Arrivalin Orosei, dinner and overnight
Trekking from Pedra Longa to Cengia Giradili and Golgo plateau
The day begins with the transfer from S.M. Navarrese towards the coastal resort of “Pedra longa”, also known as the imposing limestone cliff that stands between the mountains and the crystal clear sea.
The path runs along the sea for a short distance and then goes up towards “Cengia Giradili”, a beautiful vertical passage on the side of the mountain consisting of a mule track with a unique view on the sea and on the valley below. Proceeding along the path, we pass through “Us Piggius” where we will visit the first fold. From here we reach our mountain hut where we will have a dinner and overnight.
Trekking from Golgo to Punta Salinas and Cala Goloritze
Today’s trek will take us to “Punta Salinas” passing through the ancient folds “Su Runcu” e “Su Pressu”, one of the most beautiful panoramic points of the Gulf of Orosei. Here we will make a short stop to observe one of the most magical places in the Supramonte. A descent along a stony path brings us into the gorge of “Bacu Goloritzè” up to the homonymous beach, Unesco heritage and one of the most beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Orosei.
In the afternoon we climb up the path until we reach the “Golgo” plateau, we will visit the natural basaltic rock pools, used in the nuraghic age as water tanks and the “Su Sterru” chasm, 270 meters deep. We reach our shelter where we will have a dinner and overnight.
Trekking from Golgo to Cala Mariolu
Today’s trek will lead us to discover one of the most beautiful and fascinating coves of the Gulf of Orosei Ispùligidenie or Cala Mariolu. We will visit the ancient Cuiles de S’Arcu ‘and Tasaru, and then we will begin to descend gently before tackling the most demanding part of the trek: the so-called Iscala’ and Fustes, or steep stairs made from juniper branches inserted into the rocks. After this stretch of the path, the descent turns into an easy path and brings us to the sea. After a well-deserved break on the beach, we will reach our shelter where we will have a dinner and spend the night to recover the energy.
