Trip Info

S’Istrada Longa is a wonderful hike that crosses the wildest part of the coastal Supramonte (Ogliastra) and allows us to discover two unique wonders that Mother Nature has carved in white limestone: the ledge of S’Istrada Longa and S ‘Arcada Manna.

We’ll start our hiking adventure not far from the top of Bruncu Sartainosti (931 meters), steeply descending to the majestic Bacu (Valley) S’Orruargiu. A marvelous panorama of the valley will open up to you, bordered by towering limestone walls; you will feel like you are in a corner of the world where time has stood still, preserving the wild and pristine nature. Along S’Istrada Longa, we’ll have to follow the limestone ledge that slowly tapers off, simply turning into a narrow path suspended halfway up the imposing Bacu S’Orrargiu. The nature around us is quite outstanding, which will make you feel as if you are in the fantasy world of Tolkien’s, “Middle Earth!” Down the wall of this wonderful Bacu, we’ll be ready to go up the opposite side where we’ll discover a daunting natural arch called S’Arcada Manna. Once again, we’ll be delighted by the spectacle of this colossal natural arch, created by Mother Nature, that connects Bacu S’Orruargiu with Bacu Urutzò. We will make our way up this majestic, natural wonder. Once again, the Supramonte gives us a glimpse of the world of incomparable beauty.
