Tourism can be a very destructive force. The negative impacts of tourism development can gradually destroy the environmental resources on which it depends. Active Tourism requires active physical and mental involvement of the tourist, including more adventure and action than traditional Ecotourism or Cultural Tourism. Both Ecotourism and Active Tourism aim to have as little impact as possible on the ecosystem and the visited country to ensure that development is a positive experience for local people who used to live and work there.

It also means travelling in small groups that are less intrusive and offer more opportunity for local interaction. Natural resources, cultural and historical heritage that exist in our country, make it such a wonderful place but, unfortunately, the global world philosophy does not respect the rhythms of life and a harmonious relationship with nature. Sicily risks losing everything if people who live linked at this geographic reality will be obliged to move away owing to their traditional methods of production and the development of ecological forms of agriculture, arts and crafts will be disadvantaged. Easy Sicily – in order to contribute to the development of sustainable agriculture and the knowledge of food production – offers small group adventures that:
The active holidays, planned by us, come our guest up to nature with an opportunity to discover sights, smells, sounds, and tastes that are otherwise missed in daily life.
