Day by day program outline
In the morning arrival at your accommodation. In the afternoon Gaveena's local fellows will take you on excursion by boat, looking for playful and friendly dolphins living in the waters surrounding Alghero. Your hosts are marine biologists and will provide you with an interesting overview on rich and fragile Mediterranean ecosystem. A secluded bay will then be the setting for snorkeling in sardinian sea and admire its rich underwater life, before enjoying a delicious aperitivo with genuine local products. In case weather will not be suitable for boat excursion, you'll be fascinated by an itinerary in Porto Conte Natural Reserve; this protected area in the outskirts of Alghero will surprise you with spectacular coastal landscapes, captivating mediterranean scents and a rich wildlife including boars, wild horses and marine birds (duration 3 hours). Evening at leisure and overnight.
Gaveena's ecotourism experience takes you exploring Asinara island National Park at north-west edge of Sardinia. You'll be wandering by Land Rover and you'll be fascinated by breathtaking sceneries and the unique history of this 'island within the island', inhabited by indigenous albino donkeys and wild boars. Since these emotions will pleasantly burn your energies, a picnic lunch with sardinian specialties will provide you with some tasty calories to let you properly enjoy the day (total duration 7/8 hours, including transfer from/to Alghero). Evening at leisure and overnight.
An itinerary along the panoramic road between Alghero and Bosa, will let you admire 40 km of coastal wilderness separating the most charming towns in west Sardinia. Several marine birds live in this area and place their nests between spectacular geological formations towering on Mediterranean sea. Be surprised by the colourful and warm atmosphere of Bosa, densely built on the shores of Temo river around a medieval fortress. In the evening a several-coursed dinner with local products will let you enjoy the intense and various taste of sardinian food. Overnight
