Welcome to our multi-day tour to La Maddalena Archipelago National Park and Costa Smeralda

 

On this page you can find many ideas to plan your next kayak holiday in Sardinia with your family, your friends or your kayak club.

Our KAYAK BASE CAMP (click here to read more about the BASE CAMP) is between La Maddalena Archipelago and Costa Smeralda, from here we can run 5 different paths and moving the kayaks by trailer we can run many other trips in the Archipelago, in Costa Smeralda, Golfo Aranci and so on.

 

Best months to discover Sardinia on a multi-day tour are:

  • second half of May
  • June
  • first half of July
  • September

La Maddalena Archipelago is an authentic paradise of 7 islands surrounded by an emerald and unpolluted sea and immersed in a spectacular naturalistic area with the typical Sardinian rocks and the lush Mediterranean vegetation which especially in summer is heavily scented with myrtle.

All along the coastline beautiful coves and ancient fortifications, dolphins can sometimes be spotted!!!

 

We can design the tour on your specific needs and desires:

- all trips starting from our KAYAK BASE CAMP if you want to wake up and jump in the kayak and go !

- some trips from the BASE CAMP and others moving a little bit by car/van and kayak trailer if you want to see Costa Smeralda and other places

- you can also choose to sleep in the BASE CAMP (in bungalow or tent) or in my village (San Pantaleo) to enjoy the local lifestyle
