Description

Are you looking for a fascinating adventure on the most isolated Mediterranean coastline? Then join me for this 1-week hiking experience in Sardinia, Italy. Let’s discover the Selvaggio Blu route together!

The Selvaggio Blu is a challenging and breathtaking trekking route in Sardinia, the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It goes through the internal coast of the Orosei gulf and, as opposed to usual trekking, it involves some rock climbing sections.

On this 7-day trip we will explore a beautiful wilderness area. The trail, surrounded by amazing limestone walls, crosses lush forests, over sea-cliffs, and narrow and deep gorges. Additionally, in some parts we will need to use ropes. Also, if you want, you will have the chance to swim in crystalline waters! Furthermore, we will sleep under the stars, or in caves, enjoying the pleasant Mediterranean climate.

So, if you are ready for a hiking adventure full of emotions, please contact me. This unforgettable 1-week trip we will be a unique opportunity to experience a full wilderness inmersion!

I live at Turin, but I am resident in the Alps where I practice the mountaineering activity all through the year; I love the void and I play every time I can; on rock, ice, dry tooling and also skiing.
