Overview

This guide to 50 day walks in the mountainous north east of Sardinia, includes a mixture of walks exploring the limestone Ogliastra coast, the Golgo plateau, the barren Supramonte, the wild granite mountains of Genneragentu and Punta La Marmora. Many of the walking routes are tough, involving some scrambling, while other routes are more suited to less experienced walkers. Sardinia's intricate network of paths offer a wide range of challenges and a long, sunny walking season. This guide covers the highest and wildest parts of the island, in an area once proposed for a national park, using both recently waymarked trails and lesser-known shepherd's tracks. The route descriptions are illustrated with the author's own detailed contour mapping and photography and backed up with a glossary of both Sard and Italian words and phrases, as well as detailed information about local public transport services and accommodation services.
