A guidebook describing 50 day walks on the island of Sardinia. The routes cover the north east of Sardinia, including the Ogliastra coast, the Supramonte further inland, and the broad, high mountains of Gennergentu. These are the highest, wildest and most dramatic parts of Sardinia.
Routes include short, easy and popular walks as well as long, difficult and less frequented walks. As well as detailed route descriptions, the guide includes practical information on travel to and around Sardinia, language and currency, accommodation, mountain safety and details on the many sights along the way.
Nuoro is the largest town close to the highest mountains, and could be used as a base for several days, especially by walkers relying on bus services. Other useful bases with good access to a handful of walks include Oliena and Dorgali for the Supramonte and Ogliastra. Villages such as Baunei, Santa Maria, Lotzorai and Tortoli are popular with people exploring Ogliastra. The highest mountains of Gennargentu can be reached easily from Aritzo, Desulo, Tonara and Fonni.
