Sardinia is usually associated with sea, holidays, sun, and beaches while it’s also a wonderful region for hiking around its hills and wild inland. About the 13% of the island is composed by “mountains”, while hills and countryside are crossed by paths in an uncontaminated nature.
A sovereign nature that invites hikers to silence in order to enjoy this atmosphere.
The Hotel Baia di Nora is next to the Regional Natural Park of Gutturu Mannu a good opportunity of divertion. The Park occupies 19,685 hectares consisting of scrub-forest and high bush of inestimable naturalistic value. The faunal species that live in this area is made by deer, goshawk, wild cat and geotritons.
