You can enjoy wild nature of the Gennargentu Mts or try to spot a Sardinian deer in Mt. Arcosu or the wild horses at the Giara di Gesturi. Or you can spot the birds in one of the several lagoons of the island (including the pink flamingos).
The rich culinary tradition and wine production makes Sardinia an attractive destination for food lovers.
Finally you can enjoy one of the many folkloristic happenings scattered allover the year to be projected in a journey across time
