See for yourself canyons and dizzy gorges, desert plateaus, lush forests and sinkholes; unknown and ever-changing landscapes will unfold in front of your eyes.
In the evening, have a well-deserved rest over the fire with a glass of wine – you’ll get familiar with the warm (and essential) welcome of the pinnetos (mountain shelters similar to cabins), which remind you of the housings in the ancient Nuragic times.
You’ll be surrounded by unique flora and fauna, by families of cautious mouflon, majestic golden eagles, and solitary goshawks.
Incantu de Sardigna (Sardinia’s charm) is more than just a simple hiking trail. It is a tread linking the communities around the Supramonte. It is a journey through the stories of those who challenged this wild massif, and the prize for those with enough strength to face it will be moments of total immersion with pristine nature.
As a work of art, this unforgettable trail holds the signature of Mario Calaresu, a mountaineer from Oliena who dedicated his life to the mountains, especially to the Supramonte. He worked as a weaver: the old shepherds pointed him the ways, and he connected them all by creating a unified trail which goes from the heart of the island to the sea, all the way passing through the communities of this mountain: Oliena, Orgosolo, Dorgali, Urzulei e Baunei. His trails come from his love for nature and his deep respect for the culture and community; only recently, Mario made it public because it can be finally be done without disturbing the shepherds’ lives who would dot these formidable lands.
