Trekking in the ex mining area

Tour along a preserved coast in south-west Sardinia

South-west coastline

Buggerru mines
Buggerru mines
This is a marvelous trail that goes mainly along the coast and through a WWF Oasis.
It shows some mining archaeology, scenic views and fascinating coves. Except for the last day which will be the most demanding, the other days are quite simple but very different from each other, too.
The area is so preserved that we’ll have to spend two nights in a tent.
A toothsome traditional Sardinian dinner will be an excellent farewell before your day of departure.

The itinerary is suitable to the trekking and life-in-nature lovers; good physical conditions strongly recommended.
