Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. With an area of 24,090 km², more than 80% of its territory is covered by mountains and hills.
This trip is your chance to explore this wonderful area through the famous Selvaggio Blu Trek. It is a challenging hiking trail that borders the cliffs of the island’s east coast. It was designed in the 80’s by two Italian climbers who were fascinated by the wild beauty of this region.
The usual route takes 6 days of hiking and connects the towns of Santa Maria Navarrese and Cala Gonone. After one day of briefing, we will cross forests, reeds and limestone caves at an altitude between 300 and 1000 meters.
One of the amazing places we will reach is Portu Iltiera, a 250-meter sea cliff with a panoramic view of the Gulf of Orosei. Another one, Serra Salinas (500 m) allows a spectacular overlook of Cala Goloritzé, one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia.
Unlike usual trekking, the Selvaggio Blu Trek is a real mountaineering experience. The hiking trail ends abruptly on cliffs or deep gorges. We will hike on juniper ladders and in some sections we will need climbing ropes.
We have a support boat so we can walk with light luggage during the day. At night we will sleep in caves or refuges, or out on the beach under the starlight.
