Discover the hardest and most beautiful trek in Italy on this Selvaggio Blu 6 day trekking trip in Sardinia led by Ivan, IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide!
No buildings, no roads, just a few shepherds’ old huts and very few paths to follow. Join me on this Selvaggio Blu 6 day trekking trip in Sardinia and discover the most fascinating and challenging route in Italy!
The Gulf of Orosei stretches over 50 kms and is one of the most beautiful areas of Sardinia. Located in the east coast of the island, we’ll explore its Mediterranean forests, spectacular coves and challenging rocks. Some of these terrains will require to apply some technical climbing skills.
The Selvaggio Blu trek includes abseiling, scrambling and very steep paths on loose rocks. However, the most challenging part of this trip will be finding our trekking route. That’s why it’ll be my pleasure to guide you through this island of unspoiled nature, its narrow paths and rocky cliffs.
During this 6 day adventure, we’ll hike between 4 and 6 hours every day always surrounded by the “bluest” Mediterranean water. We’ll sleep in secluded beaches and rest under the open sky where the stars will spark our dreams. Although no climbing experience is needed, all participants must be in good physical shape. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

Another stage with no climbing difficulties. This section of the route leads to Punta Salina, boasting one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the entire trek, before heading down to the sea.

First technical difficulties with a few class 3 climbing steps, short equipped paths and “Scala Fustes”. The trail enters the “wild heart” of the trek by making some variations from the classic itinerary. Then, we’ll head down to one of the most spectacular coves in the Mediterranean.

The trail includes some more technical difficulties with some class 2 and class 3 climbing sections and 4 abseils. Each one of them is about 15 meters long.
The last abseil leads directly to the famous Grotta del Fico, the stopover of the day. The Grotta del Fico excursion is not part of the original itinerary, but it’s so beautiful that you simply shouldn’t miss it.

An absolutely amazing time spent with Ivan and Filipo! Super experts, really fun to be with, and good guys all around. The trip was 100% memorable, well organised, safe, but challenged my kids, while building their confidence in a breathtaking setting. A HUUUGE thanks!
We had a fantastic Bodenga 2 tour. It was so much fun that we right away wanted to do it again, although, as outstanding tours usually are, it was a little exhausting - but in a good way! I have to restrain myself with praise for Ivan and Philippe; they are a truly professional, very very experienced and great fun team to be around. At no point, any of us felt unsafe, even we couldn’t always imagine what was coming next. We will definitely look into Ivan’s other tours and hope to book again soon !
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
