CAGLIARI – ARBATAX
We kick-start with a ride along the winding, coastal road to Villasimius, one of the most beautiful strips of coastline that exists on our island, with its towering cliffs and spectacular inlets of white sand and crystal clear waters. Surrounded by juniper woods, we will follow this exceptional coastline, visiting the best and most pristine coves and beaches of South Eastern Sardinia until we reach Arbatax, our first stop-over.
ARBATAX – CALA GONONE - ARBATAX
We set off the next morning along Eastern Sardinia’s oldest causeway until Cala Gonone, where at the port, mini cruise boats await you. You will cruise the staggeringly beautiful, secluded coves of the Gulf of Orosei, accessible only by sea. After this unforgettable excursion, we will make our way back to Arbatax.
ARBATAX - BOSA
On day 4 we will cross the island from east to west, venturing into Barbagia, a majestic mountain range stretching to the slopes of Gennargentu, cut by deep valleys and secluded holm oak forests where it is still possible to catch sight of royal eagles and the mouflon, Europe’s only species of wild sheep and a symbol of the most untamed environments. This is a wild and uncontaminated territory where customs and traditions have survived for millenniums.
You will be sad to leave the rugged mountain wilderness of Sardinia behind but not for too long as we approach the charming fishing town of Bosa. One of the most beautiful, historical towns in Italy, it lies along the only navigable river in Sardinia, the Temo. Here we will spend our next overnight stay, so take the rest of the day to explore this wonderful medieval town and get a real feel for the local culture.
BOSA – TORRE DEI CORSARI
From Bosa we will descend along the western coast until we reach the peninsula of Sinis, where we will visit some of the most beautiful beaches in the area. You can’t miss a visit to Tharros, an ancient city founded by the Phoenicians and later conquered by the Carthaginians and Romans, a cultural heritage of overwhelming beauty. From Tharros we will continue to head south until reaching Torre dei Corsari, a small seaside town dominated by immense golden, sandy shores which get lost in magnificent sand dunes, the highest in Europe, creating a landscape of breathtaking beauty.
TORRE DEI CORSARI – SANT’ANTIOCO
The following morning we will continue our raid discovering the scenic and unspoilt Costa Verde, which extends for 47 km in a sequence of dark and impressive cliffs leading down to the sea and Saharan-like deserts, intercalated with the fragrant Mediterranean shrublands, one of the true beauties of Sardinia as well as the Mediterranean. We will make our way through Sulcis, which was once one of the most important mining areas of the island. After the decline of the mining industry and eventual closure of the mines in the 1990s, the nature in the area has taken its revenge and has reclaimed what was once hers, creating a unique ecosystem which has now become part of the Geomineral Nature Park of Sardinia, a UNESCO heritage site since 1998. It will be impossible to visit all the park given its size but certain sites are a must see such as Porto Flavia, a sea harbour with spectacular views of the Pan di Zucchero. In the afternoon we will reach the ancient merchant harbour of the beautiful island of Sant’Antioco, where we stop for our next overnight stay.
SANT’ANTIOCO - CAGLIARI
We will devote the last day of the tour to exploring the south/west,with its overhanging cliffs and inlets of fine, white sand and crystalline waters, reminiscent of the Caribbean. After admiring the beautiful beaches of Capo Spartivento and Chia, as we make our way back to Cagliari we will stop to visit Nora, an ancient city founded by the Phoenicians and later inhabited by the Carthaginians and Romans, yet another example of the countless and fascinating cluster of historic sites that our island has to offer.
After checking out, a member of our staff will accompany you to the port/airport as indicated on your booking confirmation.
