Rock Climbing in Sardinia

Explore the wild and rugged island of Sardinia and ascend its stunning cliffs and crags

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.

1-Day Multi-Pitch Climb of the Pan di Zucchero in Sardinia

I spent a lot of money to fly to this location and to stay multiple nights at the guide’s b&b. If I had known I would only spend two hours doing one multi-pitch climb (and not the Pan de Zucchero climb I had paid for), I would’ve saved my money and gone elsewhere with another guide. As a result, I will not be using Explore-Share guides in the future if this is the model. In addition to a very short day climbing, the second day I had planned to add on was canceled when my guide had a stomach ache. He did not refer me to any other guides in the area. I was a woman on my own without transportation on an island in a remote town with a population of 700 people. As a consolation, I spent the day at a nearby beach where a local proceeded to grope and sexually assault me. When I mentioned this to Marco before leaving on my last morning in town, his irreverence was disappointing to say the least.

1-Day Multi-Pitch Climbing the Masua Cliffs in Sardinia

We had the BEST day climbing with Marco in the Masua Cliffs. It was our first multi pitch so I was a little nervous but Marco made the whole experience seem so relaxed and fun. He was super professional and adjusted easily to suit our level, and sang me lots of songs when I got scared 😅. The climb itself was amazing. Because it was our first time we did an easier 5c route but it had lots of fun challenges - crack, slab, chimney. For me it was super technical and fun. The abseil down was one of the most spectacular feelings I have ever experienced. I will remember it forever. Grazie Marco for a great introduction to outdoor climbing. We can't wait to get more experienced and come back to stay longer and do some of the harder routes.

1-Day Multi-Pitch Climb of the Pan di Zucchero in Sardinia

Marco is a gentleman and a very conscientious guide. He was prepared and always ahead of the game. We will try to go climbing with him again. Thanks Marco! The choice of route was an alternative due to closure on the Pan di Zucchero. It did provide a similar experience from what we can tell. So far I like the Explore-Share Service. It has been efficient and uncomplicated with reminders and an easy way to put us in contact with our guide.

4-day Sardinia multi-pitch climbing

Really good experience booking via Expore and Share. We've been in contact with several companies to arrange a climbing class but non of them were able to book a guide for us, Expore and Share managed. Put guide Marco was super friendly and experienced, we strongly recommend him.
