Sliding gently from the river to the sea

Paddling from the river to the sea on your canoe? In Sardinia, you can enjoy the experience of a fairy-tale scenario, while the sound of the waves accompanies you through the unspoilt nature
a calm pace on the rivers and lakes

Armed with a canoe, a paddle and a backpack containing everything you need for an unforgettable experience. Sardinia offers you activities to complement the relaxing time you spend on the beach, like canoeing and water trekking. You can set off from the fluvial areas: along the Tirso, where numerous kayak excursions are organized, through the Cedrino lake, with its calm waters and sheer walls of greenery, or along the winding Posada rivulet, in the Tepilora regional park , until you ‘flow’ into the enchanting Bèrchida oasis.

The eastern coast, particularly the gulf of Orosei in the waters of Cala Gonone, is the perfect place for kayaking enthusiasts who wish to paddle along and discover the coast. The silence, the bewitching sound of the waves, the unusual landscapes and the underwater wonders of the crystal clear waters urge numerous visitors to explore the area every year. The Sardinian coasts are one of the most charming scenarios for water trekking, thanks to the numerous, spectacular coves, cliffs, caves and beaches, where you can stop off to take a breather and have a snack.

from north to south, Sardinia is the home of water trekking

Northern Sardinia also has interesting surprises in store for sea kayaking enthusiasts, especially in the Capo Caccia area, where a series of more or less difficult routes can be tackled. Among the most popular and ideal places for paddling, there is Stintino, the island of Asinara and the archipelago of La Maddalena, from Caprera to Spargi. And don't forget the south: the eastern side, with its not-to-be-missed beaches of Villasimius and those of Costa Rei and the western side, between the splendid coast of Pula and the unparalleled area of Chia, which took the first place in the 2016 Blue Guide of Legambiente and Touring Club Italiano. Don't miss out on an alternative way of discovering the Sardinian sea.
