Overview

Sardinia is the geologically the oldest land in Europe, fossil finds on the schist bedrock and the 550-600 million years old paleozoic sandstone are the real testimony of that period. The first layers are made up of continental sediments that constitute the base of this ancient land, the latter being composed of marine sediments, which often hide the fossil remains of the creatures that populated the sea. Archeocatines, Trilobites, Briozoids, and tetracorals are just a few of the fossils found in Sardinia, but we will cross other terrain on our journey and therefore encounter another era: the Jurassic, 160-176 million years ago. We will find the testimonies of the past throughout our trek, that during the week will help us understand what happened millions and millions of years ago.

• Wild and uncontaminated landscapes

Paolo Mulas, Environmental and Excursion Guide

My luck has been to transform my lifelong passion into a profession! For over two decades I have accompanied groups of people through the mountains of the twin islands and at the end of a trip, I take home with me the emotions that I experienced on my first exploratory trek. The natural environment, people, different cultures and diversity in general, fascinate me and I’m irresistibly attracted to them. I elaborate all our Explora 360° trips and adventures looking at them from the customers point of view, so everything down to the smallest details is always carefully planned and thought out.
