The idea that there are countless opportunities for hikers and mountain climbers seems exotic. And exactly that is the attraction: To travel Sardinia as a mountain holiday destination is a totally new experience. In contrast to the neighbouring island, Corsica, Sardinia cannot claim any exceptionally lofty heights (the highest peak, the Punta la Marmora, measures only 1833m); however, it does offer other specialities. They include the deep, winding gorges, whose crossing is very challenging to the hiker: "torrentism," known at home as canyoning, is the magic word here which is continually finding new friends. Speleologists will find undreamt-of forms in the "underworld" of the karstic landscape. And some steep walls are still waiting for their first contact with human feet - climbers have the choice between granite, lime, or basalt! Yet the pleasurable walks and adventure tours amidst the diverse countryside apply the finishing touch of all mountain-sport activities on Sardinia.
