A fun and exciting route that develops along the South West coast of Sardinia! From Portoscuso to Portopaglia, between wild and breathtaking scenery. A coastal stretch full of naturalistic, historical and geological charm. Accompanied by an expert guide, you will depart from Tonnara di Portoscuso, walking for the first part on volcanic soil with rich vegetation around it and among the remains of military structures. Here the tuna fishing activity is still alive, and we arrive at the tonnara of the ancient village of Portopaglia. Long sandy stretches that once formed large dunes, spectacular coves and Spanish towers embellish the area and bring you back to the island's past. For flower enthusiasts, in addition to the classic Mediterranean scrub, you can meet some particular species such as the mortar mushroom and the Carpobrotus commonly called Fico degli Ottentotti. There is so much to discover, a whole experience to live!
The time may be subject to changes that will be agreed by phone after booking in order to adapt the experience according to the time of year, weather conditions, temperatures, needs and possible visits to the sites.
The meeting point will be the beach of Porto Paglia, where you will meet the guide and you will leave a car for the return, since the trekking path starts from Porto Scuso in the direction of Porto Paglia.
Possibility to change the route with arrival at the archaeological site of the Nuraghe of Seruci instead of the Tonnara of Porto Paglia.
The route, to be covered at a slow pace of about 6/7 hours of walking with short breaks if necessary, involves the passage on coastal areas sometimes exposed therefore not indicated on rainy days but in any case not relevant even for those suffering from vertigo. The difference in height develops throughout the hike with a continuous rise/fall that becomes a bit tiring because of the sandy soil. On the second part, the path becomes a bit more wild with passages on sand and low Mediterranean vegetation interrupted by some oasis of juniper, with stops in some coves that in the right periods allows you to take a swim and stop for a break with packed lunch. The itinerary is equipped with some emergency exit points that only in case of real need allow you to interrupt the experience in advance.
POINTS OF INTEREST
There will be a small final aperitif with typical Sardinian products such as sausage, cheese and a glass of wine that may vary depending on the season.
