Follow me to one of Sardinia´s amazing coastal rock formations and climb the Pan di Zucchero! Loaded with plenty of routes at different levels of difficulty, you can choose the best route for your goals and abilities and I will put you at the top of the rock!

The Pan di Zucchero is a rock formation just off the coast of southwest Sardinia. Along with being the tallest rock in the Mediterranean at 133 meters, it is a popular destination for climbers who want tos cope out the lengthy climbing routes of this natural monument.

From the top of the rock, you will be able to see all along the coastline of the Iglesiente, an intriguing mining region throughout history. You will have the rare opportunity to compare the spectacular views of Pan di Zucchero, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Sardinian mainland all at the same time.

Our trip begins in the morning and will take us to the rock by boat, a ten-minute jaunt from our starting point. We will ascend the faraglione depending on your route and ability, and head for the top where we will take in the Sardinian and Mediterranean panoramas.

Our trip home can include the mining railroad, or we can return directly via the boat. I know the climbing routes and the Pan di Zucchero intimately well, so I will give you a safe, satisfying, and absolutely fun experience that you will remember long after the climb.

This is a relatively challenging climb, with certain routes that require a more sustained ability than others. You will want to be in good physical shape to take on this climb. I can help you decide which will be the best route for your skillset and climbing ambition, and we can craft your perfect adventure together.

Stop dreaming about it and book now to make this unbelievable climb up the Pan di Zucchero come true!

I have an incredible program in the east of Sardinia climbing an iconic rock face at Aguglia Goloritze! Or we can check out the Pranu Sartu, also in the southwest of the island!

About the guide

guide profile img

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.
