Description

Take a walk along the coast of Sardinia and see for yourself the eclectic beauty of the island! I will guide you through three days of amazing coves, rocky cliffs suspended in midair, and sandy beaches along the purest water of the Mediterranean!

The island of Sardinia is filled with natural beauty. Its location in the middle of the Mediterranean has allowed unique flora and fauna to develop, and its ancient land forms have created captivating sights for the avid adventurer.

In the southwest, tucked away into the historic culture that only this region can provide, is the stunning imagery of the Miniere nel Blu. Stretching along the coast of the Sulcis Iglesiente lie various communities developed over long periods of time, each with their own enriching tradition.

Mining has been part of Sardinian culture for thousands of years. The southwest has long been home to mining activity and a sought-after region for its mineral deposits throughout history and by many cultures.

The small town of Portoscuso possesses impeccable beaches, and its proud tuna fishing heritage is world renowned. The charming views of the Five Stacks (the five faraglioni) have been beckoning travelers for years to catch a glimpse of the unprecedented natural beauty of Sardinia.

The churches in the region are huge attractions for travelers. The medieval culture of the settlements of the coast rivals that of the mines and the associated mineral activities.

Our three day trek will takes us past ancient buildings of natural, historical, and religious relevance. We will also see the mines that gave this trek its name and understand the significance the industry played in Sardinia.

Whether you are looking to experience ancient culture on a personal level, or are interested in the natural beauty of the physical land itself, this program touches on each aspect of this incredible island.

With my local expertise, you will have a compelling adventure that will stay with you forever.

Book this now and let me show you why Sardinia should be on everyone´s bucket list.

If you were interested in a shorter activity, I can take you on a via ferrata tour of the Pan di Zucchero! Or we can multi-pitch our way up the cliffs of Masua!

About the guide

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.
