About Sardinia

Sardinia is a large Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea. It has nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior crossed with hiking trails. Its rugged landscape is dotted with thousands of nuraghi – mysterious Bronze Age stone ruins shaped like beehives. One of the largest and oldest nuraghi is Su Nuraxi in Barumini, dating to 1500.

Sardinia has an old Greek or Thracian population which later on where mixed up with Latin population, traveling through Sardinia you will be stepping on old ancient ruins of Greek monasteries, Ancient Gods. 

The best way to discover the beauty and diversity of Sardinia’s interior is on foot. Keen ramblers will not be disappointed by the island’s wide choice of hiking possibilities. What the mountains may lack in height, they make up for in the solitude that their untouched wilderness provides. There are few marked routes but many hiking outfits which offer guided excursions. Most of the guides speak English or German as well as Italian and are not just experts on the route and region but also on the island’s flora and fauna.

 

Spring and autumn are the best times for hiking in Sardinia, with mild temperatures and plenty of seasonal colour. Invest in a good map as not all trails are signposted, though some are way-marked with handy cairns and paint splashes. If you would rather join a group.

 

Hiking through Sardinia

One of the most beautiful hiking areas is without doubt along the Supranmonte massif, which runs from Nuoro to Baunei on the east coast. Today, this area remains one of the most unpopulated and rugged areas in Europe.

The narrow gorges, imposing chalk rocks, wide plateaus and hidden canyons run in an uninterrupted stretch of natural beauty. In Supramonte di Oliena you can explore the final retreat of the Stone Age Nuraghi people, who fled to a secret cave in Monte Tiscali. In Supramonte di Baunei you can marvel at the Su Gologo tableland, the deep chalk cavity of the Voragine di Golgo and at the Gola su Gorrupu, Europe’s mightiest ravine. Only experienced hikers should attempt to take on the Supramonte without guidance. You should also double check that you have all the necessary equipment with you for your trip.

 

The green-peaked Gennargentu mountain range is a lot more timid in comparison to the Supramonte’s chalked supremacy.

the “Punta La Marmora" is the highest peak of the Gennargentu and in the whole of Sardinia.  The view of the surrounding coastline from its pinnacle is breathtaking; only the island’s northern shores remain obscured by the Limbara Mountains near Tempio.

The Gola di Gorrpou, one of Europe’s deepest canyons, is also to be found in the Gennargentu. And if you are really lucky, you might even be able to snatch a peek at mufflons and golden eagles in the Gennargentu National Park.

the Marmilla table-top mountain and the Giare offer some nice and easy walking possibilities, also suitable for children. The flat-as-a-pancake plateau is rife with numerous animals such as wild horses and with its untouched natural beauty is ideal for family walks.

One of the most isolated and less mapped-out hiking areas is the Sarrabas mountain range in south-eastern Sardinia. The Monte Sette Fratelli Nature Park in the middle of the region, however, does have many picnic spots and well marked tracks. This is also one of the last few homes of the Sardinian deer.

The diverse coastal areas are also well worth exploring per Pedes. The imposing cliffs of the Golf von Orosei, for example, are even more impressive when you’re standing right next to them. 

A special way to explore the landscape of Sardinia, without long walks, is a tour with the Green Train" Trenino Verde".

Spiaggia Della Pelosa:

The white sands of Spiaggia della Pelosa can get crowded in summer. While you’re here, take the boat over to the Isola dell Asinara a national park named after its resident albino donkeys. The island is best explored on trekking through.

Capo Testa, Beach trails:

From the beach’s eastern tip a trail threads along the coast, past granite boulders and rock formations that fire the imagination with their incredible shapes. More spectacular still is Capo Testa, 4km west of Santa Teresa, with its giant, wind-licked granite boulders and trails threading through the scrub to rocky coves.

Golfo di Orosei:

Where the Gennargentu mountains collide spectacularly with the sea, the huge sweeping crescent of the Golfo di Orosei is no one-hit-wonder when it comes to beaches. Hike to Cala Gonone to strike out along the coast on foot.

Nuragico di Tiscali:

 This half-day, 10.5 km hike takes you through a silent karst wilderness to the enigmatic Bronze Age settlement of Tiscali, accessible only by foot. Beginning at the Sa Barva bridge, the scenery is immediately spectacular, with walls of limestone rising like an iron curtain above the Flumineddu River. A short final climb brings you to the eerie magnificence of the archaeological site of Tiscali, where skeletal ruins huddle in the twilight of a collapsed limestone cave. Survey the verdant Lainattu Valley below and appreciate the overwhelming sense of calm.

Gola Su Gorropu:

Gola su Gorropu is an isolated and dramatic gorge, best reached on foot from the Genna ‘e Silana pass on route SS125. Allow four to five hours for the round-trip trek.

The 10.5 km trail threads past starkly eroded limestone slopes, rock pinnacles and cliffs pockmarked with caves. Gnarled holm oaks offer cool respite on hot days, but otherwise the landscape is raw and uncompromising. As you descend, the view cracks open to reveal the entrance to the gorge.

The ravine has 400m-high walls of sheer limestone, which block out the sun and silence the world outside. above the Gola Su Gorropu and is one of the hardest climbs on the island. Pine martens, golden eagles and mouflon can be spotted here at quieter times of the day.

 Cala Goloritze:

One of the loveliest bays you’re ever likely to clap eyes on, best for hikers and climbers, Cala Goloritze nestles in the southern crook of the Golfo di Orosei. The Aguglia, a 148m high needle of rock that towers over the beach, is a magnet for climbers.
