2nd day: From Cala di Luna to Cala Sisine
Excursion from Cala Luna to Cala Sisine, two of the most famous and beautiful beaches in this part of Sardinia. Departure from the port of Santa Maria Navarrese; by dinghy we reach the splendid Cala Luna where our itinerary begins. An easy route through bold limestone spires and Mediterranean scrub, in complete isolation. Before reaching Cala Sisine we will visit some Baunesi shepherds' sheepfolds which are still in good condition. In the evening, return by dinghy to the hotel in Santa Maria Navarrese. Transfer for dinner at the typical Golgo refuge, located in the heart of the plateau of the same name. 650 metres of ascent, 5 hours of walking.
Day 3: Excursion from Cala Sisine to Golgo
Departure from the port of Santa Maria Navarrese, where we meet the dinghy that takes us to Cala Sisine.
From the famous and beautiful beach we ascend the codula of Sisine, along a path that crosses the dry bed of the torrent that has carved and shaped the gorge over the millennia. Having passed the codula with its high walls, we stop for a packed lunch in the locality of Ololbissi. After the break, we continue along the path that now skirts the crest of the cliffs above Bacu Mudaloru: a spectacular viewpoint over the Gulf of Orosei and impressive walls of white and orange limestone that rise directly from the sea.
On reaching the plateau, we stop to admire the small country church of San Pietro and some thousand-year-old trees. Our day ends with a visit to the Faccia Litica and the Albu nuraghe. We return to Santa Maria Navarrese to the hotel for dinner. 450 metres uphill, 5 hours' walk.
Day 4: Excursion to Cala Goloritzé
Excursion to Cala Goloritzè and its rocky spire. Transfer to the Golgo and departure on foot for the spectacular descent to the sea, passing by the Serra Salinas viewpoint, which overlooks the cove from a height of 450 metres. After admiring the splendid panorama, we start our descent towards the Goloritzè beach, dominated by the rock arch and the splendid 150 metre-high limestone spire, which is visited by climbers from all over Europe. In the afternoon, we return to Golgo along the Bacu Goloritzè and visit the 290 metre-deep chasm of Golgo. Return to Santa Maria Navarrese for a well-deserved rest and dinner. A 700-metre climb, 5-hour walk.
Day 5: From Golgo to Pedra Longa via Punta Giradili
Transfer from Santa Maria Navarrese to the Golgo plateau. On foot, along a very scenic route we reach Punta Giradili 780m, from where the view sweeps across the Gulf of Arbatax towards the sea and the peaks of Gennargentu inland.
From the summit, the route is easy and leads us to the Us Piggius sheepfold, where one of the most beautiful stretches of the entire trek begins: the narrow and panoramic Cengia Giradili that goes round the imposing wall of P.ta Giradili and down to the sea and along the coast to Pedra Longa. After a well-deserved rest on the beach, we resume our trek to Santa Maria Navarrese. 150 metres uphill, 5 hours' walk.
Day 6: Gorropu Gorge
Visit to the famous and wild Gorropu Gorge, the deepest canyon in Italy. The gorge is about 1.5 km long and in some places it sinks for almost 500 metres and in the narrowest places it is 4-5 metres wide. A unique place, an ideal destination for trekking lovers.
Transfer from Santa Maria Navarrese to Genna Silana at approximately 1010 m above sea level, where our trek begins with a 4 km downhill stretch to the entrance of the gorge at approximately 350 m above sea level. A unique environment among centuries-old trees and imposing walls more than 400 metres high. End of the excursion in the mid-afternoon and transfer to Olbia for the last evening in Sardinia.
