This was a 4wheel drive excursion that I can really recommend

This was a 4wheel drive excursion that I can really recommend. Claudio the owner can alter the itinerary to suit your wishes. We could really feel the pride he has for his island and the countryside. You reach places you would never know of and learn a lot from him....

Sardinië

Aangezien Sardinië toch nog redelijk onontdekt is, is het lastig om de mooiste plekjes te vinden. Een hele goede oplossing daarvoor is door met een jeepsafari mee te gaan. Sardinian Discovery, www.sardiniandiscovery.com, biedt tochten aan door heel Sardinië, waarbij...

Trekking Sardinia


Destination: Sardinia west (Alghero, Bosa, Villanova Monteleone, Cuglieri, Santulussurgiu, Montiferru)
Activity: hiking
Duration: 5 days - 4 nights
Level: suitable for regular hill-walkers

Group size: 5  - 12 participants

SardinianDiscovery.com offers you an unforgettable experience through the west side of Sardinia with its white sandy beaches, high cliffs, wildlife, ancient villages, old craftsmanship traditions; starting from the sea level we reach the highest area up to 1000 metres !

Sardinia is known as "Mediterranean Sea’s small continent" as it offers completely different landscapes, cultures, traditions and even languages within short distances. This travel will cover from the sandstone and limestone of Alghero, to the Caves of Neptunes facing a crystal clear sea, to the volcanic areas of Villanova Monteleone, Bosa and Santu Lussurgiu. Alghero is that rare combination of lovely old town, fine sandy beaches.  Bound on three seaward sides by great stone bastions and guarded to landward by a series of stone towers, Alghero's landmark churches and small squares are nodes in a network of narrow, paved and cobbled ways - Italian, but with a strong flavour of Catalan and even a dash of Moorish. One night will be in Bosa, a lovely mediaeval town lying on the river Temo, and the last night in Santu Lussurgiu, an ancient village rich of handcraft traditions and amazing corners. You will never forget the delicious wine and food produced in Sardinia combined with the hospitality of the local people.
