CLIMBING ON A PARADISE ISLAND IN THE MEDITERRANEAN
Sardinia is one of the best climbing locations in the Mediterranean. It has such a multitude of crags and climbing problems to allow climbing in any season. The mild temperature in the winter season makes Sardinia a great destination to escape the bad weather and enjoy climbing in the sun.
Sardinia is currently bolted with almost 4000 sport routes and 1000 multipitches. This is the cumulative work of international top climbers and local passionate joining forces and experience to create and maintain climbing problems of all grades.
As in many other Mediterranean islands the rock formation varies from limestone to granite and basalt. The majority of sport routes are bolted on solid limestone, leaving the granite unspoiled for classical trad climbing. From vertical slabs to overhanging tufas and from multipitches to trad climbing Sardina is a colossal playground for climbers, offering all sorts of possibilities.
If you are coming to Sardinia and want a short climbing course, get in touch and we will tailor one to fit your holiday. Whether you never climbed before or have only indoor experience we have what you need.
Base courses start with top-roping, belaying and building confidence with outdoor climbing, moving up to lead-climbing and anchoring techniques.
Our Climbing Camps are week-long courses lead by professional IFMGA mountain guides.
Every camp starts on Sunday and ends on the following Saturday, with Wednesday off. All courses include 6 days climbing course, 2 dinners on a organic farm, all climbing equipment and the possibility to swap one day to experience canyoning or abseiling.
There's few things you need to enjoy climbing a Multi-Pitches: lead-climbing 5b at least, experience in belaying a lead-climber, abseiling ...and a brave attitude of course!
We provide experienced instructors and all equipment. Climb up to 400 meters high crags, immersed in the wilderness of the Supramonte or facing the blue Mediterranean sea. No need to to wait years, just do it!
The Riu Pitrisconi is open to beginners and is probably the funniest canyon in Sardinia. It is located in San Teodoro near Olbia and has water all year around.
The Riu Pitrisconi has a long sequence of deep pools and it is possible either abseil or jump into the majority of pools. It is immersed in the green and is the perfect alternative to the beach on hot summer days.
The Codula Fuili is a dry and suggestive gorge located just above Cala Gonone, ending right at the beach of Fuili.
The Codula Fuili can be descended even in the summer, as it is mostly on shade. Attendees must be familiar in walking on very uneven terrain, as the approach takes 30 minutes walk on a river bad clustered with slippery rocks. Suitable to beginners and families (12 yo minimum).
The trekking of Bacu Padente wiggles around the crest of mountains just above the sea of Baunei.
You'll be awed by the superb panorama witnessed from the top of cliffs and the passages into caves and natural arches. To fully enjoy Bacu Padente you need minimal abseiling experience and no fear of heights.
The Selvaggio Blu is the hardest and most beautiful trekking in Italy. And it is more than just a long trek, the Selvaggio Blu is a thorough mountaineering experience.
The entire trek takes 6 days walking on top of a remote coast through forests, caves and dry rivers. The labyrinthine paths end abruptly at the edge of cliffs and deep gorges, giving you a chance to abseil and climb via-ferratas.
GREAT TRAIL OF GENNARGENTU
The Great Trail of Gennargentu is a three days trekking crossing the highest mountains of Sardinia. It is a fairly hard trekking with a total gain of 2500 meters and 40 kilometers walk on uneven mountain paths.
Just like our other extreme trails, nights will be spent on ancient shepherds' huts, experiencing the true Sardinian wilderness.
GREAT TRAIL OF SUPRAMONTE
The Great Trail of Supramonte has already become a classical. With its 4 days walking on the wildest region of Sardinia it is one of the most enchanting trails in the Mediterranean.
The path wiggles for 50 kilometers discovering ancient Nuraghi, hidden springs, breathtaking plateaus, deep gorges and thick oak forests.
VIA FERRATA PENTUMAS
The Via Ferrata di Badde Pentumas is located on a widening of a long and deep canyon, immersed in a wild and atmospheric landscape.
The path to reach the start of the Via Ferrata Pentumas enters the canyon and follows the ancient riverbed, walking through oak trees until the walls become so high that only a Via Ferrata could take anyone out of it.
VIA FERRATA DEL CABIROL
The Via Ferrata del Cabirol, located on the sea stack of Capo Caccia (10 km north of Alghero), is probably the best one in Sardinia.
It follows a natural series of exposed horizontal ledges, hanging 100 metres above the blue sea below. The panorama is truly breath-taking and anyone, from kids to elderly people, can enjoy it.
VIA FERRATA TAVOLARA
Part of a long trekking to reach the summit of the island of Tavolara, where the itinerary starts from the sea and through a thick forest it climbs the steep towards the top.
When the limestone crag becomes nearly vertical, the Via Ferrata di Tavolara is the only solution to reach the summit and enjoy a break with an immense view over the coast.
