Sardinia has many excellent choices when it comes to hiking journeys. Most of the time it's either a route through the mountainous interior, or along the coast. Why not have both? We created a 6-day hiking route that combines the very best Sardinia has to offer. It's a wild walk, as the name of this trail Via Selvaggia Sardinia in Italian suggests. You will follow small pathways across the Supramonte range, continuously surrounded by fragrant shrubs, craggy peaks and if you're lucky wildlife like the mouflon. The route briefly touches the east coast, stunning seascapes guaranteed!

The Via Selvaggia Sardinia is not just about hiking in pristine nature. The pace of life in the centuries old villages is slow, just what you need after a long day on the trail. Wind down and enjoy the incredible Sardinian cuisine. You don't have to worry about the logistics of reserving the posadas (local guesthouses). We'll take care of that for you, so all you have to do is enjoy this unforgettable adventure.

Fonni is the highest town in Sardinia and a great place to gear up for your trek across the Supramonte range. Check out the beautiful murals!

Passo di Correboi - Passo Ghenna Silana

Duration: 07:50 h
Distance: 23 km
Ascent: 830 m
Descent: 1070 m
From Fonni you'll take a taxi to one of the highest mountain passes in Sardinia, Passo di Correboi (1246 m). From here you head east into the Supramonte mountains. You stay at higher altitude, though the trail goes up and down through barren rocky terrain and pine forest. Make sure you carry enough water for the day (at least 3 liters)! You finish the day on another mountain pass, Passo Ghenna Silana.

Passo Ghenna Silana - Rifugio Gorropu

Duration: 06:00 h
Distance: 20 km
Ascent: 300 m
Descent: 940 m
From your accommodation on the Ghenna Silana pass, you descend in a northern direction towards the Flumineddu river. When you reach the river you are standing at the entrance of one of the deepest gorges in Europe and a truly iconic landmark on Sardinia: the Goroppu Canyon. On either side the limestone walls are 400 meters high and at some place it's as narrow as 5 meters. At the gorge you cross the river and you follow the Flumineddu downstream through the forest. Close to the hill called Monte Tundu, you cross the river again and continue across the farmland to the brilliant Rifugio Gorropu.
