This is a real adventure! A journey of 8 days through Sardinia from east to west, in the company of cute donkeys and three local guides. You will start from the characteristic beach of Cartoe, and with stages of about 20 km per day, you will arrive at the beaches of Bosa on the exact other side of Sardinia. You will live the ritual of returning to the sea on the other side of the coast of water, filled in a bottle on the coast opposite the departure. During the trip you will stop at numerous sites of natural, cultural and archaeological interest, sometimes prolonging your lunch break. In the evening you will find accommodation in local farmhouses and bed and breakfast, to enjoy the gastronomic delicacies of the area, during the dinners organized by local chefs. The route includes eight stages, united by the beauty of small towns, which retain an ancient structure, with cobbled streets, small squares and rural architecture. And from the beauty of the landscapes with uncontaminated forests, paths, springs and streams, immersed in the most authentic places of Sardinia. In short, we wrote it at the beginning: this is a real adventure!
