Trekking, one of the most demanding in Italy, it covers the internal coast of the Orosei gulf, in one of the last “wilderness areas” remaining in Europe. Surrounded by the Mediterranean shrubs walking in unreal climates, between amazing limestone walls and unforgettable views of the sea. The trail consists of creeks, inlets and thick woods where it is easy to loose oneself and the crossing of some precipice (a very steep rock face) require the use of ropes. Sleeping under the stars or in caves and ravines (a deep narrow steep-sided valley), sheltered from the mild mediterranean climate, supplies that arrive by sea and trekking for five days without encountering inhabited areas. In some creeks there is the possibility to climb. ….Of coarse there won’t be any missing out on swimming in the irresistible blue waters of sarde.
