Responsible tourism: Sardinia hiking and snorkelling vacation
We take our promise to protect the natural environments featured in our tours seriously. For this very reason, many of our tours, like this one, focus on walking itineraries where the beauty of nature can be appreciated in the most sustainable, non-invasive manner possible. On this trip you will trek through the more remote western part of Sardinia, taking you into oak, pine and chestnut forests, across meadows and over springs, where flocks of sheep graze and olive trees dot the rocky hillsides. Expert naturalists will teach you about the region's geology and ecology, plant biodiversity and conservation of natural habitats. In addition to trekking, you will experience Sardinia's pristine underwater world while snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of S'archittu and Sa Mesa Longa. Led by certified professionals, you will learn about Sardinia's marine habitat and the measures locals and travelers alike can take to protect the seas precious ecosystem.
There's little doubt that tourism is a vital source of income for the island of Sardinia and its people. Large resorts, crowded beaches and fancy modern hotels abound on the island. That said, we have customized this tour with a different goal in mind: to bring the traveler to undiscovered places off the normal tourist track where you can experience a more authentic Sardinia. Not only will you trek to magical locations many tourists never see, you will also spend time with island natives, experts in archaeology, marine biology, geology, history and more, that will open the window to an entirely different place for you to see. In turn, your visit helps ensure these local people earn a fair wage and can maintain a sustainable lifestyle, one that helps protect the pristine natural and marine habitats of Sardinia. Even your lodgings are run by local people who will welcome you as if family, and help ensure that during your time here you feel right at home.
