Day by day program outline
In the morning arrival at your accommodation in Alghero. Your first afternoon in north-west Sardinia will be on a mountain bike, riding along scenographic coastal tracks in Porto Conte Park; this wide natural reserve lies in the outskirts of the city and hosts a rich fauna such as wild boars, wild sardinian horses and donkeys, as well as rare birds like griffon vultures (duration 3 hours). Rest of the day at leisure and overnight.
During this active day Gaveena's local folks will hike with you along the easy path on the coast surrounding Alghero, with stunning views on massive rocky cliffs, wide natural areas and secluded bays. The dreamy setting is completed by the intense scents of Mediterranean scrub pleasing your senses at every step. During the excursion a picnic lunch made with tasty local products will allow you to feed your hunger as well as your love for this generous nature (duration 6 hours). Evening at leisure and overnight.
We suggest you to enjoy a relaxing morning on the wide beach in Alghero, while waiting to enjoy the sunset riding a horse at Porto Ferro, the favourite spot of windsurfers; this windy bay is protected by two antique costal towers, surrounded by sand dunes, maritime pine trees and a rich scented Mediterranean scrub (duration 3 hours). In the evening get ready for a rich typical sardinian dinner that will properly shake your tastebuds with a delicious selection of local food and wine. Overnight.
