Description

Located in the central-eastern area of ​​Sardinia,  the trekking route of Selvaggio Blu is definitely worth exploring. Join me as I take you to this incredible terrain in Italy.

The Selvaggio Blu lies in the beautiful area of ​​Baunei, around 480 meters above sea level. Baunei offers a stunning view of the high massif of Gennargentu and is surrounded by impressive mountains.

The trip has a lot to offer. For 10 days, you’ll cross over 40 kilometers of limestone rocks and ascend many high cliffs. The route stretches from Santa Maria Navarrese port to the beautiful Italian coast of Cala Sisine and is without a doubt an absolute pleasure for the eyes.

The Selvaggio Blu is considered a wild trekking route as a major part of the path can only be accessed by boat. The entire gulf is formed of spectacular coastline, deep waters, gorges and caves and is known for its typical Mediterranean vegetation.

The tour will take you to an area that will leave you spellbound. Several stretches of the route display the fine craftsmanship of the 19th-century charcoal burners and skilled shepherds. The path is considered as one of the most difficult paths to access and demands the expertise of 4th-degree technical skills to traverse.

Though the route is just about 50 km, however, the terrain and the heavy backpack generally makes the progression fairly slow. But, everything becomes worthwhile as you are rewarded with panoramic views all along.

Keep in mind that it is a strenuous trek and includes vertical scaling and abseiling which connects many spectacular sections of the trek. So, you must be in great shape and have previous experience to sign up.

If you have what it takes, then send a message to go on one of the most exceptional treks in the world. You sure will never forget it! I also guide this trip to the Italian Alps here.

Really good experience definitely would Recommend doing this, Renzo is an amazing instructor would give six stars if I could

Renzo provided us with a fantastic and memorable trip up Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso. He looked after us the whole time and we felt comfortable with his guidance and experience. The trip was challenging in parts, not helped by the heatwave that was melting the glacier as we descended, though he navigated us all down safely. The trip was challenging for our group and it could have been adjusted for a slower pace, but the melting glacier made us push faster and we were glad Renzo was there to ensure our safety. Explore Share did a good job arranging the trip. There was a hiccup with the payment which took a long time to go through the payment portal and a lot of back and forth though was rectified eventually in the end. No issues with Renzo our guide or Explore Share and really fantastic service from both. I gave the trip itself 4 stars rather than 5 as was a bit challenging for us though we managed it and have some amazing memories to take away with us. Thank you to Renzo and Explore Share for a trip we will all remember for a long time!

An amazing experience doing the Senterio dei Fiori with our guide Renzo. A true ambassador of the Via Ferrata fraternity.

Our guide Renzo went above and beyond! He adapted perfectly to our level of experince and fitness, took us on an amazing scramble around thr mountains, and even took lots of photos and made coffee for us!

Renzo is a considerate, skilful guide and a good companion. Highly recommended. Under the conditions we climbed in (i.e. warm and cloudy) the route is less highly rated. The track through the "Eck" was much more demanding than Goedecke suggests in his book "4000er" and I would only attempt it again earlier in the year. Renzo took loads of photos so that was good. Grazie Mille!

The tour to the Pisgana glacier was great, even though the snow conditions were icy & challenging. We’d definitely recommend Renzo, the guide, and the Explore Share website. The costs were v.competitive and an incentive to book. The only drawback was the website made it difficult to swop some details like email addresses (e.g. for sending photos). Anyway, we intend using the service & guide again next time we’re in Passo Tonale!

Great guide with great knowledge of the area. Freeride in Passo Tonale is not really good for snowboarders as the "way out" fro many runs are long and flat

We booked the "Freeride skiing day trips in Passo Tonale, Adamello Range" through Explore-Share.com The booking procedure was very easy and our mountain guide Renzo took us on 2 perfect freeriding days, finding untouched powder even after 1 week of last snowfall. If we go back to Passo Tonale for freeride skiing we would definetly go with Renzo again.
