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.
