Trekking Selvaggio Blu: described in the tourist Guides as the most difficult trekking in Italy and named among the 100 most spectacular trails in the world! Today it is no longer as wild as it was at the time of the first discoverers, but it remains a technical and challenging hiking trail that winds along the jagged coasts of the Gulf of Orosei, between the Supramonte di Baunei and that of Dorgali.

It was conceived in the '80s by two Italian climbers, who, fascinated by the wild beauty of this stretch of coast, have painstakingly covered tracts of shepherds' paths and ancient mule-mills of the late 19th century charcoal, joining them with hardly discovered paths between the limestone and the vegetation of the supramonte.
The result is an itinerary suspended on the extreme edge of a vertical cliff, which between Cale and mule track, starting from Pedra Longa reaches Cala Sisine.

Overnight stays are in tents or small spartan constructions sheperd used as sheep pen. Daily the group will be joined by the staff who will deliver breakfast, water, packed lunch and will collect the luggage that together with the dinner will be delivered directly to the next site.

Program details

  • DAY 1: at 18:00 meeting at Santa Maria Navarrese with the alpine Guide and equipment check. Dinner and overnight stay in hotel.
  • DAY 2: GENNIRCO – transfer to Pedra Longa.

From here you arrive to the camp site. Overnight in tent. +800m -200m 5h
  • DAY 3: PORTO CUAU – the trail develops along the cliff of Capo Monte Santo and with some particular passages descents on juniper stairs equipped by the shepherds to Bacu Tenadili. An ascent to the opposite side allows to familiarize with climbing techniques thanks to short steps of III°. Dinner and overnight in tent. +200m -800m 6h
  • DAY 4: CALA GOLORITZÈ – at high altitude stow on the sea until Bacu Sonnuli valley, here begins the exciting suspented path that leads to Punta Salinas.

Overnight in tent. +600m -600m 6h
  • DAY 5: OLOBISSI – the most challenging, but also the funniest leg of the trek thanks to passages that reserve spectacular views of the crystal clear see waters.

  • DAY 6: CALA SISINE – also in this last leg of the trek alternates hiking with climbing of IV° and 4 abseils in double rope, although overall the trail is smoother and makes the route less strenuous than the previous one.
