Marco, IFMGA certified mountain guide, will take you on this 8-day hike along the east coast of Sardinia, in the mythical and difficult Selvaggio Blu!
Join me in this incredible hiking trip through the wild east coast of Sardinia. Selvaggio Blu is one of the most difficult treks in Europe.
The itinerary runs along the whole gulf of Orosei, from Baunei to Cala Gonone. In fact, it’s a full immersion into the dense Mediterranean bush. We will progress among among impressive rocky walls and steep canals. These paths take us to white and golden sandy beaches.
Indeed, it will be a long and challenging week. The activities include crossing the dense vegetation, rappelling by ropes and climbing through easy passages in rock. But not everything is hard work. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a swim during each day of the swim.
All of this will give us moments of intense adventure and strong emotions. During the journey we will enjoy breathtaking views over extraordinary landscapes, and bivouacs along the moonlight shore.
The trip is 8 days long, of which we will hike during 6 days. For more details please check the itinerary below.
Are you tempted by this unique and challenging program? Then don’t hesitate to contact me! This is a once in a lifetime experience that we can live together. I also love hiking in the Alps during the summer. Check out this hiking trip around Monte Rosa!

I am Marco, and I am an UIAGM certified mountain guide since 2003. I started rock climbing when I was 14, and at the age of 20 I climbed the great Californian walls of El Capitan. Then i explored Patagonia, climbing the mythical Fitz Roy. I have also opened new routes in the Moroccan High Atlas and in the Alps.
My passion for the mountains drives me to work throughout the year, looking for new adventures. Depending on the season, I take my clients rock climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, freeriding, hiking... Either in the Alps, since i'm based in the Monte Rosa area, or in many other countries, in different continents.
The mountain as a playground has no limits!

We had an amazing climbing experience which was primarily duw to the excellent and experienced guide (Marco and Paolo). High calibre individuals wgo really care about the group’s well being and pushing the tea. To their limits in a good way. The only comment we have is the primitive toilet facilities and lack of water to wash up at Margerita hutte.
Our guide was Pietro and not marco like we initially thought. Pietro was awesome, it is all about his clients and most importantly safety. We did two runs and it was an incredible experience. Guide is a must to explore the hidden spots because Monterosa ski is massive.
PAOLO was an amazing guide. This trip was the “craziest” experience of our groups lives. We saw incredible terrain, had great snow, and challenged ourselves. Highly recommend
We had a fablupus day. We were initially booked with Marco but due to the weather we went later in the week and Marco wasn\'t available. We had another guide called Paolo Tombini and he was very good, very professional and good company.
