Gutturu Mannu mountains and forest in Sardinia

Hiking is one of the best way to explore the Sardinian nature. The diverse landscape full of rugged cliffs and mountains offers routes for every level. Given the temperatures, it is advisable to walk in the spring or autumn, so that you do not suffer too much from the heat.

The island has several nature parks with beautiful walking routes. In addition, you can also compile your own route that leads past the various picturesque villages of Sardinia, possibly accompanied by a guide. We have already listed a few nature parks and other hiking areas for you, ordered by province from North to South:

Sinis -  Oristano

A peninsula on the west side of the island, one of the European Destinations of Excellence recognized by the European Commission. Many of the beaches and lagoons are protected, so the nature is unspoiled and activities as hunting and large gatherings are strictly regulated. The lakes contain salt water, but the rivers are fresh. As a result, there are various water birds (including flamingos) and special water plants. The Macchia Mediterranea, a colorful collection of shrubs and plants, is an attraction in itself, and in the Sinis peninsula is protected by the regional regulations. Both novice and advanced hikers will find routes to their liking here.
