Highlights

 
  • Discover one of the wildest places in Italy.

  • Immerse yourself in this island's history and culture.

  • Enjoy the amazing Mediterranean food and discover its unique flavors.

 

I invite you to disconnect from the modern world and immerse yourself in the wilderness of Sardinia.  Follow me on this Selvaggio Blu trekking week and discover the toughest but most beautiful trek in Italy!

This 7-day trekking program will take you on a unique adventure on the most isolated coastline in the region. My proposal is to hike along this remote limestone coast where we will explore its Mediterranean forests, secret caves and delightful gorges. Always surrounded by the “bluest” Mediterranean water, we will also face cliffs up to 2,700 feet/ 822 meters high where we will have to apply some technical climbing skills.

Our meeting point will be in the beautiful coastal town of Santa Maria Navarrese. From there, we will begin our trekking adventure in the Supramonte Mountain Range where we will find a splendid combination of sea and mountains. Every day we’ll hike between 7 and 8 hours . Every night, we’ll sleep under the open sky in beaches, caves and old shepherd huts.

Also, for those hikers who don’t have enough time, we can divide this hiking expedition into two parts and they may take place at different times of the year.

Because this is a challenging program, please bare in mind that you will need some prior trekking experience to join. Additionally, all participants must have a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you every step of the way. 

Ready to discover the toughest but most beautiful trek in Italy? Then book your place now and join me! It will be my pleasure to guide you on this unique adventure in Sardinia. 

I also offer an exciting 2-day mountaineering adventure in Triangolo della Caprera, in Piedmont, Italy.

About the Guide

 
 

I have learned to dream simply by observing.
Climbing, travelling, music, people are my greatest passions for sure. .
I love every aspect of mountains my favourite areas are certainly the Argentera massif, Finale and the Val Pennavaire, places where it all started.
Born in 1983, I come a a small inland village in western Liguria, the place where I grew up and where a bit by chance I took my did my first moves, starting to play on a splendid limestone literally in front of my home.
Getting involved in alpine mountaineering with its various activities started slowly bit by bit, first rock climbing, then mountaineering, followed by ice climbing and then ski mountaineering.
Felling that I constantly wanted to spend more time in the mountains I decided to start the training to become an alpine guide.

These days I am a full time alpine guide, dedicating the winter and spring months to freeride and ski mountaineering from the Alps to Northern Europe. I dedicate the rest of the year to the fantastic opportunities Liguria has to offer (particularly the area around Finale).
