Hike 'Mines in the blue' with a guide


The hike 'Mines in the blue' is called so because it follows the paths marked by the miners who worked in the mines of the area.

This is the most beautiful and evocative hike on the coast, along with the oldest limestone in Italy, 500 million years old. It offers breathtaking views of the sea stack called Pan di Zucchero (sugarloaf) and the geological site of Canal Grande, a characteristic site of the geological peculiarities of Sulcis Iglesiente. The Mines in the Blue route is about 10 km long and is suitable for people with a certain level of training that can walk for several hours continuously. The ring includes a challenging climb however the descent towards Masua is reasonably easy. Before departure, it will be possible to visit the site of Porto Flavia.
