Selvaggio Blu Trekking – The wild coastal hike

Sardinia is a real gem when it comes to breathtaking bays and cliffs that act as a link between sea and land.

Join us on this incredible long-distance hike along ancient coastal paths in Sardinia, amidst wild landscapes, sea views and scrambling passages.

The tour usually starts in the small coastal town of Santa Maria Navarrese on the east coast of Sardinia. From there, the trail leads along the coast into the Supramonte mountains. During the Selvaggio Blu Trek we will sleep under the open sky or in improvised bivouac accommodation. This trip is a journey back to nature, leaving civilization behind and focusing on the essence of the hiking life. Along the way, we encounter unique geological formations, including limestone cliffs and deep gorges. The trail often takes us past hidden beaches and caves that are only accessible on foot, making this hike a true paradise for nature lovers!

However, the scenic beauty is not the only thing that makes the Selvaggio Blu Trek so remarkable. The rich culture and history of Sardinia are present everywhere and you will have the opportunity to interact with the locals and taste traditional Sardinian dishes. What are you waiting for? Join us on the Selvaggio Blu, the wildest long-distance hike in Sardinia!
