Get to know the Porto Conte Park in Alghero, in north-western Sardinia, with an exciting trek in the footsteps of the griffon vulture. You will take part in a tour amidst evocative scenery and spectacular views over the clear waters of Capo Caccia, inside the Prigionette wildlife reserve. Our guide will tell you many anecdotes of an area rich in history and unspoilt nature, over which the elegant griffon vulture dominates the air. Inside the park, you will find docile animals in the wild such as horses, donkeys, fallow deer and wild boar along the way.
