Sardinia - Short break in the heart of nothing, 4 Days

Sa Rutta

At an exclusive eco-camp on suspended tents. A truly unforgettable experience in a perfect synergy between man and wilderness. Built by respecting and adapting to the shape of the land, this camp completely immersed in nature, perfectly embraces our values of sustainability. 4-days from/to Cagliari, after a visit to the Nuragic civilisation we set off for the wild part of Sardinia among waterfalls, green emerald pools and we end our trip with the forbidden "pearl" of Murtas Beach. Here you can unplug and recharge on a setting you don’t expect!


Crystal-clear waters, incredible blue sea, white sunny beaches embraced by a wild and varied nature...These are the images that commonly come to mind when talking about Sardinia, but beyond the coast, there is an island with a unique archaeological heritage and ancient traditions that even many Italians do not know. A great treasure kept in the heart of the island at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea.
