Via Ferrata di Tavolara

Via Ferrata di Tavolara

The Via Ferrata di Tavolara is the final part of a beautiful and strenuous trekking that reaches the summit of Punta Cannone (564m asl). There is a view on top that can take your breath away, embracing the island of Tavolara, the shore line of Costa Smeralda and all the little islands in north Sardinia.

The journey starts at Cala Finanza, where the group meets and takes a 10 minutes boat ride to reach the island. Once on the island, the path gets into a thick oak forest at the base of the mountain, becoming steeper and harder until ropes are necessary to overcome some otherwise deadly passages. 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.

Due to high temperatures our summer tours start at 7am, reaching the summit by 11am and returning by lunch time.
