Vertical Sailing Tour Sardinia


Discovery with us the beauty of Sardinia combining together climbing and sailing. We

choose the remote island of San Pietro because it is quiet, uncontaminated and rich in

culture. During the week long cruise we will sail in the archipelagos of Sulcis exploring

miles of coastlines and islands in search of cliffs and crags where to stop and climb. On

our way we will encounter basalt crags and limestone cliffs with some astonishing climbing

routes; some of them will be bolted, others will have to be climbed “trad” placing nuts and

friends on your way up.
