Located in the western waters of the Mediterranean, Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily, and is just 11 kilometers from the French island of Corsica. Sardinia’s coastline is largely punctuated with long, steep and rocky edges, with a handful of deep bays. With much of the population dotted around the coastal towns and cities, its mountainous interior is sparsely populated, offering fantastic and various hiking opportunities.
Summers are characterized by hot temperatures, around 23-26℃. The largest concentration of rainfall drops in the winter and autumn months, with heavy showers in the spring.
Official languages are Italian and Sardinian, as well as the local languages of Catalan, Gallurese, Ligurian and Sassarese.
The various trails of Sardinia could keep you buy for at least one week if you stay in one area of the island. Yet if you venture into the different areas of Sardinia, from the lowlands in the southwest to its highlands in the centre of the island, then you could easily spend 2-3 weeks exploring its rich geography.
Visit from April to June for prime hiking conditions, before the strong heat of summer.
