How to choose a trekking in Sardinia
Are you one of those active minded fellows who love to trek and – after big efforts – to enjoy deserved relax? If so, we guess you would like to appreciate some cool opportunities for trekking in Sardinia where you walk hard before lying on a beach or sitting in front of a mouthwatering meal! But, wait: how to choose a trekking route properly?. Watch out for weather conditions, equipment difference in altitude and difficulty level… and of course follow Gaveena’s tips.

In which season are you travelling?

Are you a mountain junkie? Do you love walking between untouched sceneries with breathtaking views? Then most likely you would enjoy exploring unique sites such as Tiscali (the achaeological site considered the cradle of Sardinian prehistorical civilization) and Gorropu (the deepest canyon in Europe) in the outskirts of Dorgali in central Sardinia. These excursions give their best in spring when the nature shines of bright green and flowers dress their best colours. Too romantic? Don’t worry there will be more than a chance for laughing with your mates.

Forgot your equipment at home?

You don’t need to be an expert to enjoy some of the most amazing trekking routes in the island. In fact choosing to visit forests such as Tepilora park won’t ask you more than wearing confortable shoes and bring a lot of enthusiasm (as well as a waterproof jacket in case of rain). The same if you choose to visit the area overlooking Costa Smeralda from the top of its pink hills; avoid to make it in the hottest hours and always cover your head.

What does trekking mean for you?

If you are trekking to challenge your ability or to experience something strong, Sardinia has got many interesting choices. The Selvaggio blu, a 9 days trek route among the hard rocks surrounding the blue sea of the Orosei Gulf on east coast, has become very popular in recent years. If you want to try something extraordinary, you can trek Mont’Albo in central Sardinia and camp and walk for four days amongst an amazing scenery still unknown to most of travellers and Sardinian, though.
Or maybe you would like to be surprised by spectacular Port Conte naturale reserve in the outskirts of Alghero in north west.
