Kayaking Wild Sardinia
Sardinia – A World Apart
Our Sardinia kayaking trip is a unique new way to explore this ruggedly pastoral island ringed by an exquisitely clear turquoise blue sea. Sardinia is an ancient land with a language and culture all its own. Our exploration of Sardinia is a feast for the senses and an authentic journey in the heart of Europe’s last great wild island.
Kayak the Gulf of Orosei
Discover the stunningly beautiful and isolated Golfo di Orosei, one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Here, nearly 20 miles of beaches, grottos, and giant sea caves are backed by steep cliffs and a nature reserve that limits land access except at a couple of beaches. You’ll paddle through transparent, vividly hued water along a steep untracked landscape dotted with picture perfect beaches.
Hike the Supramonte
The Supramonte is a dramatic complex of limestone peaks and canyons that back onto the Golfo di Orosei. In the past, its deep winding canyons were the hideout of notorious Sardinian bandits. You’ll do a day hike led by an expert local guide well versed in the natural history and colorful secrets of the Supramonte.
Alghero, Sardinia’s Spanish Town
Journey across the scenic interior of Sardinia to the medieval walled city of Alghero, where the residents still speak Catalan dialect and maintain a proudly independent spirit. You’ll explore the tight-knit lattice of cobbled streets and enjoy a little of Spain in Italy.
Kayak Capo Caccia
Experience an unforgettable early morning paddle as you glide pass the ruins of a stone Genovese tower en route to the most prominent cape in western Sardinia and on to the entrance of the Grotta di Nettuno, a massive cave system that extends for over 12 miles.
La Maddalena Archipelago
The Maddalena Archipelago is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and arguable the best kayaking in the Mediterranean. You’ll spend several enjoyable hours paddling its clear waters and coves framed by weather carved granite, as well as enjoying the many other charms of these history rich islands.
Discover Sardinian Wine and Cuisine
Sardinia is renowned for its food and wine, and on this trip we enjoy primo locavore dining at Agriturismos and rural restaurants. Along the way, we’ll visit small wineries to sample the distinctive terroirs of Sardinia’s ancient Vermentino and Cannonau grape varietals.
I had a wonderful time and I’m so glad I decided to go! All three of my kayak excursions with Tofino Expeditions have been more than vacations, they have been life enriching and educational. A joy, thank you!!Jo Frey, WA View Trips
