Sardinia’s highest peaks
Who said a holiday in Sardinia means only sea and beach? In the heart of the island, mountains rise up to over 1,800 metres above sea level and, in winter, delight ski enthusiasts who can launch themselves down their snow-covered slopes. The ski season is short, from December to March, but it can offer plenty of thrills.
We are in the Gennargentu Massif, wild and pristine. You can follow the paths winding through its forests, fragrant with thyme during the flowering season. We recommend heading to Punta La Marmora, Bruncu Spina and Spada to admire the surrounding panorama, magical in all seasons.
Along the way, be sure to stop to explore the villages, such as Desulo, Tonara and Ollolai. In Desulo, you can try carapigna, a slushy traditionally made from ice from the mountain tops. You can enjoy some nougat in Tonara, while Ollolai will treat you to the spectacle of the s’istrumpa, a Sardinian reinterpretation of Greco-Roman wrestling.
