A Trek Along an Untouched Mediterranean Coast

Repertory Trip: No Future Dates Set

Overview

There’s a corner of Sardinia that is utterly wild and untouched, where the sapphire waters of the Mediterranean lap the shores of golden beaches, and shepherds’ paths lead to ancient stone age sites. The only way to reach this spectacular landscape is on foot, as the shepherds do, or by boat along the enchanting sea. WT Trip Leader Stefano Baldi, whose passion for the unique cultures of Sardinia has led him to explore its most remote reaches, has handcrafted an extraordinary trek across this untamed landscape that will immerse you into an incredible world unlike any other. We’ll hike shepherds’ trails, discover mysterious ancient dwellings known as nuraghi, swim in isolated coves, camp on a secluded beach, and meet local shepherds as we stay in their shelters along the coast. The hiking is rugged, and our camps are basic, but the reward is an experience of a people, culture, and landscape that few would imagine still exist in Europe. And after five nights of rough but exhilarating living, we savor two fantastic nights in an exquisite boutique hotel, the Su Gologone, renowned for its stunning setting, beautiful design, and great cuisine. If this is your kind of adventure, join us for an absolutely unforgettable hiking and cultural experience to wild Sardinia!
