Overview

Climbing and sailing: a chance to experience rock and water at the same time. What better place for this than Sardinia? In addition to emerald seas and pristine beaches, this island boasts towering cliffs and unique rock formations just waiting to be climbed! Limestone, granite or basalt, steep rooves or techy slabs - there's something for all styles of climber in Sardinia. After boarding the boat in Costa Smeralda, you'll set sail to Tavolara, making a few hops (and plenty of stops to climb) to reach the Gulf of Orosei and Baunei. Being on board a boat allows you to go from cliff to cliff exploring hidden bays and swimming in crystal clear waters, admiring the island from a new vantage point. But don't be fooled, this isn't a 5* holiday - you're part of a crew so expect to help out with sailing manoeuvres and basic navigation!

Highlights

Climbing

Sardinia is one of the best climbing locations in Europe. It has such a multitude of crags and climbing problems to allow climbing in any season. The mild temperature in the winter season makes Sardinia a great destination to escape the bad weather and enjoy climbing in the sun.

Sailing

Sardinia is an outstanding playground for sailing with numerous worldclass moorings sheltered from all winds. We'll sail from the north to the centre east of the island. It's also possible to request a certificate of sailed miles.

Sardinia, Italy

Sardinia is a place where rocks and sea find a new dimension...


Sardinia is a place where rocks and sea find a new dimension and merge into one, creating a unique set of colors, sceneries and emotions. Climbing here is a recent discovery of the ‘80s,  but has been continuously developed over the past 4 decades. Today the island boasts more than 4000 routes and a good number of boulders. Limestone is king, but you will also find some granite and basalt jewels with styles ranging from sketchy slabs to steep overhangs. The island has something for all rock climbers - you only need a local to help show you the best spots!
