Trekking in Sardinia


11 -18 May 2013



Minimum 6 participants, Maximum 15 participants

 

The program aims to discover different areas of the northern coast of the island of Sardinia. The island is known as "Mediterranean Sea’s small continent" as it offers completely different landscapes, within short distances. The trekking will cover the sandstone and limestone of Alghero, to the Caves of Neptunes facing a crystal clear sea, to the volcanic areas of Villanova Monteleone and Bosa. The hotels are in Alghero and in BosaAlghero is that rare combination of lovely old town, fine sandy beaches and international airport, all within a few miles.  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 flavor of Spanish and even a dash of Moorish. Two nights will be in Bosa, a lovely mediaeval town lying on the river Temo.
