Why does Sardinia boasts some of the longest-living people in the world? In modern times, how is it possible to keep ancient traditions alive? How can the island cultures of the mountains and the sea be so different within just a few miles? Do you think it’s possible to enjoy a swim in Europe in waters as clear as the Caribbean? What does Hawaii have in common with Sardinia besides the beautiful sea?
On our tours either by bicyle and on foot and by van you can answer these questions for yourself, discovering the second largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily and before Cyprus. Sardinia (Sardegna in Italian) is a paradise offering over a thousand miles of coastline, rugged mountains up to 6,000 feet, a unique indigenous vegetation called macchia mediterranea (maquis in English, a type of ground cover), a very mild climate, and villages with millenary traditions kept alive by the locals.
About the Sardinia Region
On these journeys you’ll learn about the unique indigenous grapes and the distinctive recipes of the Sardinian cuisine, and meet local shepherds, fishermen, cheese makers and other Sardi who have been living here in balance with nature, animals (there are approximately 2 million people and 3 millions sheep on the island!) following the practices of their ancestors for centuries.
