Overview

Climbing and sailing: a chance to experience rock and water at the same time. What better place for this than Sardinia? In addition to emerald seas and pristine beaches, this island boasts towering cliffs and unique rock formations just waiting to be climbed! Limestone, granite or basalt, steep rooves or techy slabs - there's something for all styles of climber in Sardinia. After boarding the boat in Costa Smeralda, you'll set sail to Tavolara, making a few hops (and plenty of stops to climb) to reach the Gulf of Orosei and Baunei. Being on board a boat allows you to go from cliff to cliff exploring hidden bays and swimming in crystal clear waters, admiring the island from a new vantage point. But don't be fooled, this isn't a 5* holiday - you're part of a crew so expect to help out with sailing manoeuvres and basic navigation!

Cala Gonone

We'll start the day by sailing to Cala Fuili, where you can climb on a cliff right over the sea. The rock here is well-bolted abrasive limestone, offering beautiful vertical routes full of pockets for all levels. If there's enough time, we'll also head to the Grotte del Bue Marino, which was once the habitat of the monk seal.

Cannigione + departure

Pack your bags and check out at 9am. If you're keen for a final climb, we can organise a day in S. Pantaleo or Capo Testa. Then it's time to say goodbye to your Mapo Tapo crew - hopefully we'll see you again soon at the crag!

The program is very flexible to take into account weather conditions, climbing level, and endurance of the group

Sardinia, Italy

Sardinia is a place where rocks and sea find a new dimension

Sardinia is a place where rocks and sea find a new dimension and merge into one, creating a unique set of colors, sceneries and emotions. Climbing here is a recent discovery of the ‘80s,  but has been continuously developed over the past 4 decades. Today the island boasts more than 4000 routes and a good number of boulders. Limestone is king, but you will also find some granite and basalt jewels with styles ranging from sketchy slabs to steep overhangs. The island has something for all rock climbers - you only need a local to help show you the best spots!

Climbing Skills

Climbing Skills

There is no minimum level required for this trip as you will be accompanied at all times by a certified guide. However, due to the nature of Sardinia's crags, you will get the most out of the trip if you already have a little climbing experience and good level of fitness!

Life on board

Life on board

When on board, you're part of a crew and are therefore expected to chip in with certain tasks: navigating, cooking, preparing the equipment etc. Don't worry, though, the skipper will show you the ropes, and above all it's a lot of fun!

Liability

Liability

Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. For any inaccuracies, however, we cannot accept any liability. Rock climbing is a risky sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge and skills not go outdoors alone.
