Apr, May, Sep, Oct, Nov
We will meet at 6pm at the Albergo Santa Maria in Santa Maria Navarrese for a briefing and gear check before dinner. We will have a nice rest before our first day of adventure.
After leaving the Hotel we will hike for less than 2 hours across a tree trail until we get to Pedra Longa: the official starting point of Wild Blue Trek. We will have the opportunity to swim at the Forrola beach. After relaxing, we will start climbing the first cliff of the trip that will lead us to Cengia Giradili. We will walk through dirt roads and after 5 hours, hiking for 12 km, we will reach our overnight spot: the Ginnirco sheepfold.
This will be the longest but worthiest day of the wild blue trek. It will take us 9 hours and 17 km to hike through the most challenging territory, climbing up 800m and going down 1100m. After a while, we will face our first technical section on Bacu Tenadili (narrow valley in the local language) In order to reach Porto Pedroso Fjord, we will climb across a steep rock band with our harness on. It will take us 4 hours to get there from our previous overnight spot. After a long hike we will reach Punta Salinas, where the best landscapes await us. Then, we will go downhill for 1 hour to a beautiful beach: Cala Goloritzé (a UNESCO heritage site) where a good meal will be the best way to end an amazing day.
This is the shortest day, with 5 hours and 6 km hiking, 300m of vertical gain, and with “no fall zones” to be cautious about.
This day we will climb the challenging “Su Ledere ‘e Goloritzé” route. We will reach a hanging trees spot called “the springs”, with exposed landslides and a golden cave 100m above the sea. After the Ispuligi’s forest we will get ready for the via ferrata (30m). After this adrenalinic activity, we will continue through an easy and comfortable traverse until we finally get to Cala Mariolu: the most beautiful beach along the coast.
This day we will hike the path that goats followed when they wanted to reach the beach. After a few hours of hiking we will have the first abseiling of four for today. We will have a little rest in Bacu Mudaloru before we keep going across vegetation and caves. We will have the chance to visit the “Grotta del Fico” cave, where seals used to give birth. This will also be the next overnight spot. After 6 or 7 hours and 9km hiking, we will sleep in this amazing place, 20 meters above sea level.
This will be the final hiking day of this great adventure!
We will follow the original Blue wild trek and reach the mule track that comes from Ololbizzi. After two long abseils with rope we will reach the Cala Biriala beach. We will have a long, relaxing moment in the Oronnoro’s forest before continue abseiling down the last meters of the track. After 7 hours and 4 km hike, the Cala Sisine Beach will mark the end of the trail. There you will have the opportunity to enjoy a last swim and head back to Santa Maria Navarrese. After 45 minutes by boat, dinner and a good comfy bed will be waiting for us at the hotel.
After a delicious breakfast, we will head to the airport. But before saying goodbye, we will prepare our next journey together!
We will meet in the Albergo Santa Maria in Santa Maria Navarrese at 6pm.

Mountain Guide UIAGM / IFMGA since 2011
It is said that passion is called so because it passes; then what I feel for the Mountain must have a different name, because it has been years since I have it, and it keeps on growing…
When I was a kid my parents took me to the mountains every summer, almost always in Val di Funes and in Val Pusteria. I liked to walk there. At the age of 14, I realized that all these mountains could be climbed… At 21, I attended my first climbing course with a mountain guide, it was as if I had opened my eyes from that moment! I used to climb in every spare moment and I read many books from Reinhold Messner, Hermann Buhl, Wakter Bonatti… my intention was to do like them.
My favorite field of action has always been the Dolomites, but I have also explored the Julian Alps, the Ortler and the Mont Blanc massif. And not just during the summer but also in winter. I then dedicate it to off-piste skiing in search of open spaces and the most picturesque canals, ski mountaineering, pristine environment, away from the tracks where everybody goes.
The desire to become a mountain guide is born in me during my first year, I admired the other people who had from this great passion make it their work.
If there is one thing that my personal history has taught me is that it's never too late to learn how to put the tips of the skis out of slopes, or to reach a top that has always been seen in dreams. And when I arrive at the destination, and I see in the eyes of those who followed me, the joy and happiness of the enterprise of discovery, I feel as if I were there myself for the first time, and that's the same place seen and reviewed reveals a new face and passion ... starts to burn.
Get in touch with me and let’s leave for great adventures together.
