Upon your arrival, at the airport or port of Olbia, you will find a representative of Italy-Trails who will welcome you and give you your travel tools. After a 20-30 minute car ride you will arrive in the sunny village of Golfo Aranci. Once in Golfo Aranci you will board a beautiful sailing boat that will be your home for the first five days of your holiday. Depending on your arrival time, after getting settled in your cabin and arranging your luggage, you will have the pleasure of visiting the old fishing village. Take a walk on the promenade full of stone sculptures and admire the Canto della Sirena, a bronze statue, dedicated to the seafarers who emerge from turquoise waters every day, enchanting all passers-by with their Sardinian songs. You will then dine in one of the typical restaurants where you will have the opportunity to savor the delicious dishes based on fresh fish and seafood, accompanied by excellent Vermentino wine, typical of the area. First night on board in a double cabin.
After breakfast we will be ready to drop the moorings and set sail to the northern area of the Gulf of Olbia, between enchanting white sand beaches and the high limestone cliffs of the Capo Figari promontory. We will drop anchor in one of the many sheltered coves to have lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing, swimming and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters rich in colorful fish. An aperitif with cheese, cold cuts and wine typical of the area will whet your appetite while you admire a spectacular sunset and then dine under the stars. Night anchored at sea in a double cabin.
Breakfast on board and a sailing adventure dedicated to dolphin watching. A large family of bottlenose dolphins lives permanently in the waters surrounding Golfo Aranci. It’s common to see both young and adult dolphins swim and play near the fish breeding plant near the islet of Figarolo. Interacting with them and being able to photograph them while dancing under the bow of the boat is an unforgettable experience. After lunch you will take a tour with a small dinghy to explore the area, visiting small bays and beaches that cannot be reached by boat. During this mini dinghy tour, you will have the opportunity to spot the local wildlife such as mouflons, cormorants, herring gull and Corsican gull. At sunset, an aperitif and dinner based on typical Sardinian products will be served, accompanied by local wine or beer. Night anchored at sea in a double cabin.
