madonie" is an area of over 40.000 hectare which makes it one of the biggest protected landscapes in all of Sicily. This treasure starts close to the Hotel Kalura, only a few minutes by bicycle. You will find a lot of trails and tracks. Mountain bikers love to discover them and cruise through old mountainous villages. The way back to the hotel will end in a refreshing down-hill, because it is located right at the sea.

The race-cycling district

The hinterland of Sicily's North coast is outstanding in terms of variety and beauty. The flowery coast line changes inland into hills and slopes full of olive and citrus trees and pastures. Some tracks on deserted roads will lead you into the rugged mountains of the "Madonie" which will rise up to an altitude of 1600 meters. However, you will find the gradients moderate. They will provide an excellent basic training with varied panoramic views.

Biking for leisure and relaxation

You do not have to be a professional or semi-professional athlete to discover the beauty of the landscape! Hidden bicycle trails will take you along the coast line or in lonely mountainous villages high up into the heart of the "Madonie". You don't have to bring your own bike with you: up-to-date bicycle with full suspension can be rented at our bicycle base.
