Walking grade

Grade 4

This Grade 4 moderate holiday includes full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain and is likely to include an element of sightseeing as well. Half day walking will probably include about 3 hours of walking, with full days having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to about 600m. See the 'Proposed Itinerary' section for more information. 

Sardinia is different from many destinations in that there are not designated public rights of way. However, permission is sought from differing land owners for permission to walk. This means each walk is truly unique! Paths can be tricky in places, stony, rough rocky terrain with some tricky climbs. Some people may find walking poles a help for these sections.


Classic Collection

Thoughtfully designed, meticulously planned, carefully graded, and expertly guided walking tours and hiking holidays along well-loved and off-the-beaten-track footpaths.


Holiday Highlights

  • Indulge in an array of delightful walks along hidden Sardinian footpaths and secluded islands.
  • Explore hidden trails with expert local guide Claudio for an authentic Sardinian adventure.
  • Unwind at our waterfront hotel, embracing a serene, laid-back coastal ambiance.
  • Explore inland mountains for a unique perspective on Sardinia's beauty.

Immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of northeast Sardinia's coastline, particularly the renowned Costa Smeralda, often hailed as one of Europe's most picturesque shores. The allure lies in its unspoiled charm, where each bend reveals pristine beaches, cerulean waters, and captivating rocky landscapes.

Sardinia, the Mediterranean's second-largest island, harbors a secret: its coastlines have remained untouched due to their former military use. Now, as armed forces have retreated, these natural wonders remain untouched, offering a rare opportunity for exploration. The low mountains, rising merely 500 meters, boast trails and rock formations known to only a few intrepid hikers.

This exceptional program was crafted in collaboration with our knowledgeable local guide, Claudio. His expertise unveils not just unmarked paths, but the area's rich history, flora, and fauna. Participants who venture here in spring are greeted by a riot of colourful flowers. Some routes wind near Claudio’s home in San Pantaleo, while others meander along the coast or weave through hills, bordered by characteristic Mediterranean vegetation like tamarisk, myrtle, and rockrose. Inland, wind and rain have sculpted rocks into fascinating forms.

A highlight of the expedition is a ferry ride to La Maddalena island, followed by a stroll across the causeway to Caprera, where Giuseppe Garibaldi spent his final years. The trip is not just a physical exploration; it's an immersion in Sardinia's rich history, geography, nature, culture, and social life, all generously shared by our esteemed guide, Claudio.

This experience promises more than a hiking adventure; it's an encounter with the essence of Sardinia, a chance to wander amidst its natural wonders and historical legacies, making it an unforgettable retreat in an idyllic paradise.

Passports and Visas

European Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

For some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.


Included in your holiday cost are delightful breakfasts and dinners. Although drinks during meal times and lunches are not included, you'll find convenient supermarkets and bakeries nearby to easily acquire provisions for packed lunches.

During four evenings, indulge in splendid buffet dinners meticulously prepared at the hotel. On two other nights, venture beyond the hotel premises to savour the local flavours. One of these experiences unfolds at a renowned fish restaurant, where the ocean's bounty is transformed. The second a highly regarded by the locals pizzeria. Your final night takes you to a charming farmhouse, immersing you in the heart of Sardinian culinary traditions. Here, a carefully curated tasting menu promises an authentic exploration of the region's gastronomic treasures.

Please note that in Italy it is customary to pay for water consumed at the dinner table estimating around €2-3 per 0.75cl bottle.

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

It’s a condition of booking that you obtain adequate travel insurance, from a reputable provider, to undertake the holiday, including UK trips chiefly due to the cancellation element of cover.

The policy must cover the period from the date of booking to the last day of your trip and should include, as a minimum, cover for: medical expenses (including the consequences of a Covid positive test result), mountain rescue including helicopter rescue, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment and shall not have exclusion clauses limiting cover for the activities you will partake in on your trip, including altitudes reached in the holiday arrangement. It is your responsibility to check that your policy is adequate for the nature and destination of the holiday booked.

Once you have obtained your travel insurance, please provide us with the name of your travel insurer, the policy number and the insurer’s 24 hour emergency assistance number.

In the event that you fail to obtain suitable Travel Insurance we shall not be liable for any costs incurred or claims made against us due to your failure to comply with this term.

If travelling outside the UK you must carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested to do so by RWH Travel staff, tour leaders or suppliers. No refunds will be made should you be excluded from the walking programme through being uninsured or you being unable to demonstrate that you are insured.

Our house broker MPI should be considered for whom we are an affiliate and contact information is on our website and will be referred to in your booking confirmation.

If you are travelling to an EU country or Switzerland please also ensure that you have either an existing valid EU EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card) or a valid UK GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card). You can apply for a UK GHIC free of charge on the NHS website at https://services.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/cra/start.


Starting January 1st, 2021, you, as a UK traveller, can continue using your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) throughout its valid five-year period, granting you access to medical assistance during your holiday until its expiry date. Be aware, though, that this coverage will no longer extend to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland. In case you don't have a valid EHIC, you can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replace the EHIC as it gets phased out.

It's essential to emphasize that the EHIC/GHIC, while valuable, should not be regarded as a substitute for comprehensive medical or travel insurance. For your peace of mind and comprehensive coverage, considering additional insurance is highly recommended.

Stay alert, stay safe, and make the most of your travels!
