Description

The hike links S. Maria Navarrese to Cala Sisine in the Orosei Gulf, through different and quite challenging paths in which the guiding of an expert is important to fully enjoy the experience.

The stages of the trek will be quite long, about 5-6 hours of walking each day. Some are more technical with exposed passages, small climbs up to grade III and rappelling.

All these situations will be handled safely by our Guides who will explain how to move from time to time.

Rope will be used in some more exposed parts, to belay and to descent cliffs. Usually you stop sleeping in farms along the way or you bivouac, but there’s also another experience waiting for you: cabins of our sailboat are ready to welcome you!

Using a rubber tender we will easy reach the beaches of the starting day trek. The tender everyday will wait us at the end of the daily trek and bring us back on the boat.

On the sailing boat we will get food, nice shower and enjoy relax moments. In case you will want to skip a daily trek part, you will be able to stay on the boat and just sail to the next bay, waiting for the group.

Itinerary

Arriving day, we will have the time to have a briefing to start the trekking in the best way possible. We will eat dinner together and then sleep on the boat.

The boat will bring us to the starting point of the trekking. We will walk for about 6 hours in the direction of Portu Cuau, our destination for the first day where the boat will wait for us.

Cala Goloritzé is where we are heading on day three. We will walk through some sheep pen before trekking down to the bay, where the light blue water will leave you speechless and where we’ll spend the night on board of the sailboat.

This day you will test yourselves with some climbing, our guides are ready to take you through this difficult part, but you will finally thank them when you will see Cala Mariolu! We’ll sleep in this breath-taking bay to rest after the long day.

We are heading to Cala Biriola, to reach through some more climbing and walking into the woods surrounding the bay. We’ll rest on these crystal clear waters before our last day of satisfying efforts.

Ready for our last destination? Day six we’ll trek to the wonderful Cala Sisine, where we’ll share the beauty of the bay and spend the night.

Flying day, we’ll sail back to Santa Maria Navarrese so that you can enjoy also the sailing on board of our boat before leaving to the airport.
