The Great Trail of Gennargentu

Great Trail of Gennargentu, trekking in the MediterraneanYou may know that Sardinia, although being a very large island, is so scarcely populated and covered with wild and broad mountainous areas that only brigands and the military have a faint understanding of its entire morphology.

Starting from the southern point of the National Park of the Orosei Bay and Gennargentu, the Great Trail of Gennargentu crosses the highest peaks of Sardinia. The itinerary develops on a total of 40 kilometers to walk during three days, among plateaus, canyons and high mountains from where to gaze at 360 degrees. Passing from Punta Lamarmora you will walk on a wild and uncontaminated territory, on juniper forests and vast open spaces populated by the Golden Eagle, the Mouflon and the wild cat just to name a few.
