Because Sardinia is not only about relaxing on the beach, there are other activities that you can enjoy as a couple or as a family… especially for nature lovers!
Gennargentu Mountains – Perfect for Hiking, Biking and Skiing
Located in central-southern Sardinia, there is a large massif that includes the highest peaks of Sardinia. A cluster of mountains that reach 1800 metres but are easy to ascend, thanks to multiple paths, by bike or walking.
Punta La Marmora (1834m) is the highest peak with Bruncu Spina following closely behind at 1829m, the rest of them are below 1800m; Monte Spada (1595m), Punta Erba Irdes (1676m) and Punta Paulinu (1792m).
From Arbatax or Oliena it should take less than an hour and a half by car for you to reach Gennargentu National Park to enjoy a different and wild day. Leaving the car in the entrance of the Park, you can take one of the many biking and trekking routes to explore the very well preserved natural environment.
