Ogliastra is renowned for the beauty of the sea and its beaches, but there is a largely unknown “treasure” found in the inland areas. Lesser known locations and places, but among the most fascinating and evocative of Sardinia, capable of touching the strings of the soul while remaining engraved in the mind. Unforgettable memories take the form of “heels”, limestone-dolomite mountains that rise majestically framed by lush forests, capable of offering breathtaking views.
Wild Ogliastra Quad Excursions allow everyone to enter this dimension, among the most characteristic Ogliastra heels in the territories of Ulassai and Osini.
A unique experience driving quads, among dirt paths immersed in the wild woods and particular rock formations.
You can visit spectacular waterfalls such as that of “Lequarci” and several caves, thanks to the karst and hypogenic heritage of the area. It is possible to admire various prehistoric testimonies such as the tombs of the giants and the nuraghi, including the imposing “Serbissi” fortress.
Even a snack can become a unique experience enjoyed inside an ancient “Barracu”, the typical buildings where shepherds took refuge in the past.
With Wild Ogliastra the experience can be done in groups of up to 12 people, thanks to the fleet of 6 latest generation Polaris “all-terrain vehicles”.
An alternative way to experience nature with the right dose of adrenaline, arriving in places that are difficult to reach by trekking or by other means.
Accompanied by Enrico Cannas, a trained and expert guide, you can “get on” the quad and as the only requirement the driving license A, A1 or B, with the possibility of transporting a passenger. Even a parent can share this experience with their child.
This agile and compact vehicle transmits a great sense of freedom, in difficult and uneven terrain, giving people with physical or mental problems to live experiences usually closed to them.
During the seasons of the year you can observe the different colors and smell the scents of the mountain, given by the rich biodiversity of flora and botanical endemisms. It is not uncommon while walking along the characteristic paths, between the sheer cliffs and the numerous water sources, to encounter species of the area’s wildlife. Wild boars, deer and birds of prey are frequent sightings.
Wid Ogliastra Excursions offers two types of routes with different lengths of time. You can decide whether to venture into the “Waterfalls” itinerary for a total of 3 and a half hours, or the “Nuraghes” itinerary which lasts approximately 4 and a half hours. Both are full of charm: the first for a more naturalistic cut, while the other winds with several stops on different archaeological sites.
We leave every day from the enchanting Ulassai in the morning at 9.00, and come back around 12.00 / 13.30, and in the afternoon from 15.00 to 18 / 19.30.
