Five Places to Visit on your Walking Holiday in Sardinia

Sardinia's spectacular walking trails allow keen walkers to explore every corner of the island. Here are some places we thing you should visit.

Pedra Longa

Pedra Longa, a natural wonder on the island, is a striking limestone rock formation located along the eastern coast of the Italian island of Sardinia. Its iconic 'spire' shape soars proudly from the azure sea, reaching an impressive height of 128 meters, making it one of the most towering rocky outcrops on the island. Embark on an exhilarating coastal journey, ascending along a winding path that leads to the breathtaking Pedra Longa limestone peaks. Along the way, you'll be treated to unparalleled panoramic views that stretch as far as the eye can see that will surely be a highlight of any walking holiday.

Golfo di Orosei national park


A walking holiday in Golfo di Orosei National Park is an immersive experience that allows you to connect with nature in one of Italy's most stunning coastal regions. As you set foot on the well-marked trails that meander through this pristine natural wonder, you'll find yourself surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. Towering limestone cliffs, sculpted by centuries of wind and water, rise majestically from the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean Sea. As you explore the park, you'll encounter hidden coves, secluded beaches, and emerald-green grottoes, each unveiling a unique facet of its beauty.

Ancient Nuraghe monuments

As you climb Monte Tiscali you're not only embarking on a physical adventure but also a historical one. At the summit, you'll uncover the remnants of ancient Nuraghe monuments, each whispering stories of a civilization long past. These enigmatic stone structures stand as a testament to the remarkable craftsmanship and architectural prowess of their builders. Against the backdrop of Tiscali's lofty heights, the Nuraghe monuments evoke a sense of awe and wonder, the perfect place to visit on your walking holiday.

Golgo Plateau

Nestled within one of the island's most picturesque mountain regions, the Golgo Plateau beckons adventurers  to embark on walking holidays, with its array of hiking trails and climbing routes. While this terrain exudes natural beauty, it's advisable to explore it with a seasoned guide due to the intricate Supramonte geography, which can easily lead to disorientation. Along these well-trodden paths, reminiscent of the age-old routes used by shepherds, you may cross paths with various animals, predominantly goats and donkeys, and occasionally encounter cows and pigs as you venture forth into this captivating landscape.

Gorropu Canyon

Embarking on a walking holiday to Gorropu Canyon is a journey into one of Europe's most awe-inspiring natural wonders. Nestled amidst the rugged beauty of Sardinia, this canyon stands as a testament to the forces of nature. As you traverse its rocky terrain and hike along its winding trails, you'll be enveloped by sheer limestone walls that rise dramatically, creating a magnificent, almost cathedral-like ambiance. The experience of walking through Gorropu Canyon is nothing short of spectacular, with its narrow passages and towering cliffs that have been sculpted by millennia of water erosion.
