Albergo Diffuso Ghivine organises excursions and daytrips for guests to discover the wilds of the Supramonte area, and the wonderful coastline of the Gulf of Orosei. In particular we arrange:
Discover one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful stretches of coastline in a motorboat or speedboat for unforgettable days out in the Gulf’s turquoise waters. Visit the beaches of Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and a host of other unique bays.
Two karst cave networks await you. The first opens out onto the sea with 70 km of tunnels, almost one kilometre of which can be visited on foot. The second is a huge chasm set inside the mountain itself, and is home to Europe’s largest stalagmite column.
The Archaeological Museum in the centre of Dorgali is home to exquisite relics unearthed in the nearby villages of Serra Orrios, Nuraghe Mannu and Tomba dei Giganti (Giant’s Graves) of S’ena e Thomes.. All are places best visited with a professional guide who can offer the best insight into the roots of Sardinia’s ancient civilisation.
The world-famous archaeological site of Tiscali, set in the heart of Supramonte, conceals a karst sinkhole and a mysterious Nuragic village. An incredible outdoor experience which astonishes visitors right from the very outset.
The erosive effect of the Flumineddu River has created Italy’s deepest Canyon, one of the largest in Europe. The walls of the gorge are over 400m high and tower above a wild and fascinating route. A must-see for trekkers from all over the world, it is also accessible to less expert walkers.
Tour in a Land Rover of the wonderful Montes forest to an altitude of over 1,300 a.s.l.. Traditional lunch with the shepherds is followed by a tour of the murals in the village of Orgosolo.
Crossing Lake Cedrino in a kayak is without doubt one of the most authentic experiences of all for those coming to Dorgali. Visitors are plunged into the surrounding countryside, far from the busier tourist destinations, between basalt rockfaces on one side and limestone on the other. Kayaking on this body of water makes for a truly peaceful experience.
Fans of more active forms of tourism can set off on guided tours that unveil the local lakes, coastlines, caves and mountains.
A unique experience suited to all in the family for discovering Sardinian traditions. S’Abba Frisca is the largest ethnographic museum in Sardinia, brought to life throughthe restoration of an old agricultural property and set in exceptional natural parklandwith fountains, cascades and plants of the Mediterranean maquis.
