A kingdom between sky and sea

Hiking Trail in Tavolara

Island of Tavolara is a majestic limestone mountain that rises to 565 meters above the sea. It’s a pearl of Gallura, located in a strait of sea among the most spectacular of all the Mediterranean. Tavolara appears like a mountain fallen from the sky, it remain suspended between the blue sea and the white clouds.

Reached Tavolara after one hour and a half walking, we'll reach the place called 'Pratone', from this incredible natural terrace we'll have incredible views over the Gulf of Olbia. Pratone is accessible by facing an equipped trail called Via Ferrata, it's absolutely necessary to have: Via Ferrata Kit, Helmet and Harness. Although it's needed to use the technical equipment, the level of difficulty is suitable for anyone who is trained and with no fear of heights (dizziness). For participants who don't feel sure to face via Ferrata, they should wait the group in 'Pratone'.

After Via Ferrata we'll reach Punta Cannone: It’s the top of the island and we’ll offer a panoramic view that extends from Capo Coda Cavallo to the Gulf of Olbia, until Corsica and Strait of Bonifacio. Unbelievable! On the top of Tavolara we'll have a break of 30 minutes ideal for eating the packed lunch.

After the breack we will start the descent. At the end of the day we'll have the possibility to enjoy the seaside and have a swim in Tavolara beach.
