From sandy shorelines eroded by the intense blue waters of the Mediterranean, to peaks and colorful landscapes in its interior, Sardinia is perfect for an active escape beyond the Dolomites.

The Mediterranean’s warm waters are a haven for active vacations and relaxation alike. And Sardinia, the largest of the Italian islands, and the second largest of the Mediterranean, offers hikers coastal trails and mountain tracks alike! The unique combination of beautiful coastline, pleasant climate, rich history, and diverse culture make Sardinia ripe for adventure. Its coasts are lined with white sand beaches, towering Limestone cliffs in fantastic shades of purple, gray, and black, and caves full of stalactites and stalagmites, surrounded by the blue green waters of the Sardinian sea.

Away from the shore is a harshly beautiful, wild landscape, characterized by mountain chains, forests, plateaus, and rivers. And everywhere on Sardinia there are traces of human settlements, ancient and rich in history and legends, dating as far back as the Neolithic Age. And did we mention the food!?  Not surprisingly, seafood figures prominently in Sardinian cuisine, as does wild boar, stews, and unusual pastas waiting to be discovered. Exploring the island never ceases to be extraordinary. What are you waiting for? Come join us in the Dolomites… and BEYOND!
