Top Rock Climbing Trips in Sardinia
The beautiful island of Sardinia is the second largest in the Mediterranean, after Sicily. The autonomous region of Italy lies south of the French island of Corsica and is lapped by both the Mediterranean and the Tyrrhenian Seas. The view from the Sardinian cliffs delving into the turquoise water is spectacular. There are multi-pitch routes, rock walls and crags for both beginners and experts. The wild natural beauty of Sardinia, together with 2,000 kilometers of coastline, incredible beaches and mountainous interior make it a fine rock climbing destination. Visit in spring and autumn for ideal weather and climbing conditions.
Sardinia is considered to be a micro-continent. This is because the breathtaking Mediterranean island boasts mountains, deep green woods, twinkling blue waters, smooth beaches, and stunning cliffs. This is reflected as well in the languages of the island, with Italian and a wide range of local minority languages being recognised and respected. Furthermore, the island boasts a broad history and has amazing archeological landmarks. Variety is also present in the wide range of rock climbing options for all levels. With over 6,000 routes to choose from, Sardinia is truly a climbers paradise.
Some of the Sardinian rocks date back 500 million years! Granite, basalt, sandstone and lime make some of the superb walls you can try out with altitudes that range approximately from 300 to 1000 meters.

Etienne was a fantastic guide! He suggested doing a multipitch tour of the Sella towers after I contacted exploreshare with a description of my experience, this was a great way for me to check out a bit of the Dolomites and a first taste of multipitch with the limited time I had available. Very friendly and knowledgeable, and went out of his way to help me get to and from the Val Di Fassa. Thanks again, and hope to return in the future!
We had a great experience with Mr.Enrico Geremia for our via ferrata trip up Marmolada. Enrico was a friendly guide and did not compromise with any of the safety equipment. We felt secure all the while with Enrico. We would certainly recommend our friends who have plans to hike the Dolomites in the future to use this platform 🙂
Had a great trip with Arne, although we didn’t do the North Ridge of the Badile due to lack of access after last year’s rockfall. We had 3 days climbing in the Bregaglia completing multipitch rock routes on the Badile and the Cengalo. We did the classics Via Molten and Spigolo Vinci respectively. Arne is a very professional guide of few words and we got on well and had a good time. We spent 3 days at the Gianetti hut before the weather turned and we spent time in the Val di Mello climbing a couple of granite classics. The weather was marvellous as was the climbing and the scenery. Arne was, as you would expect, very knowledgeable and I always felt safe and in good hands. I had a great experience, and climbing with someone new was part of it. I would certainly consider contacting Arne again for further adventures.
I had an amazing time!
This was an incredible experience!!! Our guide Fabio, president of the Tuscan Rock Climbing Federation, took us throughout the beautiful Muzzerone. His 35 years of experience definitely showed. He was wise, courteous, and knowledgable. The climbing itself was some of the best we’ve encountered: the rock faces were gorgeous (nice and gritty, easy to grip) and the views of the Mediterranean were spectacular. Highly highly recommend.
Enrico is a great guide and the climbing is amazing. Highly recommended.
The day was great, we felt safe, Stefano was responsive to our request, our pace, etc.
The only thing that could have been improved was the communication before getting to Italy. I had a hard time deciding on what was appropriate for the level of our group, gauge how long and how hard the different options were with the limited info that was given to me.
Everything was perfect and Marija extraordinary. I would repeat!
Dashing between spectacular thunderstorms, we had an amazing day with Carlos – who we’ve dubbed author of “Zen and the Art of Rock Climbing!” He brought a new and fresh perspective to climbing, from breathing techniques to adding blue painters tape to our toes to keep our focus on our feet. It worked! Our climbing felt more fluid and natural. It was a wonderful day for the entire family.
Brilliant trip with my 14 year old son. Etienne knew the area thoroughly, chose challenging but fun routes, kept us safe at all times and made the whole trip a fantastic experience.
Fabio and Valeria were our guides on the day. We were a family with kids aged between 10 and 14years old. Fabio was very safety conscious and passionate about the sport. Very friendly and we felt like a day out with friends. The climbing spot was amazing. Great view, nice rocks.
Enrico is a great guide!
Enrico was a great guide. He gave us some history of the mountain while climbing and took photos for us while hiking up to Punta Penia. Very professional and helpful guide!
We were a group of 6 climbing up to Monte Procinto (5a route) – we had a great day and our guide was really good. His calm and helpful attitude got us all to the top, even though a few of us are scared of heights. We’re not really climbers, but we performed well with the after-climb beers 🙂
I knew it was going to be an amazing time climbing but wow! Cris and his wife took care of everything! Great communication and quick responses on all my questions and concerns. It was my first time climbing outside and also leading(3month new at gym climbing). They made me feel safe but challenged. Exactly what i was looking for. Spent 6.5 hours on the wall and that was perfect for my full day. Unimaginable views!! Will definitely be bringing my partner back for a few days climbing here!
Our guide, Cris (Roberto’s colleague), was very professional and easy going. He made us feel very comfortable. It was clear safety was a priority. We did a variety of climbs that were great for my sister (beginner) and myself (intermediate). So fun and a great way to see the views in a unique way!
I went climbing with a group organized by Roberto. We went to a crag near Camaiore, it was great!
My daughter (11 years old) and I had a nice day of sport climbing is Sant Anna above Camaiore with a great guide from Roberto’s team. It was a good place to learn and do some more challenging routes as the day progressed. The views are also fantastic. Can’t wait to return next year and also spend a night at a rifugio!
